Distributed camera networks represent an emerging trend for the incorporation of pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras in next generation large-scale wireless surveillance systems. The adoption of PTZ cameras with dynamic field of view nature can increase the resolution of mobile targets and adapt the network coverage significantly. However, leverage these benefits calls for more configuration cost and sophisticated solutions. In this paper, the authors consider the specific problem of coverage problem in terms of configuration cost and coverage quality in PTZ camera networks.
