[Seminar] Visual sensor networks – prof. Bernhard Rinner
On Tuesday December 2nd, 2014, prof. Bernhard Rinner (Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems – Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, Austria) will give a seminar entitled ” Visual sensor networks”.
Time: 8:30 – 12:30
Venue: University of Udine, via delle Scienze 206 (Rizzi) – Aula 42 (teledidattica: Lab6, CePo)
Abstract: Networks of cameras are currently pervading into our everyday life—ranging from the scale of countries and cities, over buildings down to individual persons. As the technology for smart camera networks advances, we expect to see many new applications open up. In this seminar I will present an overview of sensor network research project at the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems. In particular, I will talk about resource reconfiguration in visual sensor networks, aerial networks composed by unmanned aerial vehicles as well as security and privacy protection
