Introduction: The SensorWeb Project: Unifying Sensor Networks and Grid Computing with the World-Wide Web. The SensorWeb project aims at developing Open SensorWeb Architecture (OSWA) and implementing standards compliant platform and middleware for integration of sensor networks with emerging distributed computing platforms such as Grids. It confirms to Web Services standard defined by the W3C (World-Wide Web) and SensorML (Sensor Model Language) standard defined by the OpenGeospatial Consortium. This integration of sensor networks with Grid computing brings out dual benefits: (i) sensor networks can off-load heavy processing activities to the Grid and (ii) Grid-based sensor applications can provide advance services for smart-sensing by deploying scenario-specific operators at runtime. Our Open SensorWeb Architecture consists of four layers: sensor fabric layer, core services, user-level services, and applications. Core services are provided by lower-level layer components whereas components at the user-level layer provide tools for creation of applications and management of life-cycle of data captured through sensor networks. click here for more details.
