'The current surveillance systems used in big buildings or infrastructures are based on the juxtaposed display of multiple alarms, sensors, and independently captured and processed video feeds. That array of inputs generates such a volume of information that is near to impossible to manage by the system users. The SV3D project aims at designing and implementing a security software platform to face these issues. To overcome this usability problems, cognitive and perceptual factors will be key factors in the design and evaluation phases of the project. They will guaranty improvements in the quality of work of operators in a control room, and how it will help them to avoid usual issues like tiredness, relaxation or dispersion in front of multi-channel stimulus overload. One of the solutions envisioned is the use of tridimensional computer generated environments to navigate the surveilled scenarios in a more comprehensive way integrating all aspects of video surveillance, such as sensing, alarm detection, etc. Another main novelty lies in the exploitation of the robust and accurate tracking capabilities offered by multi-camera environments, where several cameras cover the same scene from different viewpoints. Considering the surveillance problem in a multi-camera environment not only mitigates the difficulty of scene understanding (detection and tracking) caused by reflection, occlusion and shadow in the single view case, but also offers higher flexibility in producing relevant video reports. The system architecture will be open and flexible, scalable and distributed, and all communication protocols used in the project, will be based on standards (e.g. ONVIF), making it compatible with the widely installed legacy systems and leaving the whole data ready to be exploited by intelligent analysis systems to improve the precision of the real time alarm triggering or the after-incident forensic procedures.'
An EU-project developed a software interface for security system consoles. The virtual 3D display technology helps monitor scenes and provides sensor alerts; the tools also integrate with external video devices and existing systems.
Security console operators may have to monitor visual and other data of great complexity, and the demands of such work are increasing. Improved software interfaces may help operators keep track of important information and aid with threat detection.
Funded by the EU, the project 'Surveillance platform based on multi-source video analytics, localized data and cognitive interfaces' (http://www.fp7-sv3d.eu (SV3D)) developed such an interface. The six-member consortium aimed to create the technology needed to provide surveillance operators with a virtual 3D display, consisting of scene activity and sensor alerts.
The system was intended to be an integrated security platform, incorporating satellite positioning information and 3D coordinate treatment. The software was designed for interoperability with legacy equipment. Innovations included video calibration tools and various improvements for detection and tracking of people. SV3D ran for 20 months to the end of January 2013.
SV3D's final system is flexible, modular, extensible and standard. The technology incorporates 3D localisation data into a surveillance system's processing chain. Additional components include external video cameras and recorders, video analytics systems, a system manager, and various other video encoding and visualisation sub-systems.
Achievements included: an updated and integrated version of the final architecture, and a search and forensic sub-system including engines for alarm, action and replay. The software evaluates operators' cognitive and perceptual workloads, plus learning patterns. Capabilities include ability to track moving people or objects using a motorised PTZ camera.
Testing of prototype interoperability revealed a number of issues, which were addressed and improved. Full testing results were detailed in a report.
The project also conducted planning for dissemination, market analysis and commercial exploitation.
SV3D yielded a novel system for video surveillance, which incorporates spatial localisation into existing software components. The operator's tasks are improved and simplified, aiding detection of alarms plus detection and tracking of people.
