Paper Abstract

A test bed to support research in collaborative sensing by means of energy-constrained, wireless networks is described. The test bed incorporates commercially available sensors and wireless networking technology, with the emphasis on providing a low cost, high-performance, easy to use development environment. The sensors comprising the baseline test bed, acoustic/seismic multimode sensors and panoramic color cameras, are described. A strategy for incorporating new sensors and deploying elements of the test bed to support field tests is described. Results of a field test conducted to demonstrate collaborative tracking, geolocation, and targeting of a tank are summarized. An example of motion detection and image extraction from a panoramic camera is presented.
