The gradual integration of sensors into many aspects of daily life, will generate enormous volumes of data, which is likely to grow exponentially as we move into an age of “big sensor data” which will leverage capabilities such as cloud infrastructures for storage, processing and visualization. Access to this data will become pervasive as sensors form a key cornerstone in the internet of things. Intelligent processing of data and context-based visualization are critical to delivering meaningful and actionable information. This paper looks at the various methods to process, interpret, and display sensor data to end users.
