Wireless Environmental Monitoring

SEASON enables the environmental monitoring by means of the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology to study environmental processes. The ground in-situ wireless sensors are able to capture the main changes in the environment thanks to their sensing heterogeneity. Wireless sensor networks basically consist of large amount of sensor nodes deployed in large physical area to monitor and detect the real-time environmental activities. The sensors cooperatively collect the data such as temperature, relative humidity, brightness from the surroundings. The available informations create exciting opportunities for large scale and data intensive applications aiming at supporting intelligent decisions of end-users looking at data readings and patterns.

SEASON offers a global-scale framework for sensed data sharing as well as sensor observation services to close the gap between the scattered WSNs and the Sensor Web application layer.

Such real-time sensor acquisitions are the fundamental inputs of data mining techniques for extracting the useful information through data clustering, pattern matching, and the detection of sensor data irregularities..
