Distributed tracking by means of video pipeline reconfiguration

@ AViReS laboratory (Universitá degli Studi di Udine), Italy

Study and development of a set of algorithms for the realization of a distributed self-reconfigurable camera network for monitoring applications (e.g. surveillance, healthcare, elder monitoring, etc.). Such a main objective can be split into three intermediate goals: the video analytics pipeline can be made highly distributed and reconfigurable; the implementation of proper distributed algorithms; and the reconfiguration of the distributed task allocation. Game theory or market/bargain-bidding mechanism will be explored to cluster the network in subsets of cooperative cameras, and task each cluster with a proper video analytics objective. This research task aims to develop algorithms learn the network topology while providing situational awareness.
