With the proliferation of inexpensive cameras and the availability of high-speed wired and wireless networks, networks of distributed cameras are becoming an enabling technology for a broad range of interdisciplinary applications in domains such as public safety and security, manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare. Today’s live video processing systems on networks of distributed cameras, however, are designed for specific classes of applications. To provide a generic query processing platform for applications of distributed camera networks, we designed and implemented a new class of general purpose database management systems, the live video database management system (LVDBMS). We view networked video cameras as a special class of interconnected storage devices, and allow the user to formulate ad hoc queries over real-time live video feeds. In the first part of this dissertation, an Internet scale framework for sharing and dissemination of general sensor data is presented. This framework provides a platform for general sensor data to be published, searched, shared, and delivered across the Internet. The second part is the design and development of a Live Video Database Management System. LVDBMS allows users to easily focus on events of interest from a multitude of distributed video cameras by posing continuous queries on the live video streams. In the third part, a distributed in-memory database approach is proposed to enhance the LVDBMS with an important capability of tracking objects across cameras
