Street CORNERS: An Architecture for Correlation of Networked Environmental Sensors

Wireless sensors are used to monitor a number of single environmental factors, such as tremors associated with earthquakes, beach erosion, animal habitats and civil infrastructures, such as bridges and roads. In isolation, the data gathered has no importance.

Using the Kean University campus and along with researchers in the Geology and Meteorology Department, an urban environment such as a street corner, roof top, or public open space is used as a site for multiple wireless sensors, which send data back to MMNetLab via a mesh network, where the environmental data is correlated and contextually analyzed. Research outcomes include urban pollution patterns, and real-time alerts.
