Toward Ubiquitous Video-Based Cyber-Physical Systems
Source: City University
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is a new generation of engineered systems that integrate physical systems with the capability of networked computing and control. Real-time video capture and communication is expected to be an important function in many Cyber-Physical Systems that involve camera-equipped mobile phones. In this paper, the authors present AnySense, a network architecture that supports video communication between 3G phones and Internet hosts in Cyber-Physical Systems. AnySense implements transcoding of video streams between the Internet and circuit-switched 3G cellular networks, and is transparent to 3G service providers.
