Intelligent sensor networks

Usually, sensors – e.g. in an indoor thermometer – are relatively simple pieces of electronic equipment capable of sending one specific type of information to a receiver. But this does not mean that they are not capable of solving relatively complicated tasks – they just need to be able to co-operate.

At CISS, we work on creating systems that are capable of gathering information from a large number of intelligent sensors. This means that a system does not only collect and disseminate single pieces of information – it will also be capable of comparing the gathered information and subsequently provide new information or take action on the basis of this received information. In addition, we work on developing networks of sensors capable of determining whether their measurements are correct or not – and, if they are not, reporting themselves as faulty, so that the rest of the system ignores the information from that sensor until the error has been remedied.
