I joined the working group Computer Systems & Telematics (CST) at the Institute of Computer Science, Freie Universität Berlin in September 2009. I have completed my Diplom in Communication and Information Technology at the Technische Universität Berlin.
AVS-Extrem is a use case for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) focused on collaborative, in-network data processing. The goal is to develop a distributed event detection system that can reliably report security relevant incidents (e.g. a person climbing over a fence and accessing restricted areas) to a base station. The vision is that through cooperation of many sensor nodes the accuracy of event detection can be greatly improved, while at the same time saving energy by reducing multi-hop communication with the base station. More information about the AVS-Extreme project is available on the AVS-Extreme homepage.
