With advances in wireless network infrastructure providing powerful support for surveillance video communications, it is practical to meet the needs of intelligent surveillance systems in a wide range of applications. This survey offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art technologies for intelligent video surveillance systems so as to provide researchers in this field with a summary of the progress achieved to date. The evolution of surveillance systems is outlined as well. In addition, the representative technologies for environment modeling, object classification, object tracking, behavioral analysis, and database implementation are summarized. Finally, we list several detailed discussions on possible future research directions.
