Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 14:30, Dr. Ala’ F. Khalifeh (School of Computer Engineering German-Jordanian University) will give the following seminar:
A Hybrid Wireless Sensor Network for Security Monitoring and Surveillance
Abstract. Wireless sensor networks are widely used in various applications and scenarios of our daily lives. Due to their cost effectiveness and rapid deployment, they became essential elements in providing remote monitoring and surveillance for many critical scenarios such as hostile environments, and battlefields. Other applications may include monitoring areas subject to natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions, and floods or to large-scale accidents such as nuclear plants explosions or chemical plumes. The aim of this talk is to provide an overview about our proposed framework funded under the NATO SPS program, that exploits the potential of Unmanned Ground Vehicles and Unmanned Ariel Vehicles to realize a mobile hybrid wireless sensor network. Such a network can effectively provide remote sensing and monitoring for the critical scenarios listed above. The presentation provides an overview of the design challenges and proposed solutions for the realization of the hybrid network.
In addition to the above talk, Dr. Khalifeh will also briefly talk about the German Jordanian University educational system, and also some other on going projects.
