About 2019-nsf-midscale-infra
English (USA)

Realizing the vision of smart communities involves navigating a complex set of technological, operational, political, legal and administrative issues. Legitimate concerns of how privacy will be maintained when communities have widespread, fine-grained sensing capabilities loom. Yet the benefits of such systems are tempting. For example, transportation infrastructure planning and operations require knowing whether, when, where and how people travel. This was traditionally determined based on highly aggregated data over sparse time and space and a single day of sampled individual diaries. Traditional behavioral models are highly theoretical, highly aggregated, and unverified. Better sensing will lead to better transportation. In this research, we will systematically investigate the installation, use and extension of a large-scale, dense Community Information Infrastructure that at first addresses transportation-related sensing and then broadens to sense and infer a wider range of community-related quantities. We have developed suitable sensor, network, and cloud infrastructure means to capture, geo-reference, and analyze spatially- and temporally-dense transportation indicators. These are ready for deployment. Importantly, the latest version of the sensor can measure not just vehicle movement but can also sense acoustic, electromagnetic, and selected atmospheric quantities. Through fused sensing across modalities, this network will become a kind of "Community Observatory" capable of sensing noise pollution; informing spectrum collaboration; studying hyper-local weather patterns; reporting on flooding, icing, and roadway deterioration; and potentially expanding to measurement of transportation-adjacent vegetation, soil moisture, and other quantities. We will integrate community input, public policy considerations, and mechanisms for privacy-preservation. We will develop mechanisms to create a marketplace for sensed data around this infrastructure.
