CONGRESO Sensory Processing Optimization in a Smart Device


In a distributed control system, where client nodes receive data from distributed sensors in other nodes, it might happen that the same operation about data from a sensor is replicated in different nodes. For that reason, being able to do the preprocessing of sensory data in the source node, allows optimizing the client nodes resources. In case of distributing sensory data using services, the sensors that allow that pre-processing are known as smart devices. This article shows a smart device as part of a distributed system that allows to optimize resources in the client nodes. The smart device presented in this is based in a Red, Green, Blue, Depth (RGB-D) sensor. To manage the different acquisitions of the RGB-D it is used a organized processes structure (called plugins) in a topology. The interface of that topology of plugins is named Smart Plugin Topology (SPT) and allows creating plugin combinations, which provides the smart sensor with the ability of doing suitable pre-processing for each client, optimizing the server and local resources of the smart sensor.
