This paper introduces a camera network capable of automatically learning proactive control strategies that enable a set of active pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras, supported by wide-FOV passive cameras, to provide persistent coverage of the scene. When a situation is encountered for the first time, a reasoning module performs PTZ camera assignments and handoffs. The results of this reasoning exercise are 1) generalized so as to be applicable to many other similar situations and 2) stored in a… CONTINUE READING
