Abstract Advances on wireless communication and sensor systems enabled the growing usage of Wireless Sensor Networks. This kind of network is being used to support a number of new emerging applications, thus the importance in studying the efficiency of new approaches to program them. This paper proposes a performance study of an application using high-level mobile agent model for Wireless Sensor Networks. The analysis is based on a mobile object tracking system, a classical WSN application. It is assumed that the sensor nodes are static, while the developed software is implemented as mobile agents by using the AFME framework. The presented project follows a Model-Driven Development (MDD) methodology using UML (Unified Modeling Language) models. Metrics related to dynamic features of the implemented solution are extracted from the deployed application, allowing a design space exploration in terms of metrics such as performance, memory and energy consumption.
