Smoke detection in videosurveillance: the use of VISOR (Video Surveillance On-line Repository)

Abstract: Visor (VIdeo Surveillance Online Repository) is a large videorepository, designed for containing annotated video surveillancefootages, comparing annotations, evaluating systemperformance, and performing retrieval tasks. The web interfaceallows video browse, query by annotated conceptsor by keywords, compressed video preview, media downloadand upload. The repository contains metadata annotations,both manually created ground-truth data and automaticallyobtained outputs of particular systems. An exampleof application is the collection of videos and annotationsfor smoke detection, an important video surveillance task. Inthis paper we present the architecture of ViSOR, the build-insurveillance ontology which integrates many concepts, alsocoming from LSCOM, and MediaMill, the annotation toolsand the visualization of results for performance evaluation.The annotation is obtained with an automatic smoke detectionsystem, capable to detect people, moving objects, andsmoke in real-time.
