Data Management in Sensor Networks

  • Samuel Madden
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3868)


This tutorial will cover recent topics in data management for sensor networks, focusing in particular on high-level systems and languages for querying stored and streaming data in such networks. We will begin with a survey of language proposals, including TinyDB, Cougar, Regions, and other more recent work, and will then examine a range of implementation issues that arise in such systems, including issues related to power efficiency, time synchronization, data collection and dissemination, fault-tolerance, and state management. After attending the tutorial, audience members should have a good understanding of the various systems in this space as well as an awareness of the technical issues that make building such systems difficult.
