An Architecture for High
Fidelity Sensor Networks
|The goal of this project is to design a general purpose
architecture for high throughput, high fidelity applications in the sensor
network domain. More to come ... We are currently targeting
two applications: the
CodeBlue Spaulding project in which we monitoring
the limb movements and muscle activity of stroke patients during
rehabilitation exercises, and the
Volcano Monitoring project in which we
investigate the use of wireless sensor networks for monitoring active
