Sensor Standards Harmonization--Path to Achieving Sensor Interoperability



Kang B. Lee


Distributed sensor networks are emerging technology for building applications in control and condition monitoring of equipment and machinery in government and industry. Open sensor interfaces, standard sensor data formats, and messaging standards are needed to enable the integration, access, fusion, use, and delivery of sensor-derived data for these applications. The Sensor Standards Harmonization Working Group was formed at NIST to address these types of issues. This paper examines some relevant open standards that can help to achieve seamless sensor connections, integration, discovery, access, and usage within and across systems, networks, and enterprises through the Web.
