Brief description Current visual surveillance systems can track people in an area only if complete camera coverage is provided. This project will develop a visual surveillance system able to track and record people's movements in a public building requiring only limited visual coverage. We will propose novel ways of matching images of a single individual from distant cameras by using features such as color histograms decomposed for the different body parts, estimated height, and build type. Creating a record with this tracking information will effectively support security officers in the identification of responsible parties in the event of an offence.
