Paper Abstract

We recently implemented a heterogeneous network of infrared motion detectors and an infrared camera for the detection, localization, tracking, and identification of human targets. The network integrates dense deployments of low cost motion sensors for target tracking with sparse deployments of image sensors for target registration. Such networks can be used in tactical applications for local and distributed perimeter and site security. Rapid deployments for crisis management may be of particular interest. This paper focuses particularly on the need for applications that deal with relatively dense and complex source fields such as crowds move through sensor spaces.
