This study is focused on a new approach for addressing the trade-off between accuracy and energy-efficiency of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks. Although a number of previous studies have focused on various special topics in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks in detail, to best of our knowledge, none presents a fuzzy multi-modal data fusion system, which is light-weight and provides a high accuracy ratio. Especially, multi-modal data fusion targeting surveillance applications make it inevitable to work within a multi-level hierarchical framework. In this study, we primarily focus on accuracy and efficiency by utilizing such a framework. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed framework, a set of experiments is conducted and obtained results are presented.

A Fusion-Based Framework for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks in Surveillance Applications
Yazici, Adnan; Koyuncu, Murat; Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yilmaz, Turgay (2019-01-01)
Multimedia sensors enable monitoring applications to obtain more accurate and detailed information. However, the development of efficient and lightweight solutions for managing data traffic over wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) has become vital because of the excessive volume of data produced by multimedia sensors. As part of this motivation, this paper proposes a fusion-based WMSN framework that reduces the amount of data to be transmitted over the network by intra-node processing. This framewor...
A Survey on Multipath Routing Protocols for QoS Assurances in Real-Time Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Rizzo, Hussain; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-01-01)
The vision of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) is to provide real-time multimedia applications using wireless sensors deployed for long-term usage. Quality of service assurances for both best effort data and real-time multimedia applications introduced new challenges in prioritizing multipath routing protocols in WMSNs. Multipath routing approaches with multiple constraints have received considerable research interest. In this paper, a comprehensive survey of both best effort data and real-time m...
An Analysis for the Correlation of Coverage and Spatial Resolution for Wireless Sensor Networks
Tomur, Emrah; Erten, Y. Murat (2007-12-10)
In this study, we investigate the interactions between coverage and spatial resolution for cluster-based wireless sensor networks (WSN). We present an approximate probabilistic analysis for the mentioned correlation and verify this analysis by simulation. Our analysis includes the k-coverage case.
An energy aware fuzzy approach to unequal clustering in wireless sensor networks
Bagci, Hakan; Yazıcı, Adnan (2013-04-01)
In order to gather information more efficiently in terms of energy consumption, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are partitioned into clusters. In clustered WSNs, each sensor node sends its collected data to the head of the cluster that it belongs to. The cluster-heads are responsible for aggregating the collected data and forwarding it to the base station through other cluster-heads in the network. This leads to a situation known as the hot spots problem where cluster-heads that are closer to the base stati...
Finding sensing coverage and breach paths in wireless sensor networks
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (2004-01-01)
Most of the recent studies on wireless sensor networks deal with the communication coverage. However, for the surveillance wireless sensor networks, sensing coverage is an open research area. In this paper, the sensing coverage area of surveillance wireless sensor networks is studied. The sensing coverage is determined by applying Neyman-Pearson Detection Model and Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm is applied to find the weakest breach path. Although individually not enough, breach probability is an approp...
