Visual sensors are an indispensable prerequisite for those AmI environments that require a surveillance component. One practical issue concerns maximizing the operational longevity of such sensors as the operational lifetime of an AmI environment itself is dependent on that of its constituent components. In this paper, the intelligent agent paradigm is considered as a basis for managing a camera collective such that the conflicting demands of power usage optimization and system performance are reconciled.
