Linking Sensor Data to a Cloud-based Storage Server Using a Smartphone Bridge
MetadataShow full item record
There is a need for systems that unify the processes of collecting, storing and analysing long-term sensor data in multi-user contexts. The ubiquity and communication features of smartphones make them suitable as data aggregation platforms for standalone sensors. Cloud-based servers are advantageous for their centralisation and scalability in the storage and processing of data. This paper conceptualises a method to link sensors with a cloud server by detailing a smartphone application design (for collecting, aggregating and transmitting data from connected sensors), communication protocol (to preserve security and integrity of data during transmission) and storage methodology (to protect data during processing and storage within the cloud server). Overall, this paper presents design concepts to link sensors with cloudbased storage and provides details of a health-based implementation that applies them.
