The Center for Advanced Studies in Adaptive Systems (CASAS) at Washington State University produces a “Smart Home in a Box”, or SHiB. SHiBs contain a variety of sensors which collect and report data in real-time to the CASAS lab. Typical SHiB sites consist of existing homes and elderly care facilities. Before the start of this project, the raw sensor data was simply parsed and stored in the CASAS database. In order to interact with the large amount of sensor data and the realtime messaging capability of the SHiBs, CASAS commissioned the Web-based On-Board Real-time Rendering Data System (WORRDS) and tasked its creation to our senior design team. WORRDS would help system maintainers decide to change batteries at a site by providing a means of viewing the battery data on a browser. It would further aid maintainers by automating the process of creating and editing sensor maps of SHiB sites. WORRDS would also allow researchers to visualize behavioral data for easier analysis, as well as enable caregivers to monitor the activities of the SHiB occupants in real-time. Additionally, users would have accounts on WORRDS with different authorizations to the data. The overall motivation behind WORRDS was to save stakeholders time and money and better inform their decisions.
