declarative sensor networks with applications in landslide detection David Chu Computer Science Division EECS Department UC Berkeley iCAST/CMU/TRUST Joint Conference 9 January 2007
motivation programming sensor networks is difficult! building entire sensor systems is even harder!!
inspiration data management network design s e n s o r n e t w o r k s
inspiration : data management declarative is widely used in data management –relational databases –spreadsheets –abstract “what” from “how” (Sensor-Network-As-Database)
inspiration : network design declarative is new idea in networking –compact –flexible –analyzable, optimizable –Internet Routing, Overlays built declaratively (the P2 project)
inspiration data management network design s e n s o r n e t w o r k s ( DSN )
what we did adapted declarative language built compiler & runtime for sensornets wrote declarative examples
P. Levis, N. Patel, D. Culler, S. Shenker. "Trickle: A Self- Regulating Algorithm for Code Propagation and Maintenance in Wireless Sensor Networks." NSDI 2004. … from original Trickle paper… DSN specification 10x6 topology 30x2 topology
application large scale and fine-grained debris flow monitoring
[Left] La Conchita, California – a small seaside community along Highway 101 south of Santa Barbara. This landslide and debris flow occurred in the spring of 1995. A reoccurrence in 2005 claimed 4 lives and resulted in 29 missing persons. [Right] Chehalis, Washington - landslides and debris flows during the winter storms of February 1996. Photographs by R.L. Schuster, U.S. Geological Survey.
[Above] The locations of the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 debris flow deployment sites. [Top Right] Smoke from the Day Fire. [Middle Right] Recently burned hillside in Burbank, CA was the site of two debris flows in 2005-2006 Winter season. [Bottom Right] Base of the channel after debris flow with remaining sediment. [Bottom Left] Burn- resilient vegetation is quickly recovering just a few months after the fires and debris flows. Harvard Burn Site Day Fire
[Above] Parshall flume used in conjunction with water level logger at the channel’s choke-point. [Top Right] Custom overland flow sensor for fine- grained detection of water runoff. [Bottom Right] Solar-powered base station for actuating and gathering data from the wireless sensor network, shown here connected to laptop during testing.
conclusion sensor networks → data + communication several examples of functional programs feasible for today’s hardware platforms preparing for landslide deployment
