Title: Ad-hoc Sensor Network for Environmental Management: Data Requirements and Data exchange format
Description: COMMON-Sense Net is a multidisciplinary project that aims at designing and implementing a real scale ad-hoc sensor network in rural India (Bangalore area). In this project, we work on a useful, original and technically challenging application of information technologies in developing countries. In order to achieve this, we focus on the ever-growing problem of water-management for agriculture and we envision a water monitoring system that uses wireless sensors. In this project, the student will look at the the definition of a meta-language adapted to the exchange of data related to environmental monitoring. The following issues will be covered: - definition of data requirements through literature search and interview of professionals (farmers, agronomists, hydrologists, environmentalists etc.) - definition of an XML grammar well-suited for agricultural monitoring. - implementation of a concrete application in the framework of COMMON-Sense Net, with database access and retrieval.
