SPECIAL – Rajesh Sankaran – (ANL) – Waggle and Array of Things

April 8, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

The Waggle Platform is a research project at Argonne National Laboratory to
design, develop, and deploy a novel wireless sensor platform with advanced edge
computing capabilities to enable a new breed of sensor-driven environmental
science and smart city research. The software and hardware designs from the
Waggle project are used by the NSF funded Array Of Things, which is building
a smart city and open data with urban sensors in Chicago. The innovative
architecture leverages emerging technology in low-power processors, sensors,
and cloud computing to build powerful and reliable sensor nodes that can
actively analyze and respond to data. Cloud computing provides elastic resources
for storing and computing on data. Waggle is designed from the ground up with
security, privacy, extensibility, and survivability as key design points. The
Waggle reference platforms and software are launching points. All of the
software is Open Source, and the software is modular, so researchers can add
their own sensors, computing pipelines, and data analysis. The talk will discuss
the various technical aspects of the Waggle platform and the Array of Things
urban deployment.
