In this paper we present an approach to recognize an SOS request through a video surveillance equipment. This project is intended to help the human surveillance operators in outdoor environment. We have fixed a rule to define an SOS request typical in nonverbal communication: a person must vary the space occupied in the environment and must look the camera when executes the SOS request. To recognize an SOS request the system evaluates three parameters: variation of the occupation time area, variation of the shape center coordinate and the length of the alert condition. Results and discussions on several sequences show the effectiveness.

Abstract

In this paper we present an approach to recognize an SOS request through a video surveillance equipment. This project is intended to help the human surveillance operators in outdoor environment. We have fixed a rule to define an SOS request typical in nonverbal communication: a person must vary the space occupied in the environment and must look the camera when executes the SOS request. To recognize an SOS request the system evaluates three parameters: variation of the occupation time area, variation of the shape center coordinate and the length of the alert condition. Results and discussions on several sequences show the effectiveness.
