An adaptive framework for building intelligent measurement systems has been proposed in the paper and tested on simulated traffic surveillance data. The use of the framework enables making intelligent decisions related to the presence of anomalies in the surveillance data with the help of statistical analysis, computational intelligent and machine learning. Computational intelligence can also be effectively utilised for identifying the main contributing features in detecting anomalous data points within the surveillance data. The experimental results have demonstrated that a reasonable performance is achieved in terms of inferential accuracy and data processing speed.
