  • Written by experts in the field of wide are surveillance
  • Gives a comprehensive update on the building an intelligent camera in the area of detection systems and
  • Describes new algorithms for signal and imaging processing for image reconstruction
The book describes a system for visual surveillance using intelligent cameras. The camera uses robust techniques for detecting and tracking moving objects. The real time capture of the objects is then stored int he database. The tracking data stored in the database is analysed to study the camera view, detect and track objects, and study object behavior. These set of models provide a robust framework for coordinating the tracking of objects between overlapping and non-overlapping cameras, and recording the activity of objects detected by the system.
