OpenSense aims at investigating community-based sensing using wireless sensor network technology to monitor air pollution. We are working on solving technical challenges in the context of the communication and information systems infrastructure, to scale up from isolated well controlled systems to an open and scalable infrastructure where many nano-scale sensors generate terabytes of data. The research challenges we are dealing with include route and measurement scheduling, sensor calibration, and identification and classification of pollution sources.
OpenSense is financed by nano-tera research program.
