Development of methods and technology to measure, analyze, communicate and visualize data give the possibilities to develop application, services and business coupled to the winter test industry.
One example of such a future application is to measure temperature and via a map in a mobile phone or GPS-navigator visualize the temperature variations along the road. In this way a test driver could receive firsthand information of the temperature along the road.
This solution is of particular interest to the test of climate control, combustion engines and in the future HEV technologies. Additional business benefits after identifying the microclimate is the possibility for local weather forecasts.
Research deliverables to realize a prototype system:
• Specification of architecture for energy efficient sensor systems in harsh environments.
• Methods and tools to create energy efficient sensor- and communication systems.
• Simulation, modeling and analysis of communicating sensor systems
• Hardware platform for stationary/mobile data collection and communication
• Software platform for stationary/mobile data collection and communication
• Energy efficient sensors and sensor interfaces for stationary/mobile measurement of temperature, air moisture, air pressure, wind speed and direction.
• Development of measurement methods
o Realization of measurement methods in hardware/software
o Verification/validation through test
o Data mining (filtering/compression, aggregation)
o SOA architecture for microclimate service
o Prototype implementation of SOA service
