Sensors are present in various forms all around the world such as mobile phones, surveillance cameras, smart televisions, intelligent refrigerators and blood pressure monitors. Usually, most of the sensors are a part of some other system with similar sensors that compose a network. One of such networks is composed of millions of sensors connected to the Internet which is called Internet of Things(IoT). With the advances in wireless communication technologies, multimedia sensors and their networks are expected to be major components in IoT. Many studies have already been done on wireless multimedia sensor networks in diverse domains like fire detection, city surveillance, early warning systems, etc. All those applications position sensor nodes and collect their data for a long time period with real-time data flow, which is considered as big data. Big data may be structured or unstructured and needs to be stored for further processing and analyzing. Analyzing multimedia big data is a challenging task requiring a high-level modeling to efficiently extract valuable information/knowledge from data. In this study, we propose a big database model based on graph database model for handling data generated by wireless multimedia sensor networks. We introduce a simulator to generate synthetic data and store and query big data using graph model as a big database. For this purpose, we evaluate the well-known graph-based NoSQL databases, Neo4j and OrientDB, and a relational database, MySQL. We have run a number of query experiments on our implemented simulator to show that which database system(s) for surveillance in wireless multimedia sensor networks is efficient and scalable.

Multilevel Object Tracking in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks for Surveillance Applications Using Graph-Based Big Data
Kucukkececi, Cihan; Yazıcı, Adnan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN), for object tracking, have been used as an emerging technology in different application areas, such as health care, surveillance, and traffic control. In surveillance applications, sensor nodes produce data almost in real-time while tracking the objects in a critical area or monitoring border activities. The generated data is generally treated as big data and stored in NoSQL databases. In this paper, we present a new object tracking approach for surveillance applic...
Multilevel object tracking on big graph data using interval type-2 fuzzy systems in wireless multimedia sensor networks
Küçükkeçeci, Cihan; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
Wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSN) are the key elements of automation systems applied in different domains from home security to immigrant surveillance at a border station. In most of the applications, sensor data needs to be processed for data analytics. However, the interpretation of raw sensor data and unveiling the information inside remains a challenging issue from many aspects. As the interval of the sensor data is frequent, data needs to be treated as big data because of the volume and veloci...
Automated Moving Object Classification in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Civelek, Muhsin; Yazıcı, Adnan (2017-02-15)
The use of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) for surveillance applications has attracted the interest of many researchers. As with traditional sensor networks, it is easy to deploy and operate WMSNs. With inclusion of multimedia devices in wireless sensor networks, it is possible to provide data to users that is more meaningful than that provided by scalar sensor-based systems alone; however, producing, storing, processing, analyzing, and transmitting multimedia data in sensor networks requires co...
An Energy - efficient and reactive remote surveillance framework using wireless multimedia sensor networks
Öztarak, Hakan; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
With the introduction of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks, large-scale remote outdoor surveillance applications where the majority of the cameras will be battery-operated are envisioned. These are the applications where the frequency of incidents is too low to employ permanent staffing such as monitoring of land and marine border, critical infrastructures, bridges, water supplies, etc. Given the inexpensive costs of wireless resource constrained camera sensors, the size of these networks will be signific...
A Graph Based Big Data Model for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Küçükkeçeci, Cihan; Yazıcı, Adnan (2016-10-08)
Wireless multimedia sensor networks are of interest to researchers from different disciplines and many studies have been proposed in a wide variety of application domains, such as military surveillance systems, environmental monitoring, fault monitoring and distributed smart cameras in the last decade. In a wireless sensor network, a large number of sensors can be deployed to monitor target areas and autonomously collect sensor data. This produces a large amount of raw data that needs to be stored, processe...
