SmartSAM : A Multisensor Network Based Framework for Video Surveillance and Monitoring

  title={SmartSAM : A Multisensor Network Based Framework for Video Surveillance and Monitoring},
  author={Guna Seetharaman and S. Sitharama Iyengar},
A network of multi modal sensors with distributed and embedded computations is considered for a video surveillance and monitoring application. Practical factors limiting the video surveillance of large areas are highlighted. A network of line-of-sight sensors and mobile-agents based computations are proposed to increase the effectiveness. CMOS digital cameras in which both sampling and quantization occur on the sensor focal plane are more suitable for this application. These cameras operate at… 
A Line-of-Sight Sensor Network for Wide Area Video Surveillance: Simulation and Evaluation
The research described in this thesis shows that while the Line-of-Sight sensor cannot monitor areas with the ubiquity of video cameras alone, the combined network produces substantially fewer false alarms and superior location precision for numerous moving people than video.
An analytical framework for soft and hard data fusion: a dempster-shafer belief theoretic approach
A complete theoretical development of the proposed consensus strategy with rigorous proofs is provided and a graphical procedure and its associated message passing scheme for efficient computation of the conditionals, along with the theoretical bounds for computational costs are proposed.


The Robust Estimation of Multiple Motions: Parametric and Piecewise-Smooth Flow Fields
A framework based on robust estimation is presented that addresses violations of the brightness constancy and spatial smoothness assumptions caused by multiple motions of optical flow, and is applied to standard formulations of the optical flow problem thus reducing their sensitivity to violations of their underlying assumptions.

Performance of optical flow techniques
These comparisons are primarily empirical, and concentrate on the accuracy, reliability, and density of the velocity measurements; they show that performance can differ significantly among the techniques the authors implemented.
Closed-form connectivity-preserving solutions for motion compensation using 2-D meshes
Close-form, overdetermined solutions for least squares estimation of affine motion parameters for a triangular mesh, which preserve mesh-connectivity using patch-based or node-based connectivity constraints are presented.
