Research Institution
The problem in sharing sensor information is that each platform has a specialized language which has evolved over many years that may be significantly different across platforms. Interface definitions may be as simple as defined structures, perhaps added metadata, or evolved to include a formal ontology. Regardless of the classification scheme used, much work is required to compare and map these disparate interface definitions. Automation tools are desperately needed to ease and expedite this process. Progeny offers a common solution not only to streamline the information discovery process, but to use the same common reference model to provide automated information translation seamlessly enabling sensor-to-sensor communication across disparate sensor ontologies. Several automated tools are proposed based on extending existing capabilities from related work developments and the emerging ISO/IEC Extended Metadata Registry standard.
