Video Anomaly Detection for Smart Surveillance

  title={Video Anomaly Detection for Smart Surveillance},
  author={Sijie Zhu and Chen Chen and Waqas Sultani},
In modern intelligent video surveillance systems, automatic anomaly detection through computer vision analytics plays a pivotal role which not only significantly increases monitoring efficiency but also reduces the burden on live monitoring. Anomalies in videos are broadly defined as events or activities that are unusual and signify irregular behavior. The goal of anomaly detection is to temporally or spatially localize the anomaly events in video sequences. Temporal localization (i.e…

Experimental results on surveillance videos show that the space-time MRF model robustly detects abnormal activities both in a local and global sense: not only does it accurately localize the atomic abnormal activities in a crowded video, but at the same time it captures the global-level abnormalities caused by irregular interactions between local activities.
