    Forensic age progression for the purpose of aging a missing child is a discipline currently dominated by artistic methodologies. In order to improve on these techniques, we present a statistically rigorous approach to the aging of the human face. The technique is based upon a Principal Component Analysis and involves the definition of an aging direction through the model space, using an age-weight... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a fast and robust Gabor feature based approach for face recognition. The most discriminative Gabor features are selected by the AdaBoost procedure, which are then subjected to the Generalized Discriminant Analysis (GDA) process for further class separability enhancement. Compared with the huge number of features used by typical classification algorithms using Gabor filters, ou... View full abstract»

    This paper applies a video modelling technique to a surveillance scenario where pedestrians are monitored to detect unusual events. The aim is to investigate the components of an automatic vision system capable of detecting normal and abnormal behaviour. Such a system has application in surveillance scenarios like town centre plazas, stadiums, train stations and shopping malls. Surveillance usuall... View full abstract»

    The Analysts' Detection Support System is a flexible processing engine developed to assist the imagery analyst to detect targets in all-source surveillance imagery. It provides the means of structuring a hierarchy of algorithms which, when applied to the data, makes progressively refined decisions on the locations of targets. In particular, we present infrastructure developments which facilitate e... View full abstract»

  • The effect of H.264-AVC coding artifacts on intermediate view synthesis for multicamera systems

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 23 - 27

    In rapidly deployable video surveillance networks, camera positions may be heavily constrained and coverage limited and often sparse. To enhance visualization, automatic depth estimation algorithms can be utilized to enable the synthesis of arbitrary views of the scene, offering a pseudo 'look-around' capability. In a wireless local area network, bandwidth limitations and channel transmission erro... View full abstract»

    Due to the nature of projects that the Advanced Technology Centre of BAE Systems typically undertakes, the rapid design and development of the software-intensive embedded systems needed to support the research, demonstration and deployment of our technologies is important. This paper describes our approach for the rapid deployment of system-of-systems. Our development and deployment of a decentral... View full abstract»

  • The importance of 'scalability' in video surveillance architectures

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 29 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    The choice of the video coding technology strongly influences the design (and costs) of digital video surveillance architectures. Today, these limitations are no longer there and digital video coding is required to provide additional functionalities in addition to pure compression performances: e.g. low delay encoding-decoding, fast random access and "scalability". Scalable video coding schemes ar... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present a system for the automatic detection and tracking of metallic objects concealed on moving people in sequences of millimetre-wave images, which can penetrate clothing, plastics and fabrics. The system employs two distinct stages: detection and tracking. In this paper a single detector, for metallic objects, is presented which utilises a statistical model also developed in t...

    In the paper we present our project concerning a modular image processing environment to be used as a forensic tool by law enforcement laboratories in the analysis of crime scene videos and images. It is designed to overcome one of the main drawbacks of standard image processing tools, mainly the lack of full control and documentation on the operations which have been performed on the images; more...

    The general objective of the ATRIUM project is to enable automated detection of threats hidden under clothes using millimetre-wave imaging. In the physics-based approach developed to address this problem, physical characteristics (such as the dielectric constant of the materials of the objects) are used to classify the different kind of materials present in the scene and inform a decision about th...

    Four of the main crime detection and prevention functions of law enforcement personnel are: physical deterrence; monitoring public areas; responding to crimes; and forensic analysis to "pick up the pieces". An acknowledged challenge is the lack of manpower to be effective at these functions. Law enforcement agencies everywhere are embracing new technologies as "force multipliers" to make their exi...

  • Saccades planning with kinetic TSP for distant targets identification

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 145 - 149
    Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (251 KB)  

    This paper considers the problem of designing an active observer to plan a sequence of decisions regarding what target to look at, through a foveal-sensing action. We propose a framework in which a pan/tilt/zoom camera schedules saccades in order to acquire high resolution images (at least one) of as many moving targets as possible before they leaving the scene. An intelligent choice of the order ... View full abstract»

    The proliferation of CCTV surveillance systems creates a problem of how to effectively navigate and search the resulting video archive, in a variety of security scenarios. We are concerned here with a situation where a searcher must locate all occurrences of a given person or object within a specified timeframe and with constraints on which camera(s) footage is valid to search. Conventional approa... View full abstract»

    Much of the forensic evidence recovered at a crime scene is represented visually (finger prints; foot marks etc.). Such recovered scene marks are often poor quality, so that standard image processing packages and algorithms are ineffectual. Instead, forensic scene marks must be carefully interpreted by skilled forensic examiners. This paper presents a framework for the application of image analysi... View full abstract»

    Road traffic monitoring using visual-based camera and real-time image processing techniques has been actively investigated over the years. Traffic image sequences are important information for the purpose of traffic system control and traffic accidents surveillance, for example, the determination of offending vehicles.

    In this paper, we motivate ongoing work into developing methods for the automated tracking of small hand movements in interview situations to aid nonverbal behaviour analysis in the detection of deception. Existing techniques for detecting and tracking hand motion are reviewed to place current and future technical work into context. We present a modification to the popular colour predicate approac...
