Technological advances in sensor manufacture, communication, and computing are stimulating the development of new applications that are transforming traditional vision systems into pervasive intelligent camera networks. The analysis of visual cues in multi-camera networks enables a wide range of applications, from smart home and office automation to large area surveillance and traffic surveillance. While dense camera networks - in which most cameras have large overlapping fields of view - are well…

Inference of non-overlapping camera network topology by measuring statistical dependence
TLDR
An approach for inferring the topology of a camera network by measuring statistical dependence between observations in different cameras is presented, accomplished by non-parametric estimates of statistical dependence and Bayesian integration of the unknown correspondence.
Tracking across multiple cameras with disjoint views
TLDR
This work presents a novel approach for establishing object correspondence across non-overlapping cameras, which exploits the redundance in paths that people and cars tend to follow, e.g. roads, walk-ways or corridors, by using motion trends and appearance of objects, to establish correspondence.
