Dynamic Behavior Analysis
at Multiple Levels
2009. X, 222 pages. EUR 64,00.
New cameras are installed daily all around the world.
Hence it becomes increasingly important to develop methods for reducing the
manual effort that is still required for video analysis. This book presents
several methods to automatically analyze the behavior of dynamically moving
persons in real-world scenes. Because an image captures different aspects of a
scene depending on the scale level, the analysis at different scale levels
requires individual approaches to explore the available kinds of information.
The innovations include a method to find faces and estimate their pose, a multi-person tracker for complex scenes, an algorithm to analyze the activity of interacting agents, a technique to detect novelty from webcam footage, and a method to estimate the structure of a scene.
About the author:
Michael D. Breitenstein received his PhD degree (Dr. sc. ETH) in 2009 and his
MSc degree in Computer Science (Dipl. Inf. Ing. ETH) in 2006, both from ETH
Zurich. From 2006 to 2009, he was research assistant at the Computer Vision Lab
of ETH Zurich, with Prof. Luc Van Gool. He did part of his research at Oxford
University and at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs. Before, he worked as a software
engineer in San Francisco and in Zurich. Michael was awarded the Innovation
Award 2009 from the Information Technology Society of Electrosuisse for his
research on multi-object tracking.
