Sensor and Actuator Networks in Metropolitan Scenarios


Felipe Marques Pires, Gean Davis Breda, Leonardo de Souza Mendes


Vol. 9  No. 10  pp. 44-51


Sensor and actuator networks promise to revolutionize sensing and control in a wide range of application domains because of their particular characteristics. These networks can sense, compute and actuate into the physical environments creating smart solutions and solving critical problems in a variety of science areas such as industrial automation, environmental monitoring and control and smart environment creation. This paper provides a novel architecture to develop a sensor and actuator network in metropolitan scenarios in order to bring technological development to cities, creating services and solutions for government administration and society as a whole.
