SenQ: An Embedded Query System for Streaming Data in Heterogeneous Interactive Wireless Sensor Networks

By Anthony D. Wood, Leo Selavo and John A. Stankovic


Abstract. Interactive wireless sensor networks (IWSNs) manifest diverse application architectures, hardware capabilities, and user interactions that challenge existing centralized [1], or VM-based [2] query system designs. To support in-network processing of streaming sensor data in such heterogeneous environments, we created SenQ, a multi-layer embedded query system. SenQ enables user-driven and peer-to-peer in-network query issue by wearable interfaces and other resource-constrained devices. Complex virtual sensors and user-created streams can be dynamically discovered and shared, and SenQ is extensible to new sensors and processing algorithms. We evaluated SenQ’s efficiency and performance in a testbed for assisted-living, and show that on-demand buffering, query caching, efficient restart and other optimizations reduce network overhead and minimize data latency.
