Urban environment monitoring needs a complex wireless sensor network architecture, which is capable to ensure maximum connectivity between the nodes of the network, to provide adequate throughput and to allow reduced response time, in order to react promptly to multiple threats. The architecture and data fusion strategies of such a network have to respond to specific guidelines, in order to be compliant with scenario requirements and to offer maximum performance in a number of different operating situations. URBEM (URBan Environment Monitoring) is a new concept solution for urban environment monitoring, which has the goal to respond to modern urban scenario requirements. The main characteristics of URBEM are: clustered architecture, multiplicity of sensors and heterogeneous data fusion.
