This chapter focuses on the management and the application development of distributed smart camera systems by observing the more general point of view of embedded sensor networks. The proposed approach relies on a model-based software engineering concept which allows a more unified and simplified design. Basically, the model-based system development concept provides high-level system functions and facilities for generating platform-specific code. This chapter outlines how this framework allows the integration of models at different levels, e.g., for exploiting low-level sensor data as well as high-level knowledge-based models for detection, classification, and representation of high-level situations in specific use cases. The usefulness of the presented approach shall be demonstrated in a real-world scenario targeting safety and security surveillance in a public airport environment.
