Architecture and Coordination

SENSAFETY (Sensor Networks for Public Safety)

Objective: To develop architecture for a wireless network for monitoring and control that supports both streaming and event-based data. The architecture must: support two diverse types of network topologies that are typical for the application domain: LANE and CLOUD types of networks, including smart phone opportunistic networks, support heterogeneous sensors, actuators, and networks, provide a framework for distributed data and signal processing, event detection, and control-loops enabling a programming abstraction allowing dynamic and real-time reconfiguration and adaptation.

Work package: The work package starts with a concise assessment and specification of the application requirements. The overall problem requires a thorough analysis of the combined sensor networks, the data to be fused, the level of sensor data enhancements/optimizations and the way communications between responders is affected by the environment.

Two real-life use cases, defined in this work package, form the leading threads for the whole project. One case, provided by VTS Politie NL, employs intelligent cameras, vehicular mounted sensors, mobile phones and environmental sensing; and one case, from Philips Research, uses sensors networks for intelligent lighting systems for public infrastructures (e.g. roads, public transport). The former is basis for CLOUD networks, the latter for LANE networks. The architecture integrates both types of network and is used throughout the rest of the project. The (intermediate) results of WP1 are input for WP3, 4 and 5, while the same WPs are used for refinements in the architecture.
