Abstract: This document summarizes findings from realistic tests performed in the participatory surveillance research project of 2012 aimed at enhancing an emergency exercise. The project experimented with the use of participatory surveillance components relying on built-in sensor/event data from user smartphones e.g. GPS, light, sound, movement, Wi-Fi, NFC scan, IP-based video surveillance. 14 users (4 females and 10 males) volunteered to capture events/samples either actively (i.e. voluntarily) or passively (i.e. with limited interaction and awareness). Participating smartphones remotely acquired image/sensor rich data of interest and sent them to the surveillance base station. NFC reading of personnel badge picture was used in the mobile identity verification application to test identity check on the fly against a picture taken with the smartphone without picture authentication in the control room server. The research aim was to consider component feasibility of participatory and IP-based video surveillance thereof assessing their complementary opportunities, as well as technological and legal challenges.
