Description :

Recent years have witnessed the growing pervasiveness of intelligent video surveillance (VS) systems due to significant advancements of both deep learning and edge computing technologies. On one hand, deep learning has transformed VS systems into authentic visual intelligence ecosystems capable of detecting, recognizing and tracking objects of interest. On the other hand, edge computing (EC) offloads the computational burden from the network center to the edge of the network in order to minimize huge communication overhead. This project aims to optimize the network bandwidth utilization while maximizing the number of query-specified objects from multi-camera wireless video feeds.
