It is posited that, through the integration of data services in cities can be transformed. In particular, it is thought that pervasive and ubiquitous networked embedded sensing systems can contribute to this transformation. This can be achieved through the exploitation of resultant sensor data stream. In order to effectively consider this hypothesis, it is(More)
This review paper presents and places in context findings from 23 manuscripts based on the data sets of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD). The NICHD study tracked the development of more than 1000 children from birth through age 15. The children were born across the(More)
A variety of wireless networks, including applications of Wireless Sensor Networks, Internet of Things, and Cyber-physical Systems, increasingly pervade our homes, retail, transportation systems, and manufacturing processes. Traditional approaches communicate data from all sensors to a central system, and users (humans or machines) query this central point(More)
The number of Internet-connected sensing and control devices is growing. Some anticipate them to number in excess of 212 billion by 2020. Inherently, these devices generate continuous data streams, many of which need to be stored and processed. Traditional approaches, whereby all data are shipped to the cloud, may not continue to be effective as cloud(More)
The use of energy harvesting for powering wireless sensors is made more challenging in most applications by the requirement for customization to each specific application environment because of specificities of the available energy form, such as precise location, direction and motion frequency, as well as the temporal variation and unpredictability of the(More)
Soon, pervasive computers will enormously outnumber humans. Devices requiring sufficient energy to operate maintenance-free for periods of years and beyond render today's technologies insufficient. With the gap between energy requirements of embedded systems and achievable levels of harvested power reducing, viable hybrid energy and power management(More)
Pervasive sensing—the capability to deploy large numbers of sensors, to link them to communication networks, and to analyze their collective data—is transforming many industries. In mining, networked sensors are already used for remote operation, automation, including driverless vehicles, health, and safety, and exploration. In this paper, the(More)
