EnviroSensing Collaboration Area: Sensors and Sensibility

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ESIP EnviroSensing Collaboration Area was organized around the need to create resource guides and share deployment strategies for real-time sensor networks. This session is intended to provide a forum for sharing current research efforts in the management of sensor networks and sensor data and will feature the following talks: Janet Fredericks will describe an update on the X-DOMES project (Cross-Domain Observational Metadata Environmental Sensing) funded by NSF as part of the EarthCube Integrative Activities. The X-DOMES project's primary goal is to work with sensor manufacturers to encourage them to begin to fully-describe sensors using a combination of controlled-vocabularies, OGC-SWE, SensorML and the Semantic Web. This update will feature the importance of sensor and processing metadata and in creating standardized methods for communicating this information. Mike Botts will focus on the OpenSensorHub which allows you to easily, rapidly, and affordably transform networked sensors into a seamless SensorWeb of real-time, location-aware, interoperable, web accessible services. Vasu Kilaru will discuss the elements necessary to take full advantage of new sensor technologies. The development and proliferation of new sensor technology and the internet of things (IoT) is having a profound effect on environmental monitoring. Once the purview of government and academia, sensors have democratized this function such that anyone has the capability to do environmental monitoring of things like air quality and water quality. But in order for this brave new world of cell phones and sensors to contribute constructively to society a number of structural/infrastructural developments are needed. The EnviroSensing Collaboration Area welcomes other related talks or reports into this session.
