SMART System: Architecture & Use Cases

SMART System: Architecture & Use Cases

SMART layered architecture

The SMART architecture is layered:

  • Layer 1: Edge Nodes. They communicate with the physical world, by collecting, processing and fusing sensor and social network streams
  • Layer 2: Search Engine. Performs scalable search and retrieval over numerous SMART edge nodes. Offers query processing and Ā«Smart-ReduceĀ» functionalities
  • Layer 3: Applications. They are composed based on queries to the SMART search engine and employ reusable mashup libraries for visualization

SMART layered architecture

Use cases

Two use cases have been identified for the SMART project, and an initial set of objectives are defined. They are detailed here.

The Research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013)
