EMbedded MONitoring

Objective

The vision of smart locations is of significant societal interest today. For example, a smart city can monitor its levels and distribution of air pollution and give recommendation to European citizen about where to walk and where to drive. This helps to improve sustainability of urban life. This societal vision requires however that monitoring of huge geographical extensions is performed in real time. The EMMON project aims to allow such monitoring using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) devices – small communicating & cooperative nodes with sensors.
In order to achieve this ambition, EMMON will perform technological research at the level of devices, in new, efficient, and low power consumption communication protocols, embedded software with better overall energy efficiency, secure, fault-tolerant and reliable middleware for large scale monitoring and remote command & control operational systems for end-users. The project will deliver results in all these fields.
All research and development efforts are targeted to allow the use of thousands of devices in distributed large scale networks.
The objective is to accomplish that these embedded devices can be placed in the environment to perform continuous monitoring and situation analysis, targeted at specific scenarios (water pipelines, urban quality of life, forest and marine environments, civil protection) detecting abnormal variations and broadcast rapidly alarms and alerts.
The quantified goal of the project is to create technologies that allow effective monitoring with 10,000 to 100,000 devices, monitoring an area of 50 square km in a real world scenarios. This would advance WSN deployment size by one order of magnitude. The consortium will use simulation to test if advancements of two orders of magnitude are possible with the EMMON resulting technology.
