This paper presents an overview of the Visual Privacy Task (VPT) of MediaEval 2014, its objectives, related dataset, and evaluation approaches. Participants in this task were required to implement a privacy filter or a combination of filters to protect various personal information regions in video sequences as provided. The challenge was to achieve an(More)
—The presented work is motivated by the problem of local motion estimation via robust regression with linear models. In order to increase the robustness of the motion estimates we propose a novel Robust Local Optical Flow approach based on a modified Hampel estimator. We show the deficiencies of the least squares estimator used by the standard KLT tracker(More)
This paper describes a robust method for the local optical flow estimation and the KLT feature tracking performed on the GPU. Therefore we present an estimator based on the í µí°¿ 2 norm with robust characteristics. In order to increase the robustness at discontinuities we propose a strategy to adapt the used region size. The GPU implementation of our(More)
In this paper we present a decentralized surveillance network composed of IP video cameras, analysis devices and a central node which collects information and displays it in a 3D model of the complete area. The exchange of information between all components in the surveillance network takes place according to the ONVIF specification, therefore ensuring(More)
In this paper we present an approach for the efficient computation of optical flow fields in real-time and provide implementation details. Proposing a modification of the popular Lucas-Kanade energy functional based on integral projections allows us to speed up the method notably. We show the potential of this method which can compute dense flow fields of(More)
We propose a new methodology for crowd analysis by introducing the concept of Multi-Person Density. Using a state-of-the-art feature tracking algorithm, representative low-level features and their long-term motion information are extracted and combined into a human detection model. In contrast to previously proposed techniques, the proposed method takes(More)
Detecting people carrying objects is a commonly formulated problem which results can be used as a first step in order to monitor interactions between people and objects in computer vision applications. In this paper we propose a novel method for this task. By using gray-value information instead of the contours obtained by a segmentation process we build up(More)
