The integrated monitoring has become an important approach for investigation, detection, and policy decision in many fields. Unfortunately, current monitoring systems are commonly developed by different organizations using specific technologies and platforms, bringing a lot of difficulties for the seamless integration and unified access. To address the aforementioned problem, a novel integrated monitoring architecture based on Web services is proposed, which offers a universal client for accessing different monitoring systems and then facilitates system integration under the heterogeneous environment. By analyzing the characters of sensor-network-based monitoring applications, this paper presents the whole architecture design which consists of the standardized Web services, management subsystem, configuration subsystem, local monitoring subsystem, and integration monitoring subsystem. Through the integration architecture, the distributed isomerous monitoring systems can be accessed in a unified user interface if owning the corresponding ranking. In order to validate the proposed architecture, three different monitoring systems are constructed and integrated. The results show that the seamless system integration is achieved and the supervisory efficiency is improved remarkably.
