Project Details


As time progresses and technology advances, more and more diverse sensors are developed to provide environment monitoring so as to protect the life and property of the people. The video surveillance system with visual sensing abilities is one of the most efficient and useful applications for security and safety. Currently, multi-type and heterogeneous visual sensing cameras have been designed for modern 3D environments, such as panoramic camera, rotatable cameras, and optical zoomable cameras, which support powerful control mechanisms and plenty of monitoring capacities. However, there are lots of types and heterogeneous visual cameras with great differences on the monitoring abilities as well as deployment costs. Therefore, how to efficiently deploy such heterogeneous visual cameras to achieve high surveillance reliability as well as performance under the considerations of the costs, features of targets (including the variable locations, heights, facing directions, and static/mobility states, etc.), quality of surveillance (such as view-angle, resolution in terms of pixels-per-foot (PPF), shadowing due to light-of-sight (LoS), and leverage the heterogeneous abilities in cooperation with dynamic dispatch, and thus to optimize field-of-view (FoV), enhance surveillance reliability, and make the smart visual sensing technology come true. This project aims to propose a three-year research work. In the first year, we will study the optimal deployment of heterogeneous visual cameras with considerations of reliability, performance and cost in 3D environments. In the second year, we will deeply focus on the optimal dispatch of heterogeneous visual cameras with dynamic surveillance requirements in 3D Environments. In the third year, we will extend the results of the previous two years and design a real smart surveillance system with environmental sensing and wearable devices tracking. In these designs and techniques, we will consider both the characteristics of static monitoring objects and mobile targets and thus to develop a new generation of smart deployment/dispatch technologies of heterogeneous visual cameras. All of the proposed approaches will be evaluated by mathematical analyses and simulations. With these evaluations, our designs can be further improved to achieve more excellent performance. We expect that the results of this project would provide valuable information for the future system design of smart surveillance.
