The project objective is to increase intelligence in video surveillance and for this purpose the proposal approach process will consists of:

camera-specific processes

a modular implementation of successive analysis layers, which is applied for optimal situational awareness: chaining, motion, figure, face.

In addition to the camera's processing capabilities, the network consists of: cheap sensors, network analysis and system for control room.
