A context representation for surveillance systems

Authors: F. Bremond and M. Thonnat,


In this paper we address the issue of context representation for scene interpretation systems. Although contextual information is often essential for these systems, its effective utilization remains elusive. After proposing a definition of context, the first part of this paper explainsthe reasons why scene interpretation systems especially need context. Then, wedescribe a global context representation, expressed under a common formalism. This paper ends with an example of effective utilization of the proposed context representation.

Keywords: Scene interpretation, Contextual information, Context representation.
