SemSorGrid4Env in a nutshell

The main objective of SemsorGrid4Env is to specify, design, implement, evaluate and deploy a service-oriented architecture and middleware which allows application developers to build open large-scale semantic-based sensor network applications for environmental management. Such architecture and middleware will enable the rapid development of thin applications (e.g., mashups) that require real-world real-time data coming from heterogeneous sensor networks, making it possible to use sensors for other environmental management purposes than those that they were originally expected to have (hence reducing sensor network deployment costs) and to combine their real-time data with historical data from other data sources, opening possibilities of improving current decision-making procedures in a variety of situations (emergencies, monitoring, etc.).
