Design, Development, and Implementation of a Hybrid Wireless Sensor Network system named “PANCHENDRIYA”, with multi-sensing and early warning capabilities by integrating five types of sensors: Geophones, Hydrophones, Microphones, Infrared sensors and Camera sensors. Geophones used to detect the presence of human intruders in flat border regions, Hydrophones to detect human intruders crossing the river or pond, Microphones to detect the human intruder movements in dry leaves areas, Infrared sensors to detect human intrusions across the border regions and finally Camera sensors for efficient border surveillance and intruder detection. The proposed multi-sensing system is capable to detect human intrusions in the above-mentioned border scenarios and provides early warning to the central monitoring station.

Problem

Terrorists and intruders are disturbing the peace and harmony of the nation. Traditional border patrol systems required a huge number of military persons, high-tech devices and high-cost camera surveillance systems. High false alarm rate and line of sight constraints are the problems encountered while using any of these techniques. There is a lack of system with multi-sensing capabilities for a human intruder detection in flat border regions, river or pond crossings, and dry leaves areas.

}

Solution

There is a need in developing a multi-sensing system that coordinates various technologies to detect the human intrusion in the three commonly observed border scenarios: flat border regions, river or pond crossings, and dry leaves areas with improved system accuracy and early warning capabilities.

Target Beneficiaries

Army, Military Force

Mission and Vision

Development of an affordable border patrol system using Hybrid Wireless Sensor Network incorporated with multi-sensing capabilities for efficient border surveillance and intruder detection to solve the challenges faced by the military forces today, specifically by providing extendable and adaptable communication and connectivity in border areas.

Competitive Advantage

All governments have demonstrated the need for a good and efficient surveillance system to control the risks of intrusion on borders either for unauthorized importation of goods or for terrorist actions. India is facing cross border terrorism and ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, which have presently disturbed peace in the subcontinent. Traditional border patrol systems required a huge number of military persons, high-tech devices and high-cost camera surveillance systems. High false alarm rate and line of sight constraints are the problems encountered while using any of these techniques. These incidents will turn to the need of a multi-sensing system with less human involvement for efficient detection, tracking of human intruders and to provide early warning to the central monitoring station after detecting any kind of intrusion by coordinating various technologies.

Planned Goals and Milestones

The current system can be enhanced by incorporating various Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and systems, which keep track off human intruder movements to provide valuable insights as well as potentially preventing intrusions by preemptively identifying the intruder presence.
