Abstract: One of the recent tendencies for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) that significantly increases their performance and functionality is the utilization of mobile nodes. This paper describes the software architecture of an intelligent autonomous gateway, designed to provide the necessary middleware between locally deployed sensor networks based on mobile node and a remote location. The gateway provides hierarchical networking, auto management of the mobile wsn (MWSN), alarm notification and SMS/Internet access capabilities with user authentication. Our architecture includes three multi agent system modules, an interface module, a management module and a treatment module. The management module consists of two agents, a control communication agent, and a learning agent. The control communication agent interacts with the interface module and the treatment module in order to decide which data mule can reach the target. Several factors such as battery status, coverage issues, and communication situations have been taken into consideration.
