Abstract

This paper presents a practical solution for the fence-line intrusion detection problem. The MEMS based sensor platform is introduced along with its WirelessHART networking capabilities. A Decentralized Sequential Hypothesis Testing algorithm is studied at the theoretical level before being applied to the problem at hand. Results from several deployments show 100% detection rates within one second of the intrusion. The system is presented as a viable replacement for much more expensive and less performant security systems.
