This paper describes a lightweight middleware agent framework (LAF) for coordinating a large array of computers with attached cameras to construct high resolution video-rate image sequences. Compared to existing camera middleware, LAF provides more than a remote sensor access API. The use of an agent framework allows reconfigurable and transparent access to cameras, as well as software agents capable of intelligent processing. It also eases maintenance by encouraging code reuse. Other features… CONTINUE READING
