This study presents an open and interoperable maritime surveillance framework with multimodal sensor networks and an automated decision-making. The intention is to improve sea-border control, plugging the gaps in the maritime security with interoperability solutions and have wide-area situational awareness, thus particular reducing the number of illegal immigrants crossing sea borders in small boats, with a cost-effective approach. In this paper initial results are presented. This research is a part of a European project supported by ITEA2, Eureka Cluster Programme (RECONSURVE Project, no: ITEA2 09036).

An energy efficient hierarchical approach using multimedia and scalar sensors for emergency services
Kızılkaya, Burak; Ever, Enver; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-7)
Recently, environment monitoring and detection systems became more accessible with the help of IoT applications. Furthermore, connecting smart devices makes monitoring applications more accurate and reliable. On the other hand, optimizing the energy requirement of smart sensors especially while transmitting data has always been very important, and there are different applications to create energy efficient IoT systems. Detailed analysis of lifetimes of various types of sensors (survival analysis) has theref...
Interoperability Profiles for Disaster Management and Maritime Surveillance
Gencturk, Mert; Duro, Refiz; Kabak, Yildiray; Bozic, Bojan; Kahveci, Kubilay; Yilmaz, Burcu (2015-11-26)
Nowadays, many different Command and Control (C2) Systems and Sensor order to manage disasters effectively and achieve powerful surveillance, it is essential for C2 and Sensor Systems to cooperate and exchange timely available, reliable and intelligible information. Although globally accepted standards are used commonly in C2 and Sensor domains, there is no single specification of using these standards together for cooperation of disparate systems, which creates a crucial interoperability challenge. To addr...
Intelligent student assessment and coaching interface to web-based education-oriented intelligent experimentation on robot supported laboratory set-ups
Motuk, Halil Erdem; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
This thesis presents a framework for an intelligent interface for the access of robotsupported remote laboratories through the Internet. The framework is composed of the student assessment and coaching system, the experimentation scenario, and the associated graphical user interface. Student assessment and coaching system is the main feature of a successful intelligent interface for use during remote experimentation with a robot-supported laboratory setup. The system has a modular structure employing artifi...
A cross-layer protocol for wireless sensor networks
Akyildiz, Ian F.; Vuran, Mehmet C.; Akan, Ozgur B. (2006-03-24)
Severe energy constraints of battery-powered sensor nodes necessitate energy-efficient communication protocols in order to fulfill application objectives of wireless sensor networks (WSN). However, the vast majority of the existing solutions are based on classical layered protocols approach. It is much more resource-efficient to have a unified scheme which melts common protocol layer functionalities into a cross-layer module for resource-constrained sensor nodes. To the best of our knowledge, to date, there...
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...
