Abstract

Festivals, public parades, and sports events are a common happening that attract a large amount of people to one location at the same time. To improve the safety at such crowded events, the event organization could use static and mobile sensors that sense and detect situations which require the attention of the security personnel. Camera surveillance of large areas is traditionally a costly endeavour, requiring either a large camera infrastructure or a lot of manpower. However, presently consumer electronics have evolved to the point where quadrotor toys with cameras and wireless connectivity have become affordable. In the meantime, the same has happened with consumer-grade wireless routers. In this paper, we describe a demonstration of a scalable aerial surveillance solution using consumer off the shelf quadrotor drones and wireless routers to create an ad-hoc network based on optimized link state routing, extending the operational range of the drones.
