Video surveillance and multimedia forensics: an application to trajectory analysis

Abstract: This paper reports an application of trajectory analysis in which forensics and video surveillance techniques are jointly employed for providing a new tool of multimedia forensics. Advanced video surveillance techniques are used to extract from a multi-camera system the trajectories of the moving people which are then modelled by either their positions (projected on the ground plane) or their directions of movement. Both these two representations can be very suitable for querying large video repositories, by searching for similar trajectories in terms of either sequences of positions or trajectory shape (encoded as sequence of angles, where positions do not care). Preliminary examples of the possible use of this approach are shown.
