Grigori Babitski, Simon Bergweiler, Jörg Hoffmann, Daniel Schön, Christoph Stasch, Alexander C. Walkowski
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This is important, in particular, in disaster management, where the flow of information is overwhelming and sensor data must be easily accessible for non-experts (fire brigade officers).  ...  With the specifications defined through the Sensor Web Enablement initiative of the Open Geospatial Consortium, flexible integration of sensor data is becoming a reality.  ...  The Sensor Observation Service (SOS) is part of the SWE framework and offers a pull-based access to observations and sensor descriptions [18] .  ...

Active Self-Testing Noise Measurement Sensors for Large-Scale Environmental Sensor Networks

Federico Domínguez, Nguyen The Cuong, Felipe Reinoso, Abdellah Touhafi, Kris Steenhaut
2013 Sensors  
Several environmental network projects have started using off-the-shelf low-cost microphone sensors to reduce their costs, but these sensors have higher failure rates and produce lower quality data.  ...  To offset this disadvantage, we developed a low-cost noise sensor that actively checks its condition and indirectly the integrity of the data it produces.  ...  Acknowledgments This research is part of the IDEA (Intelligent, Distributed Environmental Assessment) project, a 4-year strategic basic research project, financially supported by the IWT-Vlaanderen (Flemish  ...

2019 IEEE Internet of Things Journal  
In order to address these issues, we propose a novel framework with an efficient semantic data processing pipeline, allowing for real-time observation of the pulse of a city.  ...  To evaluate our system, we use real-time sensor observations that have been published via an open platform called Open Data Aarhus by the City of Aarhus.  ...  A sensor service description is denoted as s d = (t d , g, q d , P d , F oI d , f d ), where t is the sensor event type, g is the service grounding, q d is a QoS vector describing the QoS values, P d is  ...
