A Fuzzy Spatio-temporal-Based Approach for Activity Recognition
Over the last decade, there has been a significant deployment of systems dedicated to surveillance. These systems make use of real-time sensors that generate continuous streams of data. Despite their success in many cases, the increased number of sensors leads to a cognitive overload for the operator in charge of their analysis. However, the context and the application requires an ability to react in real-time. The research presented in this paper introduces a spatio-temporal-based approach the objective of which is to provide a qualitative interpretation of the behavior of an entity (e.g., a human or vehicle). The process is formally supported by a fuzzy logic-based approach, and designed in order to be as generic as possible.
