IEEE Fifth International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance Learning and Classification of Trajectories in Dynamic Scenes: A General Framework for Live Video Analysis

By Brendan T. Morris and Mohan M. Trivedi


This paper presents a general framework for live video analysis. The activities of surveillance subjects are described using a spatio-temporal vocabulary learned from recurrent motion patterns. The repetitive nature of object trajectories is used to build a topographical scene description where nodes are points of interest (POI) and the edges correspond to activity paths (AP). The POI are learned through as a mixture of Gaussians and AP by clustering trajectories. The paths are probabilistically represented by hidden Markov models and adapt to temporal variations using online maximum likelihood regression (MLLR) and through a periodic batch update. Using the scene graph, new trajectories can be analyzed in online fashion to categorize past and present activity, predict future behavior, and detect abnormalities. 1
