Abstract

Grids of computing and storage resources have been extended with a new type of resources, the instruments, in what is referred to as instrumentation grids. Sensor grids can be viewed as an instance of instrumentation grids, whereby wireless sensor networks are integrated within a distributed computing/storage resource-sharing environment. They enable wireless sensor networks with computing power, high-capacity storage and standardized interaction with users and other sensor networks. In this chapter we propose a sensor grid based on the architecture and services of the instrumentation grid as developed within the GRIDCC project. We also present a sensor grid testbed and application that we deployed to study and improve our architecture.
