Abstract

The proposed research work represents a generic concept for the synchronised logging, processing and visualisation of any kind of sensor data. The concept enables a chronological coordination and correlation of information from different, distributed sensor networks as well as from any other self-sufficient measurement systems. Based on the achieved relation between the several sensor sources, the information quality can be increased significantly. Accordingly, the aggregated, heterogeneous sensor information are convertible into multiple output formats. Dependent on the application specific requirements for the visualisation, we are able to consider additional meta-information from the test environment to optimise the data representation.

To evaluate of basic usability requirements and the efficiency of the proposed concept, an automotive sensor network represents a capable test system for the proposed framework. Within the demonstrator, the available on-board measurement systems were extended by high-precision sensor nodes, which establish an synchronised sensor network topology.
