In current scenario, there are always impending threats from militants and terrorists within and out of a country. The sensor networks play a vital role in minimizing the loss of human lives in the event of usual calamity and artificial sabotage created by terrorists. The sensor networks can be successfully deployed in any difficult geographical terrains where manual round-the-clock surveillance is highly impossible. Energy aware routing is immensely helpful to sensor networks in the aspect of extending the life span of the WSNs. In this paper, an automatic suspected terror system based on wireless sensor networks is developed, which is designed for high-rise metro structure. In order to provide early extinguish of impending threats by putting any bomb, large numbers of detectors which periodically measure noise, smell, infringement, vibration, temperature concentration, unidentified stranger photo are deployed from major streets. Those scattered detectors report their monitoring information to the surveillance center via the self-organizing hierarchical intelligent wireless sensor networks (IWSN). Test results from it show that the automatic suspected terror system achieves the design requirements.
