Recent Developments in Video Surveillance

Edited by Hazem El-Alfy

Alexandria University, Egypt

With surveillance cameras installed everywhere and continuously streaming thousands of hours of video, how can that huge amount of data be analyzed or even be useful? Is it possible to search those countless hours of videos for subjects or events of interest? Shouldn’t the presence of a car stopped at a railroad crossing trigger an alarm system to prevent a potential accident? In the chapters selected for this book, experts in video surveillance provide answers to these questions and other interesting problems, skillfully blending research experience with practical real life applications. Academic researchers will find a reliable compilation of relevant literature in addition to pointers to current advances in the field. Industry practitioners will find useful hints about state-of-the-art applications. The book also provides directions for open problems where further advances can be pursued.
