Topology inference for a vision-based sensor network

  title={Topology inference for a vision-based sensor network},

In this paper we describe a technique to infer the topology and connectivity information of a network of cameras based on observed motion in the environment. While the technique can use labels from reliable cameras systems, the algorithm is powerful enough to function using ambiguous tracking data. The method requires no prior knowledge of the relative locations of the cameras and operates under very weak environmental assumptions. Our approach stochastically samples plausible agent… CONTINUE READING
