Abstract:

Honeywell has been developing an exciting new Web-based architecture called SensWeb. This totally new approach to information sharing and decision-making for vehicle health monitoring and condition-based maintenance applications consists of numerous hundreds to thousands of sensors. These low-cost sensors i.e., polymer thick film are highly redundant in nature and have some processing capability and memory capacity. Sensors can be configured to have individualized passive or active sensor webs to increase coverage and improve overall sensor network performance. The SensWeb architecture is logically organized into three layers of processing the individual sensor, web clusters of sensor nodes, and collections of sensor web clusters.
