An Ubiquitous System for Monitoring of Motor Bike Base Patrol Troops in Insurgency Prone Area
The world has come under increased terrorists attack in recent times. In Nigeria the fight against Boko Haram terrorists has taken toll on both the armed forces and insurgents in terms of casualties. Traditional methods of gathering and processing information have yielded little success. In this work we propose a ubiquitous security system that monitors mobile troops on bikes and transmits reports to a control centre for immediate action if required. The system was implemented using Java, MySQL, JBOSS 4.2.2.GA Server, and macromedia Dreamweaver 8.0. Four experiments were carried out with the system and the results indicated a great measure of passing information between the mobile bike based agents and the central control command. The system is recommended for use because it serves as a good replacement or can complement the use of traditional methods of monitoring troops in an insurgent prone area. The physical implementation of the system will require sensory network devices that will detect the presence of metals, high noise level and a camera monitoring subsystem to detect the presence of insurgents.
