Event Stream Processing (NSF)

CSE Professor Sharma Chakravarthy has received a $275,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to integrate stream processing with event processing to meet the needs of new applications for intelligent home monitoring, accident monitoring on highways and in other areas.

Pervasive computing applications generate large volumes of data that need to be processed in a timely manner. Sensor applications that monitor fire hazards in buildings and continuous monitoring movement of hazardous cargo are examples of such applications. Currently these applications cannot be handled readily by either stream processing, which provides processing of sensor data as it is generated, or or event processing.

This project, which provides learning and research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, proposes several novel approaches that have far reaching implications for environmental monitoring and RFID-based applications. The grant is for three years.

Research results will be shared via the project's Web site. Dr. Chakravarthy is the director of the Information Technology Laboratory and the Distributed and Parallel Computing Cluster at UTA.
