"Distributed Smart Cameras and Long-Term Care of Special Needs People"

Marilyn Wolf, Professor, ECE Department, Georgia Institute of Technology

October 6th (Monday), 10:00am
Harold Frank Hall (HFH), Rm 4164

We will discuss our work on distributed smart cameras and algorithms (developed with Honggab Kim and Justin Romberg) for tracking from cameras with non-overlapping fields of view. We developed an improved model for traffic movement in a network of cameras for use with Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) solution. We have also developed a distributed algorithm for MCMC tracking that does not rely on a centralized server. We will also discuss applications to the long-term care of special needs adults.
