We propose XDense, a wired mesh grid sensor network architecture tailored for scenarios that benefit from thousands of sensors per square meter. XDense has a scalable network topology and protocol, customizable to application specifics, that enables complex feature extraction in realtime from the observed phenomena by exploiting the communication and distributed processing capabilities of such network topologies. We detail XDense’s node and network architecture, protocols, and principles of operation. To demonstrate XDense’s potentials, we evaluate it’s response time, data traffic metrics and accuracy in the context of detecting fluid dynamic features.
