Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship Program

"Real-time Data Ingestion and Verification"

About the Project

Project Time & Type:
Summer 2013 - DURI
Research area(s):
Computer Science; Civil Engineering;
Project Description:
The proper acquisition, storage, and preservation of experimental engineering and science data is more critical then ever before. Availability and re-use of such data will accelerate new discoveries in the future. In this project we are developing the cyberinfrastructure to enable researchers to stream data directly into a respository for curation and preservation. The CI tools developed will link to open source tools that exist and that will be developed.
Expected Student Contributions:
Developing components to contribute to the implementation of the cyberinfrastructure proposed to obtain and stream real-time data.
