Video Analysis

Recently, automated visual surveillance systems to observe certain areas are becoming more important in the research field of computer vision. Conventional surveillance systems are already installed in many areas ranging from traffic surveillance to security relevant scenarios.
However, these systems present limitations making them unsuitable in many situations. On the one hand, the systems archive huge volumes of video for eventual offline human inspection. On the other hand, security areas have to be monitored by human operators, located in a control room containing a bank of screens streaming live video from each camera, in order for the system to be effective.
PRIP’s contribution to visual surveillance is in the area of image sequence analysis focusing on the topics motion detection, object tracking and scene understanding:
