sensor networks integrated with grid computing
There is increasing interest in sensor webs and efforts to integrate sensors and instruments to the Grid.
Our work focuses on integrating sensor and actuator networks, in particular, to the Grid. This will enable real-time data mining and decision-making which can influence the underlying process as it unfolds.
Status of Project
We currently have a web-services-based interconnected sensor network and grid computing (based on Globus Toolkit 4) architecture capable of doing distributed data mining.
