Objective The Norwegian Institute for Air Pollution The Norwegian Institute for Air Pollution monitoring has initiated the project CITI-SENSE-MOB on Mobile Air Pollution measurements. Mobile sensor platforms are going to be installed on buses, cars and bicycles to achieve a wider distribution of measurements, as compared to the limited number of fixed stations. The goal of this thesis is to establish the semantic framework for sensor integration on a global scale. GEOS, the framework for creating a community-driven interoperable geoscience-wide geoinformatics infrastructure, is seen as one of the key candidates for sensor integration and sensor fusion. The expected outcome of the thesis is an integration framework for mobile sensor data, based on semantic technologies. A semantic rule system is envisaged to control the reliability of the sensor system, either as a stand-alone evaluation on the sensor platform, or as a fusion of sensor. Such a fusion might consist of mobile data together with sensor data from other sources, e.g. the fixed air quality stations in order to establish models for reliability.order to establish models for reliability.  +
Pre-Knowledge This thesis includes a reasonable amount of programming. The envisaged thesis is based on radio communications, thus expects the user to have followed at least two radio-related courses  +
