Real-time image streaming over a low-bandwidth wireless camera network
Wark, Timothy J., Corke, P., Karlsson, J., Sikka, P., & Valencia, P. (2007) Real-time image streaming over a low-bandwidth wireless camera network. In Proceedings of the 2007 International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing, ISSNIP, Dec 3-6, Melbourne.
In this paper we describe the recent development of a low-bandwidth wireless camera sensor network. We propose a simple, yet effective, network architecture which allows multiple cameras to be connected to the network and synchronize their communication schedules. Image compression of greater than 90% is performed at each node running on a local DSP coprocessor, resulting in nodes using 1/8th the energy compared to streaming uncompressed images. We briefly introduce the Fleck wireless node and the DSP/camera sensor, and then outline the network architecture and compression algorithm. The system is able to stream color QVGA images over the network to a base station at up to 2 frames per second. Â© 2007 IEEE.
