Title : Distributed Multi-Camera Networks: Graphs, Grammars, and Tensors

Abstract : Tremendous efforts have been made over the past decade to install large camera networks in sensitive facilities and metropolitan areas. The aim of the deployed camera networks is to enhance surveillance, security, traffic monitoring, and emergency management. The critical limitation of camera networks is the enormous volume of data generated, rendering large-scale real-time imaging efforts ineffective. In this talk, we introduce a new design methodology for distributed signal processing based on complex-structure representation models of multi-camera visual data. We demonstrate the proposed approach to distributed multi-camera systems in various applications such as target tracking, pose estimation, event detection, and image rendering and reconstruction.
