User Requirements and Future Expectations for Geosensor Networks – An Assessment
Considerable progress has been made on the technical development of sensor networks. However increasing attention is now also required for the broad diversity of end-user requirements for the deployment of sensor networks. An expert survey on the user requirements and future expectations for sensor networks was carried out. Both technology and applications are seen as main drivers for sensor network deployment however harmonization of (open) standards to collect, access, manage, and integrate sensor data are considered crucial for further development. Although sensor based applications are increasingly used in every day life, their use in decision making requires further improvement of aspects like privacy, data quality, etc. Finally, next to formal sensor networks, standardization will allow voluntary sensor information to become a significant sensor data source.
