Design and Implementation of Energy Efficient Tracking System

Project: Research

Project Details


The advancement in smart devices has brought to reality enormous applications such as continuous monitoring of patients, elderly persons, crowds, etc. Most of the existing work in this area is focusing on using the individual GPS information, which means high energy consumption and eventually inefficient and malfunctioning system. In this project, we are going to integrate the latest advancements in tracking people techniques to an efficient and fair energy consumption among all participants while keep the quality of service (QoS) requirements by the tracking system as high as possible. To achieve this goal, we are going, first, to develop a framework for designing collaborative approaches to exchange information reliably among the system participants and the main servers. Then, considering the expected complexity and scalability issues inherited in optimal techniques, new heuristic algorithms supporting efficient energy consumption shall be developed and evaluated using simulations and analytical means. Finally, we shall test the proposed approaches via a representative testbed. The outcomes of this project are expected to serve well many sectors in the Kingdom and in particular during Hajj seasons where millions of pilgrims are visiting Makkah and Medina.
