Paper Abstract

A fiber-based surveillance network overcomes the distance barrier. We are proposing a high performance, very flexible fiber-based real time visual surveillance network system that can be easily customized to the needs of the application. The system employs an FPGA-based DSP processor at the central processing unit to process and analyze video data from a network of cameras transmitted through an optical fiber network. The system is capable of handling various types of cameras including the reuse of existing cameras. This paper will show a proof of concept of certain functionalities of the system including the tracking of objects in a three-dimensional space using a stereo pair of cameras.
