Context-Aware Video Analytics: Principles, Applications and Systems gives an introduction to video analytics using contextual information, presenting principles and their application, while show-casing complete analytic systems.

The book focuses on different levels of processing together with applications, and considers the range of contextual information that can be considered in solving video-analytic problems. The contextual information given ranges from self, geometric, scene, and domain-specific contexts.

The book has five parts: Introduction to video analytics and a range of applications; low-level processing relevant to detection, localization, and segmentation; mid-level processing relevant to modeling, matching, and tracking; high-level processing relevant to reasoning and recognition.

This reference work will be ideal for computer vison and machine learning researchers and graduate students working on developing video scene dynamics, activities and interactions, as well as engineers developing video analytic systems.

  • The first book to provide a comprehensive understanding of contextual information and its use in video analytics
  • Uniquely addresses the role of contextual information in developing video analytic solutions
  • Discusses the advances in algorithms that incorporate different kinds of contextual information across different levels of video processing
  • Includes MATLAB code for many of the discussed algorithms along with sample images/videos
