To enhance video surveillance systems, multi-modal sensor integration can be a successful strategy. In this work, a computer vision system able to detect and track people from multiple cameras is integrated with a wireless sensor network mounting PIR (Passive InfraRed) sensors. The two subsystems are briefly described and possible cases in which computer vision algorithms are likely to fail are discussed. Then, simple but reliable outputs from the PIR sensor nodes are exploited to improve the… CONTINUE READING
