Social distancing has been suggested as one of the most effective measures to break the chain of viral transmission in the current COVID-19 pandemic. We herein describe a computer vision-based AI-assisted solution to aid compliance with social distancing norms. The solution consists of modules to detect and track people and to identify distance violations. It provides the flexibility to choose between a tool-based mode or an automated mode of camera calibration, making the latter suitable for…

A Review on Pedestrian & Social Distancing Rule Violation Detection

Various researches that automatically detected the social distancing specially in public places with various computer vision techniques are surveyed, and techniques along with their flaws are discussed.

Recovering 3D from 2D Image Points (Calibrated Camera Approach for Surveillance)

This paper proposes a new methodology to obtain 3D information of the objects in the scene, which is suitable for surveillance applications and uses a calibrated single camera under an assumption that object-of-interest is standing on (known)ground plane.

A Comprehensive Analysis of Privacy Protection Techniques Developed for COVID-19 Pandemic

An extensive review of the PPTs that have been recently proposed to address the diverse privacy requirements/concerns stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the paradigm shifts in personal data handling brought on by this pandemic.



A Vision-Based Social Distancing and Critical Density Detection System for COVID-19

An active surveillance system to slow the spread of COVID-19 by warning individuals in a region-of-interest by defining a novel critical social density value and showing that the chance of SD violation occurrence can be held near zero if the pedestrian density is kept under this value.

Monitoring COVID-19 social distancing with person detection and tracking via fine-tuned YOLO v3 and Deepsort techniques

A deep learning based framework for automating the task of monitoring social distancing using surveillance video and utilizes the YOLO v3 object detection model to segregate humans from the background and Deepsort approach to track the identified people with the help of bounding boxes and assigned IDs.

The Visual Social Distancing Problem

The Visual Social Distancing problem is introduced, defined as the automatic estimation of the inter-personal distance from an image, and the characterization of related people aggregations, and indicates a path to research new Computer Vision methods that can possibly provide a solution to such problem.

Automatic Calibration of Stationary Surveillance Cameras in the Wild

This paper presents the first combination of several existing components of calibration systems from literature, including a fully automatic camera calibration algorithm for monocular stationary surveillance cameras, and introduces novel pre- and post-processing stages that improve estimation of the horizon line and the vertical vanishing point.

Using Computer Vision to enhance Safety of Workforce in Manufacturing in a Post COVID World

An efficient and economic approach of using AI to create a safe environment in a manufacturing setup using computer vision on CCTV feeds to monitor worker activity and detect violations which trigger real time voice alerts on the shop floor is described.

Density-aware person detection and tracking in crowds

This work addresses the problem of person detection and tracking in crowded video scenes by exploring constraints imposed by the crowd density and formulate person detection as the optimization of a joint energy function combining crowd density estimation and the localization of individual people.

Pedestrian Detection: The Elephant In The Room

This study finds that existing state-of-the-art pedestrian detectors generalize poorly from one dataset to another, and illustrates that diverse and dense datasets, collected by crawling the web, serve to be an efficient source of pre-training for pedestrian detection.

Human Pose Estimation for Real-World Crowded Scenarios

This work explores methods to optimize pose estimation for human crowds, focusing on challenges introduced with larger scale crowds like people in close proximity to each other, mutual occlusions, and partial visibility of people due to the environment.

Privacy-Protective-GAN for Privacy Preserving Face De-Identification

This paper proposes a new framework called Privacy-Protective-GAN (PP-GAN) that adapts GAN (generative adversarial network) with novel verificator and regulator modules specially designed for the face de-identification problem to ensure generating de-identified output with retained structure similarity according to a single input.

Stable multi-target tracking in real-time surveillance video

This work presents a multi-target tracking system that is designed specifically for the provision of stable and accurate head location estimates and uses a more principled approach based on a Minimal Description Length (MDL) objective which accurately models the affinity between observations.
