Recently, SWE (Sensor Web Enablement) working group of OGC (Open General Consortium) is carrying out a research on providing real-time sensor data and video collected in sensor networks through the Internet Web. However, the research does not deal with mobile objects such as cars, trains, ships, and persons. Therefore, we present an integrated processing method of video, sensor data, and location information collected in mobile sensing nodes for tracking and surveillance of mobile objects. The proposed method integrates and processes heterogeneous data from GPS devices, sensor networks, and video devices. Based on the proposed method, we designed and implemented a combine adaptor which receives the context data through a common interface and creates combined messages after parsing and queuing the data. We verified the proposed method works well with our integrated adaptor. The proposed method is expected to be helpful to develop various tracking and surveillance based on location.
