Project summary

WISE-WAI (pronounced the same as "wise way") means WIreless SEnsor networks for city-Wide Ambient Intelligence. It is a three-year effort that blends scientific research and engineering together toward the definition and deployment of integrated solutions for ambient intelligence in large, city-wide scenarios. WISE-WAI will boost technological advancement in the field of wireless sensor and actuator networks, ultimately providing a wide-area testbed for the demonstration of the functionalities and capabilities designed, and the applications that can be  run on the testbed itself.

The research work developed as part of this project will address the main open technical problems related to the deployment of large scale wireless sensor and actuator networks, having energy efficiency, heterogeneity and scalability as the major guidelines. The research issues addressed by the project are very challenging and at the forefront of sensor network research, and will lead to very significant advancements in the state-of-the-art.

The project is structured into four main technical workpackages (dealing respectively with application and architectural issues, low-energy hardware, adaptive algorithms and protocols, and experimental facilities and demonstration). The connection among the workpackages and the resulting synergies will ensure the success of the project as a cohesive effort towards a complete system design and evaluation.


The CaRiPaRo Concept


Project objectives

WISE-WAI aims at fostering progress to current knowledge in the areas of communications and networking architectures and protocols for sensor networks and low-energy devices. These research results will be integrated into a complete system design for a sensor network in a city environment, which includes examples of real applications, as well as a proof-of-concept demonstrator to show how this system works and how it performs. Key features of the demonstration include real-time collection, processing and access to the data, location and tracking of moving nodes, and interworking of the testbeds with other networking technologies.
