Mobile video surveillance systems: An architectural overview

Abstract: The term mobile is now added to most of computer based systems as synonymous of several different concepts, ranging on ubiquitousness, wireless connection, portability, and so on. In a similar manner, also the name mobile video surveillance is spreading, even though it is often misinterpreted with just limited views of it, such as front-end mobile monitoring, wireless video streaming, moving cameras, distributed systems. This chapter presents an overview of mobile video surveillance systems, focusing in particular on architectural aspects (sensors, functional units and sink modules). A short survey of the state of the art is presented. The chapter will also tackle some problems of video streaming and video tracking specifically designed and optimized for mobile video surveillance systems, giving an idea of the best results that can be achieved in these two foundation layers. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
