GeCSen - A Generic and Cross-Platform Sensor Framework for LocON

Date Added: Jul 2011

In this paper, the authors present a generic and crossplatform sensor framework for the LocON location and sensor middleware. This framework is developed using C++/Qt. Sensor information is rapidly gaining importance in automating processes and ubiquitous computing, and so it is for projects like FP7 LocON where the main goal is to integrate embedded location systems and embedded wireless communication in order to manage and secure large scale environments. Accessing sensor information mostly requires platform specific code, but for merging this information and sending it over the internet or displaying it on a device, Qt provides cross-platform libraries.
