  • Journal Image
    Journal Scope:

    Quarterly published in print and online ‘Inventi Rapid/Impact: Distributed Sensor Networks’ publishes high quality unpublished as well as high impact pre-published research and reviews catering to the needs of researchers and professional engineers. The journal deals with the theory and experimentation aspects of sensor networks in an interdisciplinary manner and covers many fields such as wireless networks and communications, protocols, distributed algorithms, signal processing, embedded systems, and information management.

  • ROBUST ESTIMATION FUSION IN WIRELESS SENOR NETWORKS WITH OUTLIERS AND CORRELATED NOISES
    Yan Zhou, Dongli Wang, Tingrui Pei, Shujuan Tian    Download Full Text

    This paper addresses the problem of estimation fusion in a distributed wireless sensor network (WSN) under the following conditions: (i) sensor noises are contaminated by outliers or gross errors; (ii) process noise and sensor noises are correlated; (iii) cross-correlation among local estimates is unknown. First, to attack the correlation and outliers, a correlated robustKalman filtering (coR2KF) ...

  • TOWARDS AN ENVIRONMENTAL MEASUREMENT CLOUD: DELIVERING POLLUTION AWARENESS TO THE PUBLIC
    Federico Dominguez, Nguyen The Cuong, Dimitri Cariolaro, Abdellah Touhafi, Kris Steenhaut, Samuel Dauwe,Bart Dhoedt, Dick Botteldooren    Download Full Text

    Geosensor networks and sensor webs are two technologies widely used for determining our exposure to pollution levels and ensuring that this information is publicly available. However, most of these networks are independent from each other and often designed for specific domains, hindering the integration of sensor data from different sources. We contributed to the integration of several environmen...

  • MULTIPLE WIDE TABLES WITH VERTICAL SCALABILITY IN MULTITENANT SENSOR CLOUD SYSTEMS
    Kun Ma, Bo Yang    Download Full Text

    Software-as-a-service (SaaS) has emerged as a new computing paradigm to provide reliable software on demand. With such an inspiring motivation, sensor cloud system can benefit from this infrastructure. Generally, sharing database and schema is the most commonly used data storage model in the cloud. However, the data storage of tenants in the cloud is approaching schema null and evolution issues. T...

  • FROM SMART CAMERA TO SMARTHUB: EMBRACING CLOUD FOR VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
    Mukesh Kumar Saini, Pradeep K Atrey, Abdulmotaleb El Saddik    Download Full Text

    Smart cameras were conceived to provide scalable solutions to automatic video analysis applications, such as surveillance and monitoring. Since then, many algorithms and system architectures have been proposed, which use smart cameras to distribute functionality and save bandwidth. Still, smart cameras are rarely used in commercial systems and real installations. In this paper, we investigate the ...

  • AN EFFICIENT METHOD FOR AUTOMATIC VIDEO ANNOTATION AND RETRIEVAL IN VISUAL SENSOR NETWORKS
    Jiangfan Feng, Wenwen Zhou    Download Full Text

    Automatic video annotation has become an important issue in visual sensor networks, due to the existence of a semantic gap. Although it has been studied extensively, semantic representation of visual information is not well understood. To address the problem of pattern classification in video annotation, this paper proposes a discriminative constraint to find a solution to approach the sparse repr...
