Smart sensor systems will revolutionize several important application areas, such as environmental sensing, digital cities, personal health, and IT infrastructure monitoring, by providing an unprecedented resolution and speed of data collection combined with ample opportunities to obtain novel insights by intelligent data analytics. The design, development, deployment, and use of smart sensor systems require contributions from embedded hardware systems, operating systems, wireless networking, distributed algorithms, stream processing, and machine learning.

Our recent work focuses on easing the configuration of operating system images on single-board computers, environmental monitoring based on infrastructureless communication, complex event processing on mobile devices, deep learning for sensor data analytics, and reactive cloud security and performance monitoring.
