  • Publication number: 20190073538
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and a corresponding system for classifying objects from a stream of images are presented. The method comprises: providing input data comprising data indicative of at least one image stream; processing said input data and extracting from said at least one image stream a plurality of foreground objects; classifying said plurality of objects, said classifying comprising associating at least some of said plurality of objects in accordance with at least one object type, thereby generating at least one group of objects of similar object types; and generating a training database comprising a plurality of data pieces/records, each data piece comprising image data of one of said plurality of foreground objects and a corresponding objects type. The training database is typically configured for use in training of a learning machine system.

  • Publication number: 20140028842
    Abstract: A calibration device is presented for use in a surveillance system for event detection. The calibration device comprises an input utility for receiving data indicative of an image stream of a scene in a region of interest acquired by at least one imager and generating image data indicative thereof, and a data processor utility configured and operable for processing and analyzing said image data, and determining at least one calibration parameter including at least one of the imager related parameter and the scene related parameter.

  • Patent number: 8004563
    Abstract: Method and system for performing event detection and object tracking in image streams by installing in field, a set of image acquisition devices, where each device includes a local programmable processor for converting the acquired image stream that consist of one or more images, to a digital format, and a local encoder for generating features from the image stream. These features are parameters that are related to attributes of objects in the image stream. The encoder also transmits a feature stream, whenever the motion features exceed a corresponding threshold. Each image acquisition device is connected to a data network through a corresponding data communication channel. An image processing server that determines the threshold and processes the feature stream is also connected to the data network.
