A Web-Service to Monitor a Wireless Sensor Network

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 11512)


In recent years, the interest in the Internet of Things has been growing, and WSN is a promising technology that could be applied in many situations. Regardless of the nature of the application, WSNs are often used for data acquisition, to obtain information from an environment of interest, so it is essential to consider how this data will be made available to users. Over the last years, an increasing number of web services have been used to deal with databases and final users, providing familiar interfaces and multi-platform access to those data. To address this problem, our study proposes a web application based on MVC architecture to monitor, organize and manage devices and data in a wireless sensor network. Here, is presented a functional evaluation of the proposed system and a discussion regarding the test results.
