[ECE 453] Precise Network Node Locations - Need response from everyone

Hello everyone-

The network group has put together 3 different scenarios for where,
exactly, to put our cameras and thus network nodes along perimeter. Please
respond to me (bgarris@xxxxxxxxxxx) with your 1st and 2nd picks, so I can
finalize it and so that everyone can keep moving ahead with the project.

Scenario 1: Small area (Jervey Gym to C2/R3 parking lots, little/no gaps in
            surveillance
   2 fixed cameras (pointing opposite directions) and 1 PTZ on A1 lightpole
       [corner of entrance to football practice fields]
   1 fixed camera (pointing down hill) and 1 PTZ on corner of Jervey Gym
   1 fixed camera (direction undetermined yet) and 1 PTZ on C36 lightpole
       [entrance to C2/R3 parking lots]

   Notes: small, simple mesh - adequate number of intersections, fewer nodes
          = fewer enclosures, etc.
          Might be simplest and easiest

Scenario 2: Medium area (Jervey Gym to Lee Hall (C4 Parking Lot), some gaps
            in surveillance
   1 fixed cam & 1 PTZ on A1 lightpole
       [corner of entrance to football practice fields]
   1 fixed cam & 1 PTZ on C36 lightpole
       [entrance to C2/R3 parking lots]
   1 fixed cam on C39
       [corner w/ Williamson Rd]
   1 PTZ on G258
       [in between Williamson Rd and Lee Hall Parking Lot]
   1 fixed cam on G263
       [entrance to Lee Hall Parking Lot]

    Notes: some gaps to deal with in programming, etc., more enclosures to
           fabricate, mount, etc., medium mesh
           Feasible but more work

Scenario 3: Large area (Jervey Gym to Cherry Rd. intersection), multiple
            large gaps in surveillance
    all 7 cameras on different light poles all along perimeter

    Notes: large gaps in surveillance (trees, etc.), large mesh, may have
           issues attenuating signals, but would cover a long straight
           stretch of road. Also more intersections


PLEASE send me your responses/choices ASAP, as well as any
notes/concerns/helpful or critical input you may have.

Thanks guys,
