Design of an intelligent video surveillance system for crime prevention: applying deep learning technology

This article has been updated


As the security threat and crime rate have been increased all over the globe, the video surveillance system using closed-circuit television (CCTV) has become an essential tool for many security-related applications and is widely used in many areas as a monitoring system. However, most of the data collected by the video surveillance system is used as evidence of objective data after crime and disaster have occurred. And, often time, video surveillance systems tend to be used in a passive manner due to the high cost and human resources. The video surveillance system should actively respond to detect crime and accidents in advance through real-time monitoring and immediately transmit data in case of an accident. This study proposes developing an intelligent video surveillance system that can actively monitor in real-time without human input. In solving the problems of the existing video surveillance system, deep learning technology will be carried through the data processing model design to visualize data for crime detection after building an artificial intelligence server and video surveillance camera. In addition, this design proposes an intelligent surveillance system to quickly and effectively detect crimes by sending a video image and notification message to the web through real-time processing.
