    77The fourth quarter of the ViSE project includes the following major accomplishments:
    88  * A successful demonstration at GEC6 in July. The demonstration showed integration with a remote Clearinghouse operated by RENCI and Duke in Chapel Hill, NC.
    9   * Submission of four papers on ViSE-related technology. We submitted a paper entitled “Towards a Virtualized Sensing Environment” to !TridentCom 2010, a conference devoted to testbed technologies. The paper describes ViSE’s integration with the Orca control framework and research problems related to operating shared sensing environments. We submitted an extended abstract entitled “ViSE: Broadening Access to Sensors using Shared Virtualized Testbeds” to IGARSS 2010, a conference devoted to geoscience and remote sensing. The call for papers for IGARSS 2010, which focuses on the new field of community remote sensing that combines remote sensing with citizen science, social networks, and crowd-sourcing to enhance the data obtained from traditional sources, is particularly synergistic with the GENI vision and prototype. We view both conferences as excellent opportunities to interact with both testbed builders and potential users of ViSE. We submitted a paper entitled “Cloudy Computing: Leveraging Weather Forecasts in Energy Harvesting Sensor Systems” to SECON 2010, a conference devoted to wireless sensor networks. The paper describes how a GENI-like testbed operated by wind turbines and/or solar panels can make use of weather forecasts provided by the National Weather Service. Finally, we submitted a paper to NSDI entitled “MultiSense: Fine-grained Multiplexing for Steerable Sensor Networks” that describes our sensor virtualization technology.

    1010  * The successful completion of multiple fifth quarter milestones and significant progress toward early milestones in the sixth quarter. The completed milestones include integration with a Clearinghouse operated by RENCI/Duke by 11/16/2009, aggregates ready for experiments by researchers by 11/16/2009, and completion of sensor slivering by 12/1/2009. We have also completed early sixth quarter milestones including the construction of a rapidly deployable node (Pelham node installation has been delayed until after the winter snow melts) and installation of camera devices on the CSB and MA1 tower nodes by January 1st, 2010. Further we have worked with the GPO to setup and test our VLAN connection from UMass-Amherst to BBN in Boston.
    1111  * In keeping with GENI’s broader Spiral 2 goals, we have joined with the DOME team to support a undergraduate student working on a bus tracking experiment using DOME’s network of buses and ViSE’s pan-tiltzoom camera’s mounted on the roof of the computer science building. The bus tracking experiment allocates resources from both DOME and ViSE and is attempting to detect incoming buses using their wireless signal beacon and take a picture of them as they pass by the road in front of our building. The experiment represents coordination between both DOME and ViSE.
