The product Idea/Overview
It is proposed to develop an IP(Internet Protocol)
based Distributed smart camera system which can be
adapted to monitor vivid environments of Agriculture
and Wild life to accomplish the goal of remotely
monitoring and managing the safety and security in a
It offers the benefits such as remote access, flexibility
in design, scalability, and ease of use.
Block diagram showing the system
•Various cameras are kept to
enclose the entire area
under surveillance which
has their own separate IP
•These cameras are under
the home network i.e. all are
connected to the
through the router.
• This system can be
accessed from any other
place using PC, tablet or
Features of the system
i. Easy, future-proof integration
ii. Scalability and flexibility
iv. Distributed intelligence
v. Remote accessibility
vi. Easy, reliable installation

Having an IP video system allows the farm owner to
connect remotely to the cameras and view live or recorded
surveillance footage from his laptop, smart phone, or tablet
The ability to connect remotely to the surveillance system
gives the owner valuable peace of mind while travelling,
since he can now monitor his farm, equipment, and
operations from anywhere in the world with an Internet or
Having secure wireless internet access can also provide
many benefits beyond surveillance to a modern day
agricultural and wildlife monitoring.
In Agricultural farm
This project is mainly concerned with farming application.
In Forest : Security, wildlife tracking
In any remote area which require regular
visit and care.
Monitor for intruders – Strategically placed farm security
cameras will capture images of anyone entering the property. This
coverage helps to ensure that only authorized workers gain access to
the farm and its facilities.
Protect water supplies – A well-protected water supply is
critical to agricultural operations. Farm security cameras can play an
important role in protecting this highly-sensitive area.
Prevent break - ins – Implementing farm security cameras
around your property can deter break ins. For those intruders who look
past the cameras, the surveillance footage can capture them in the act.
Deter theft – Farm security cameras in areas such as holding pens,
calving pens, tool shops, and gates will help to prevent thieves from
stealing animals and equipment.
Monitor daily operations – Security cameras can also ensure
that daily operations such as milking and feeding run smoothly.
Employee monitoring – Video surveillance can be used to
monitor employee behaviour so that critical farm operations are
properly carried out.
Remote playback and monitoring – With an IP-based
surveillance system, farm owners can monitor their property remotely.
Footage can be stored digitally and easily searched in cases requiring

Application on: Home Caring- baby, elder, pets
Possible Innovation at the later stage
Image/Video attributes can be extracted and
transmitted based on the requirements with the help
of FPGA programming.
We can build online video surveillance not only for the
farming application but also for home, office,
playground, college etc with customized design at low
Different Systems can be networked.
Adding cameras to the existing network doesn’t
require additional infrastructure.
Changing camera location doesn’t require additional
infrastructure work and cost.
The market for video surveillance as a service is, however,
facing challenges with respect to the high infrastructure
cost, this product can be the best solution for this problem.
Due to wireless system and ease of installation, this will be
the perfect product compared to expensive video
High demand for remote monitoring in agriculture sector
High demand for remote monitoring in wild life.
System can be used for any remote monitoring
Mobile/Tablet Apps can be developed for attracting the

Using IP camera based system owners can know the condition
of their property from remote locations and also keep records.
It is definitely an efficient surveillance system at farm to
It will be a cost effective product with broader market
possibilities such as farming, forest security, home security,
Proposed product provides solution in a wireless, optionally
handheld manner with larger scalability when compared to
IP camera is a combination of a
camera and a computer. The
camera can be connected
directly to the network. It has
built-in software for a web
server, FTP server and e-mail
client. Some advanced versions
support motion detection and
alarm input/output ports.
Difference between IP and CCTV Camera
Analog CCTV systems connect to a DVR (digital video
recorder) using coax cables and BNC connectors (not
IP Cameras connect directly to an existing Ethernet
network. This connection could be wired or wireless and
they can be accessed from anywhere.
A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated
circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a
designer after manufacturing—hence "field-
programmable". The FPGA configuration is generally
specified using a hardware description language (HDL).
Given the importance of digital image processing and the
significance of their implementations on hardware to achieve
better performance, this work addresses implementation of
image processing algorithms like median filter, morphological,
convolution and smoothing operation and edge detection on
FPGA using VHDL language.
