Abstract: Public safety sensor systems for heavily-populated applications (e.g., airports, convention centers, border crossings, and sport stadiums) require sophisticated, geographically-distributed infrastructures, which usually require centralized supervision and deployment of large-scale security and surveillance networks. New sensor and communication technologies are emerging to capture and process high-quality data, and then transport it rapidly across a wireless network in real time. Recent developments have also been made in semantic data analysis and management technologies enabling more thorough exploitation of such high-quality sensor information. Even so, design challenges exist to develop intelligent, highly-distributed, fault-tolerant, and energy-efficient smart sensor systems. This effort will apply advanced mesh networking, embedded processing techniques, unattended nodes design and semantic data analysis to develop a Semantic Mesh of Intelligent Sensors, (SMIS) system for enhancement of situational awareness, security and environmental analysis. The system will include an intuitive user interface with back-end semantic processing, a dynamically adjustable web of sensors with on-board processing, along with the use of standards-based protocols to ensure that the system is open, extensible and upgradeable, supporting integration with existing data mining systems.
