Recent developments in wireless sensor networks have ushered in novel ubiquitous computing applications based on distributed large-scale data acquisition and interactive interpretation. However, current WSNs suffer from lack of effective tools to support large network deployment and administration as well as unavailability of interactive visualization techniques required to explore and analyze captured sensing data, which is hindering the development of real-life WSN-based ubiquitous systems. Sensor Explorer addresses the above problems by providing modular efficient stream management engine and novel volume visualization algorithm suitable for WSN data. ©2010 IEEE.
