Databases on Embedded Devices and Applications of Environmental and Industrial Sensors

This project has built low-cost sensor nodes for use in irrigation and environmental monitoring and a relational SQL database engine for embedded sensors. Research is focused on system deployment issues including minimizing energy consumption by intelligent design of algorithms for flash memory storage and database algorithms. Our goal is to build a complete database system for embedded devices with maximum performance and a minimum memory footprint. We are deploying our research in environmental monitoring domains including irrigation management. Our sensor-based irrigation system reduced water usage by up to 50% when deployed in a City of Kelowna park.
