AbstractA wireless sensor network (WSN) is a powerful unattended distributed measurement system, which is widely used in target surveillance because of its outstanding performance in distributed sensing and signal processing. This paper introduces a multiview visual-target-surveillance system in WSN, which can autonomously implement target classification and tracking with collaborative online learning and localization. The proposed system is a hybrid system of single-node and multinode fusion. It is constructed on a peer-to-peer (P2P)-based computing paradigm and consists of some simple but feasible methods for target detection and feature extraction. Importantly, a support-vector-machine-based semisupervised learning method is used to achieve online classifier learning with only unlabeled samples. To reduce the energy consumption and increase the accuracy, a novel progressive data-fusion paradigm is proposed for online learning and localization, where a feasible routing method is adopted to implement information transmission with the tradeoff between performance and cost. Experiment results verify that the proposed surveillance system is an effective, energy-efficient, and robust system for real-world application. Furthermore, the P2P-based progressive data-fusion paradigm can improve the energy efficiency and robustness of target surveillance.

Hierarchical wireless multimedia sensor networks for collaborative hybrid semi-supervised classifier learningWang, Xue; Wang, Sheng; Bi, Daowei; Ding, Liang (MOLECULAR DIVERSITY PRESERVATION INTBASELMATTHAEUSSTRASSE 11, CH-4057 BASEL, SWITZERLAND, 2010-05-10)Wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSN) have recently emerged as one of the most important technologies, driven by the powerful multimedia signal acquisition and processing abilities. Target classification is an important research issue addressed in WMSN, which has strict requirement in robustness, quickness and accuracy. This paper proposes a collaborative semi- supervised classifier learning algorithm to achieve durative online learning for support vector machine (SVM) based robust target classification. The proposed algorithm incrementally carries out the semi- supervised classifier learning process in hierarchical WMSN, with the collaboration of multiple sensor nodes in a hybrid computing paradigm. For decreasing the energy consumption and improving the performance, some metrics are introduced to evaluate the effectiveness of the samples in specific sensor nodes, and a sensor node selection strategy is also proposed to reduce the impact of inevitable missing detection and false detection. With the ant optimization routing, the learning process is implemented with the selected sensor nodes, which can decrease the energy consumption. Experimental results demonstrate that the collaborative hybrid semisupervised classifier learning algorithm can effectively implement target classification in hierarchical WMSN. It has outstanding performance in terms of energy efficiency and time cost, which verifies the effectiveness of the sensor nodes selection and ant optimization routing.
Distance Education and Community Learning Networks linked by a Library of CultureSantiago, Joseph A (DigitalCommons@URI, 2011-02-14)Humans are relational beings with their modeled behavior as practical examples of cultural routines that they hear, see, read, and assemble on their own from communal pieces of information to answer the needs of their everyday lives (Bandura, & Jeffrey, 1973). Yet few researchers have looked at the differing synthesis of culture and generally assume that others share similar ideas/values that lead to particular events and worldviews (Lillard, p.5 1998). Informational and cultural contact zones can be created to support CLNs, universities, and individuals in a variety of roles to encourage their interactions so they might design, and challenge the fundamentals of these programs and seek to better cooperation amongst the public itself (Tremmel, 2000). By increasing communication and collaboration of educational systems throughout the community will begin to raise the standard of living for all people (Bohn, & Schmidt, 2008). This will begin to draw people out from the digital divide and increase the access of technology and information available to all people with the community. Utilizing CLNs to support and further education will allow an interconnected web of assessments, standards, and cooperative efforts that has the potential of increasing democracy by empowering people from their communities.
