4CeeD: Real-Time Data Acquisition and Analysis Framework for Material-related Cyber-Physical Environments

4CeeD: Real-Time Data Acquisition and Analysis Framework for Material-related Cyber-Physical Environments

4CeeD focuses on the immense potential of capturing, accurately curating, correlating, and coordinating materials-to-devices digital data in a real-time and trusted manner before fully archiving and publishing them for wide access and sharing. In particular, 4CeeD consists of novel services: a curation service for collecting data from microscopes and fabrication instruments, curating, and wrapping of data with extensive metadata in real-time and in a trusted manner, and a cloud-based coordination service for storing data, extracting meta-data, analyzing and finding correlations among the data. Our evaluation results show that our novel cloud framework can help researchers significantly save time and cost spent on experiments, and is efficient in dealing with high-volume and fast-changing workload of heterogeneous types of experimental data.
