NUSSensorGrid

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) system capable of doing distributed data mining and process optimization.
