SmartSensor Proof of Concept
Abstract This chapter illustrates the use of the SmartSensor infrastructure through
the development of an application in the domain of smart buildings. Smart buildings
are buildings instrumented with smart devices designed to provide high flexibility
of use and the ability to evolve and adapt according to the needs of organizations
and human beings, aiming at increasing users comfort and safety and optimizing
the operation and managing of several functions inside and outside the building
while increasing its energy efficiency. There are plenty of applications within the
broad domain of smart buildings, varying from applications to control light, humidity
and temperature of rooms to fire and intrusion detection. We choose a parking lot
management application to present the main functionalities and potential benefits of
SmartSensor. The application consists of a wireless sensor network (WSN) based
vehicle detection sub-system connected to the SmartSensor infrastructure. The WSN
gathers information on the availability of each parking lot and the SmartSensor
infrastructure processes the information and provides a Web interface to guide the
driver to the available lots.

6.1 Overview
This chapter demonstrates the use of the SmartSensor infrastructure through the
development of an application in the domain of smart buildings. According to [ 2 ],
smart buildings are buildings equipped with smart devices designed and constructed
to offer great flexibility of use, providing the ability to evolve and adapt according to
the needs of organizations and to provide at each moment, the best possible support
for their activities. Furthermore, smart buildings must be equipped with systems
for automation, computing and communications, which enable, in an integrated and
