Project Title

GENI-fying and Federating Autonomous Kansei Wireless Sensor Networks
a.k.a. KanseiGENie

Technical Contacts

Principal Investigator: Anish Arora, Ohio State University,,
Co-Principal Investigator: Rajiv Ramnath, Ohio State University,,
Co-Principal Investigator: Hongwei Zhang, Wayne State University,,

Los Alamos National Labs, Los Alamos, NM


The scope of work on this project is to adapt the large-scale prototype wireless sensor networks of Kansei Consortium to provide GENI-compliant interfaces and principles, to provide publically available support for programmability, virtualization, and slice-based experimentation, and to deploy three geographically dispersed sites in a federated arrangement. Also, provide periodic demonstrations, code releases and installation packages.

Furthermore, provide an experiment interaction dashboard as well as a scripting environment for composing long-running, complex/phased experiments. And finally, provide the Kansei Doctor, whose multi-level invariant-based detector-corrector modules will help make Kansei more self-repairing and autonomic.

Spiral 1 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using should go here. Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLAN IDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.

Location of equipment:

Lab at Ohio State University
Lab at Wayne State University
Lab at Los Alamos National Labs

Ohio State is using their own public IP addresses (please specify). Wayne State IP addresses are TBD. Los Alamos National Labs IP addresses are TBD.

This project will begin with IP connectivity only.

Layer 2 connectivity is TBD.
