Novel architecture for surveillance cameras with complementary metal oxide semiconductor image sensors
This work presents a novel architecture of an intelligent video surveillance camera. It is embedded with automated scene analysis and object behavior detection, so that operators can monitor more venues relying on the system that provides immediate response to suspicious events. The developed camera turns passive video data recording systems into active collaborators with security operators leaving to them only high-level decision making, while automatically carrying out all monotonous work on continuous video monitoring. When there is no alarming activity inside a restricted area the camera automatically turns back to the whole view mode.
