Distributed Coordination of Mobile Visual Sensor Network for Boundary Tracking and Coverage Applications
In many applications, it is desirable to autonomously detect and
monitor an environmental region. Examples of such applications can be
monitoring oil spills, algal blooms, wild fire
spreading, temperature and salinity distribution in the ocean and
hazardous weather conditions such as hurricanes and tropical storms.
In this project, we develop the distributed algorithms to guide a set
of mobile visual sensors to detect the boundary and to cover the
entire region of interest. To ensure scalable and robust operation,
only local information is used.
The goal is to cover the target area in shortest time with minimal energy
consumption. We will both focus on theoretical development,
mathematical analysis as well as empirical studies by implementing the
algorithms on Monash University's Wireless Sensor and Robot Network
Laboratory's experimental testbed.
