There is a clear trend in camera networks toward enhanced functionality and flexibility, and a fixed static deployment is typically not sufficient to fulfill these increased requirements. Dynamic network reconfiguration helps to optimize the network performance to the currently required specific tasks while considering the available resources. Although several reconfiguration methods have been recently proposed, e.g., for maximizing the global scene coverage or maximizing the image quality of specific targets, there is a lack of a general framework highlighting the key components shared by all these systems. In this paper, we propose a reference framework for network reconfiguration and present a short survey of some of the most relevant state-of-the-art works in this field, showing how they can be reformulated in our framework. Finally, we discuss the main open research challenges in camera network reconfiguration.
