Design of an Intelligent Sensor Network for Building Security

The dissertation relates to the design of a smart sensor network for safeguarding building from chemical, biological and intruder attacks. This dissertation provides a logical level design combined with the architectures at different levels of hierarchy. The application of object technology is growing in the development of software, and in order to develop robust and maintainable complex systems, mastering object-oriented (O-O) analysis and design is important. The primary objective of this dissertation is to report on the experience of applying object-oriented modeling, analysis and design methodology to a real-world complex system represented by a smart sensor network for a building…..
