An integrated cyberinfrastructure for real-time data acquisition and decision making in smart buildings and coral reef monitoring


Buildings and environmental monitoring systems sense their surrounding conditions using various types of sensors. They process information and react to their environments in real time. The integrated cyberinfrastructure (CI) for the real-time data acquisition, real-time data processing and decision making is proposed, analyzed, implemented, and tested in this thesis. The open architecture solution is presented and implemented with open source software packages. Then, the CI is applied in two settings, the simulation and the real world. The smart building application uses the simulation environment, and the coral reef monitoring system uses the sensors deployed in the Pacific Ocean. This research is based on studies performed in Moorea. The use case scenarios and the configuration for detecting and responding to such scenarios are described for both applications
