The demand for surveillance systems has increased extremely over recent times. We present a system consisting of a distributed network of cameras that allows for tracking and handover of multiple persons in real time. The intercamera tracking results are embedded as live textures in an integrated 3D world model which is available ubiquitously and can be viewed from arbitrary perspectives independent of the persons’ movements. We mainly concentrate on our implementation of embedded camera nodes in the form of smart cameras and discuss the benefits of such a distributed surveillance network compared to a host centralized approach. We also briefly describe our way of hassle free 3D model acquisition to cover the complete system from setup to operation and finally show some results of both an indoor and an outdoor system in operation.
