Smart Sensor Mesh: Intelligent Sensor Clusters Configuration and Location Discovery for Collaborative Information Processing
This paper discusses a concept of an intelligent self-configuration of sensors’ clusters in a grid network as an overlay on contemporary grid technologies for processing of the sensory information locally and collaboratively. An approach for information exchange among sensors with utilisation of sensor agents for later service discovery in sensor mesh is proposed. The main task of sensor agents is to localise themselves in information space from the point of view of captured sensory data and not only a geographical location, which is often unknown to the sensors. The experiments were conducted in a large scale lecture room, where several microphones and cameras were installed in order to capture students’ audiovisual activities.
