Abnormal Crowd Behavior Detection Using Novel Optical Flow-Based Features

In this paper, we propose a novel optical flow based features for abnormal crowd behaviour detection. The proposed feature is mainly based on the angle difference computed between the optical flow vectors in the current frame and in the previous frame at each pixel location. The angle difference information is also combined with the optical flow magnitude to produce new, effective and direction invariant event features. A one-class SVM is utilized to learn normal crowd behavior. If a test sample deviates significantly from the normal behavior, it is detected as abnormal crowd behavior. Although there are many optical flow based features for crowd behaviour analysis, this is the first time the angle difference between optical flow vectors in the current frame and in the previous frame is considered as a anomaly feature. Evaluations on UMN and PETS2009 datasets show that the proposed method performs competitive results compared to the state-of-the-art methods.


Abnormal Crowd Behavior Detection Using Motion Information Images and Convolutional Neural Networks
Direkoğlu, Cem (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
We introduce a novel method for abnormal crowd event detection in surveillance videos. Particularly, our work focuses on panic and escape behavior detection that may appear because of violent events and natural disasters. First, optical flow vectors are computed to generate a motion information image (MII) for each frame, and then MIIs are used to train a convolutional neural network (CNN) for abnormal crowd event detection. The proposed MII is a new formulation that provides a visual appearance of cro...
Unsupervised Change Detection in Satellite Images using Oversegmentation and Mutual Information
Taskesen, Bahar; Besbinar, Beril; Koz, Alper; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2017-05-18)
In this paper, a novel solution to the problem of unsupervised change detection in bitemporal satellite images is presented. Information measures, which are well-known and commonly-used in the change detection literature, result in unsharp change maps and masks without well defined boundaries as a result of local computation. In the proposed method, mutual information with local joint distributions computed within the over-segments after image registration, radiometric correction and some preprocessing step...

In this study, we developed a conceptual design for a high resolution multichannel ECG data acquisition system for recording of electrical activity of the heart. The system has modular architecture, both in hardware and software layers. It consists of several recording units controlled by sub-microcontrollers, and one main unit that contains the main-microcontroller. Special distributed message based operating system has been developed and embedded to sub-microcontrollers and main-microcontroller to provide...
Anomaly Detection in Trajectories
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2016-05-19)
In this work, we study the problem of anomaly detection of the trajectories of objects in a visual scene. For this purpose, we propose a novel representation for trajectories utilizing covariance features. Representing trajectories via covariance features enables us to calculate the distance between the trajectories of different lengths. After setting this proposed representation and calculation of distances, anomaly detection is achieved by sparse representations on nearest neighbours. Conducted experiment...
Hyperspectral Anomaly Detection Method Based on Auto-encoder
Bati, Emrecan; Caliskan, Akin; Koz, Alper; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2015-09-23)
A major drawback of most of the existing hyperspectral anomaly detection methods is the lack of an efficient background representation, which can successfully adapt to the varying complexity of hyperspectral images. In this paper, we propose a novel anomaly detection method which represents the hyperspectral scenes of different complexity with the state-of-the-art representation learning method, namely auto-encoder. The proposed method first encodes the spectral image into a sparse code, then decodes the co...
