Abstract [en]

In smart homes, it is essential to reliably detect events including water leakages. A control action, such as shutting the water pipes, relies on reliable event detection. In this demo, a wireless sensor network for detection and localization of events in smart homes is presented. The demo is based on novel distributed detection-estimation and localization algorithms. A graphical user interface to visualize in real-time the network status is developed. Upon a detected event, the user is alerted through a Twitter notification. In the experiments the false alarm probability is improved by 30% and the average relative localization error is 1.7%.
