In this paper, we describe a system for smart surveillance using stereo images with applications to advanced video surveillance systems. The system utilizes two smart IP cameras to obtain the position and location of objects. In this case, the object target is human face. The position and location of the object are automatically extracted from two IP cameras and subsequently transmitted to an ACTi Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera, which then points and zooms to the exact position in space. This work involves video analytics for estimating the location of the object in a 3D environment and transmitting its positional coordinates to the PTZ camera. The research consists of algorithms development in surveillance system including face detection, block matching, location estimation and implementation with ACTi SDK tool. The final system allows the PTZ camera to track the objects and acquires images in high-resolution quality.
