Connection of IEEE 1451 Smart Sensors to the Sensor Web and Control with the Sensor Planning Service
The evolution of technology in electronic circuits and signal processing has
contributed to the development of small sized and enhanced capabilities
sensors. Sensors now have the ability to incorporate signal processing modules,
microprocessors, RAM and network communication adapters into very small space.
This allows them to make com-plicated calculations, self-calibrate, check their
operational status, connect to networks, operate collaboratively with other
sensors or systems and finally provide clients with ready usable data. The
sensors that integrate all these capabilities are called “smart” and, thanks to
their relatively low cost, are now widely adopted and applicable to multi-ple
aspects of science and technology. The widespread use of smart sensors led to
the inflow of many manufacturers in the field of sensor systems and finally to
the develop-ment of numerous network communication and control protocols and
standards. The most popular families of standards are IEEE 1451 and Sensor Web
This thesis introduces smart sensors, sensor networks and their applications,
presents IEEE 1451 and SWE standards and finally creates a prototype plugin for
the connection of sensor devices that use IEEE 1451 standards with the services
of Sensor Web Ena-blement. That connection allows the tasking of the devices
using the Sensor Planning Service and the management of the tasking results and
observations with the Sensor Observation Service. As a result of this thesis,
it is understood that it is possible to achieve full connection between the
sensor systems that use the IEEE 1451 standards and the services of the Sensor
