Multi Camera Visual Surveillance for Motion Detection Occlusion Handling Tracking and Event Recognition

2008-10-05
This paper presents novel approaches for background modeling, occlusion handling and event recognition by using multi-camera configurations that can be used to overcome the limitations of the single camera configurations. The main novelty in proposed background modeling approach is building multivariate Gaussians background model for each pixel of the reference camera by utilizing homography-related positions. Also, occlusion handling is achieved by generation of the top-view via trifocal tensors, as a result of matching over-segmented regions instead of pixels. The resulting graph is segmented into objects after determining the minimum spanning tree of this graph. Tracking of multi-view data is obtained by utilizing measurements across the views in case of occlusions. The last contribution is the classification of the resulting trajectories by GM-HMMs, yielding better results for using together all different view trajectories of the same object. Hence, multi-camera sensing is fully exploited from motion detection to event modeling.

QUALITY EVALUATION OF STEREOSCOPIC VIDEOS USING DEPTH MAP SEGMENTATION
Sarikan, Selim S.; Olgun, Ramazan F.; Akar, Gözde (2011-09-09)
This paper presents a new quality evaluation model for stereoscopic videos using depth map segmentation. This study includes both objective and subjective evaluation. The goal of this study is to understand the effect of different depth levels on the overall 3D quality. Test sequences with different coding schemes are used. The results show that overall quality has a strong correlation with the quality of the background, where disparity is smaller relative to the foreground. The results also showed that con...
Keyframe based bi directional 2 D mesh representation for video object tracking and manipulation
Eren, Pekin Erhan (1999-10-28)
We propose a new bi-directional 2-D mesh representation of video objects, which utilizes multiple keyframes with forward and backward tracking. Experimental results on use of this representation for video object tracking in the presence of self occlusion are presented.
Depth assisted object segmentation in multi-view video
Cigla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2008-01-01)
In this work, a novel and unified approach for multi-view video (MVV) object segmentation is presented. In the first stage, a region-based graph-theoretic color segmentation algorithm is proposed, in which the popular Normalized Cuts segmentation method is improved with some modifications on its graph structure. Segmentation is obtained by recursive bi-partitioning of a weighted graph of an initial over-segmentation mask. The available segmentation mask is also utilized during dense depth map estimation ste...
Occlusion-aware 3-D multiple object tracking for visual surveillance
Topçu, Osman; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Ercan, Ali Özer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
This thesis work presents an occlusion-aware particle filter framework for online tracking of multiple people with observations from multiple cameras with overlapping fields of view for surveillance applications. Surveillance problem involves inferring motives of people from their actions, deduced from their trajectories. Visual tracking is required to obtain these trajectories and it is a challenging problem due to motion model variations, size and illumination changes and especially occlusions between mov...
