In many surveillance systems there is a requirement todetermine whether a given person of interest has alreadybeen observed over a network of cameras. This is the personre-identification problem. The human appearance obtainedin one camera is usually different from the ones obtained inanother camera. In order to re-identify people the humansignature should(More)
Human re-identification is defined as a requirement to determine whether a given individual has already appeared over a network of cameras. This problem is particularly hard by significant appearance changes across different camera views. In order to re-identify people a human signature should handle difference in illumination, pose and camera parameters.(More)
In many surveillance systems there is a requirement todetermine whether a given person of interest has alreadybeen observed over a network of cameras. This paperpresents two approaches for this person re-identificationproblem. In general the human appearance obtained in onecamera is usually different from the ones obtained in anothercamera. In order to(More)
This paper addresses the problem of appearance matching across disjoint camera views. Signi cant appearance changes, caused by variations in view angle, illumination and object pose, make the problem challenging. We propose to formulate the appearance matching problem as the task of learning a model that selects the most descriptive features for a speci c(More)
The methodology for finding the same individual in a network of cameras must deal with significant changes in appearance caused by variations in illumination, viewing angle and a person's pose. Re-identification requires solving two fundamental problems: (1) determining a distance measure between features extracted from different cameras that copes with(More)
Re-identifying people in a network of cameras requires an invariant human representation. State of the art algorithms are likely to fail in real-world scenarios due to serious perspective changes. Most of existing approaches focus on invariant and discriminative features, while ignoring the body alignment issue. In this paper we propose 3 methods for(More)
This paper introduces an image region descriptor and applies it to the problem of appearance matching. The proposed descriptor can be seen as a natural extension of covariance. Driven by recent studies in mathematical statistics related to Brownian motion, we design the Brownian descriptor. In contrast to the classical covariance descriptor, which measures(More)
The person re-identification problem is a well known retrieval task that requires finding a person of interest in a network of cameras. In a real-world scenario, state of the art algorithms are likely to fail due to serious perspective and pose changes as well as variations in lighting conditions across the camera network. The most effective approaches try(More)
This paper presents the methodology for the cost optimization of real-time applications, that are conformable to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model of cloud computing. We assume, that functions of applications are specified as a set of distributed echo algorithms with soft real-time constraints. Then our methodology schedules all tasks on(More)
