Camera Handoff with Adaptive Resource Management for Multi-camera Multi-target Surveillance
Camera handoff is a crucial step to generate a continuously tracked and consistently labeled trajectory of the object of interest in multi-camera surveillance systems. Most existing camera handoff algorithms concentrate on data association, namely consistent labeling, where images of the same object are matched across different cameras. However, most real-time object tracking systems see a decrease in the system’s frame rate as the number of tracked objects increases. To address this issue, we propose to incorporate an adaptive resource management mechanism into camera handoff. In so doing, cameras’ resources can be dynamically allocated to multiple objects according to their priorities and hence the required minimum frame rate can be maintained. Experimental results illustrate that the proposed camera handoff algorithm is capable of maintaining a constant frame rate and of achieving a substantially improved handoff success rate by approximately 20% in comparison with the algorith...
