Post live sensor outputs, via widgets, online

SensedIn, from Cores Electronic, posts live sensors, represented by widgets, on the Internet of things to share data between users.

Cores Electronic has introduced SensedIn, a new concept in sensor media sites that takes advantage of WiFi tag technology as well as the latest developments in Internet technology. SensedIn is a sensor media site that allows you to stay in touch with colleagues and friends by posting live sensors on the Internet. Sensors posted in the SensedIn space are represented by widgets or widget instruments, which is the most basic technology that brings sensor data to web pages. The widget becomes the sensor alter-ego or a second self in the space named SensedIn which is part of the Internet of Things.

A sensor becomes a Cloud Instrument when it is connected to a WiFi tag. The tag digitizes the data to send it on to an Access Point, where the data is routed to the Internet and a Server IP. Here a customized engine is collecting the data for feed into web based applications like metering, charting, control, display, analysis, modeling, data mining, etc. These entire web based customized applications can now be embedded in web pages and media sites by using widget instruments. The widget instrument is a small measurement application that can be embedded and executed within a web page. The widget gets data from a Cloud Instrument and either displays the value as it is or it applies processing on the data before display. The unique features of a widget instrument are small size and embedded in a web page, media site or iPhone/Android/Blackberry/etc. device user interface.

“SensedIn is a media site for sensor measurement and widget instrument display. SensedIn wants to revolutionize the way we humans interact with sensor measurements by using widgets as their alter-egos. It is hard to say at this stage if the SensedIn idea will develop into a popular service. The concept is really forward looking because it enables sensors to become actors in the Internet of Things space. We hope users of sensors to join the movement, bring new ideas, build their own SensedIn sensor sites which we can all link together and develop this into a giant global sensor community.” says company president Marius Ghercioiu. “We are working our way towards an ‘instrumentation cloud’ where not only the sensors but also the logging, analysis and control programs, and now widget deployment and sensor media sites like SensedIn can be anywhere you want them.”
