Abstract

Sensors and networks, both wired and wireless, are key components in building distributed sensor networks nation-wide for monitoring and protecting critical infrastructure such as buildings, airports, railways, bridges, utilities, and water supplies. Tens of thousands of network accessible sensors will be connected to communicate and share sensor data and information among government agencies and private enterprises in order to effectively protect people and property. Open, standardized interfaces and sensor data formats are necessary to enable effective and rapid discovery, access, tasking, integration, fusion, and use of sensor derived data in critical homeland security (HLS) tasks. This paper discusses the approach IEEE and OGC are taking in partnership to advance open standards that enable rapid and seamless transducer (sensor or actuataor) interconnection, discovery, access, integration, and usage within and across systems, networks and enterprises.
