Optimal deployment of a distributed IoT acoustic surveillance system
International Journal of Sensor Networks
In this study, the deployment of distributed Internet of Things (IoT) acoustic sensors using a real-time scenario is rigorously analysed. Simulation results indicate that in an ideal situation, with no obstacles, the proposed sensor count remained constant with a 99% efficiency, even with an increase in the count of dangerous events. We observed a rise in the count of sensors with the increase in obstacles and the total area under study. Our study also confirms that any increment beyond the obtained optimal count of the sensors will not necessarily affect efficiency. Moreover, the total detection rate verified that the optimal placement of the acoustic sensors requires fewer sensors than any randomly placed sensors, to achieve a 99% efficiency. To our knowledge, the proposed research work in this paper specific to acoustic surveillance using a non-traditional IoT cloud architecture has not been previously investigated in the literature.
