ALPINE: A low power, intelligent, sensor network architecture for environmental management

GSRT Collaboration Grant

alpineThe goal of the proposed work is the design, implementation and evaluation of low power, energy-efficient sensor networks together with a suite of high-level, programming tools that are tailored to the specific requirements of real-time environmental management. Project generic solution will evaluated in two pilot applications, one in the domain of hydrological infrastructure management, and one in the area of wildlife monitoring and protection.

Our investigations will focus on modelling knowledge of the two case studies by means of ontologies, and the development of a domain-specific programming language for environmental sensor networks.
