This paper presents the groundwork for a distributed network of collaborating, intelligent surveillance cameras, implemented with low-cost embedded microprocessor camera modules. Each camera trains a person detection classifier using the Winnow algorithm for unsupervised, online learning. Training examples are automatically extracted and labelled, and the classifier is then used to locate person instances. To improve detection performance, multiple cameras with overlapping fields of view… CONTINUE READING
