SAMuS: Service-oriented architecture for multi-sensor surveillance in smart homes

by Sofie Van Hoecke, Ruben Verborgh, Davy Van Deursen, and Rik Van de Walle

In this paper, the design of a service-oriented architecture for multi-sensor surveillance in smart homes is presented as an integrated solution enabling automatic deployment, dynamic selection and composition of sensors. Sensors are implemented as web-connected devices, with a uniform Web API. RESTdesc is used to describe the sensors and a novel solution is presented to automatically compose Web APIs that can be applied with existing Semantic Web reasoners. We evaluated the solution by building a smart Kinect sensor that is able to dynamically switch between IR and RGB and optimizing person detection by incorporating feedback from pressure sensors, as such demonstrating the collaboration among sensors to enhance detection of complex events. The performance results show that the platform scales for many Web APIs as composition time remains limited to a few hundred milliseconds in almost all cases.
