Title: A Practical Implementation and Simulation of 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. This presentation describes a framework that exploits the potential of Unmanned Ground Vehicles and Unmanned Ariel Vehicles to realize a mobile hybrid wireless senor network. Such a network can effectively provide remote sensing and monitoring for the critical scenarios listed above. The presentation will demonstrate some practical implementations and simulation results, further it provides an overview of the design challenges and proposed solutions for the realization of the hybrid network.
