Abstract

The Fraunhofer Institute for Information and Data Processing operates different types of sensors on several mobile and stationary platforms for surveillance such as micro UAVs, a helium captive balloon, a blimp, networks of radio sensors and various webcams, and mobile land and underwater robots. The surveillance system AMFIS is an integration platform that can be used to interconnect system components and algorithms. The specific tasks that can be performed using AMFIS include surveillance of scenes and paths, detection, location and identification of people and vehicles, detection and classification of suspicious behavior by people or vehicles as well as collection of evidence. The major advantages of this ground control station are the possibility of displaying and fusing data from multiple sensor sources and the high flexibility of the software architecture’s framework to build a variety of surveillance applications.
