Laboratorio di Ambient Intelligence per una Città Amica

Research activity in video surveillance for advanced services to the citizen, such as security in public parks, traffic monitoring, and video content delivery. In collaboration with Comune di Reggio Emilia.

laica scheme

LAICA is a project funded by Regione Emilia-Romagna within the "1.1 Initiative" of the Telematic Framework.

Imagelab takes part to the project as UniMORE-DII research unit composed by:

  • Prof. Rita Cucchiara
  • Dr. Andrea Prati
  • Ing. Simone Calderara

Imagelab's basic activities in LAICA are:

  • Scientific coordination of the whole project (Prof. Rita Cucchiara)
  • Research activity in Computer Vision for People Surveillance

Specific research activities in LAICA-Park are:

  • Detection and tracking of people with single, multiple and moving cameras;
  • People obscuration for privacy purposes;
  • People surveillance for security purposes.
