Publisher's Comments

With recent advancements in video surveillance that can autonomously recognize people, detect movements, and identify targeted activities in real time, this volume examines the fundamental principles of current intelligent video surveillance systems, their algorithmic design, and system implementation issues, for new and experienced practitioners and researchers, educators, and students. Ma, a research scientist and electrical engineer, and Qian (electrical engineering, Arizona State U., Tempe) compile 17 chapters by electrical engineers, computer scientists, and others working in industry and academia in the US and Europe, who discuss background modeling, object-people detection, and tracking; techniques for activity recognition; multi-camera systems; and applications of intelligent video surveillance systems such as searching for people, soft biometrics, target tracking and geo-localization from an airborne platform, and 3D urban surveillance site reconstruction.
