The ENORASIS Wireless Sensors Network
ENORASIS has designed its own Wireless Sensors Network of agriculture sensors which is considered as the foundation of the whole system. The network, its components and relations with other parts of the ENORASIS platform are as depicted below:
The ENORASIS WSN system consists of various subsystems:
- The wireless sensors network itself, which covers several geographical zones where measurements are recorded. A number of sensing nodes capture the measurements while other nodes control the amount of water that is released to the field. Other managing activities like relaying data between sensors and the gateway and retrieving data for being sent to the WSN middleware are developed by structural nodes inside the network
- The WSN middleware, in the back side of the WSN system, consists of several server processes that communicate directly to the WSN gateway and logs all the information and data received into the WSN database. The main process is called Listener and is entirely devoted as an interface into the WSN network. Other processes and services communicate with the ENORASIS platform. Sensor information is managed through a SOS (Sensor Observation Service) server, while valve managing is provided through a special API that is accessed by the ENORASIS platform.
