Abstract

To provide energy-efficient (i.e., longer lifetime of sensors) and network-friendly (i.e., reducing network traffic) field sensing, we propose an edge-centric field monitoring system which applies efficient sensors and camera control. The proposed system detects conditions in a monitoring area and controls sensing frequency (sampling rate) of sensors, and capture rate and encoding rate of surveillance cameras, according to the detected conditions. In addition, the system applies a Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) platform to provide fast feedback control to the sensors and cameras. In performance evaluations, we assume that the monitoring target is landslide detection and create a miniature 'artificial landslide generation' environment in our laboratory. By using the environment, we evaluate the system performance, and evaluation results indicate that the proposed system can reduce network traffic and save energy consumption efficiently.
