The prevalence of camera networks for surveillance, together with the decreasing cost of infrastructure, has produced a significant demand for robust monitoring systems. Current systems offer limited functionality, particularly in their reliance on centralised processing of gathered information. This project addresses end-to-end system challenges of wireless visual sensor networks. Integrating developments across the spatial, spatio-temporal and decision domains, the project will incorporate distributed sensor network technology with intelligent fusion of information, to deliver unique long-term behaviour analysis capabilities for efficient planning in highly crowded environments.
