From Visual Surveillance to Internet of Things: Technology and Applications
Sharma, Lavanya, Garg, Pradeep K.
From Visual Surveillance to Internet of Things: Technology and Applications is an invaluable resource for students, academicians and researchers to explore the utilization of Internet of Things with visual surveillance and its underlying technologies in different application areas. Using a series of present and future applications - business insights, indoor-outdoor securities, smart grids, human detection and tracking, intelligent traffic monitoring, e-health department and many more - this book will support readers to obtain a deeper knowledge in implementing IoT with visual surveillance.
The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including:
- The rise of machines and communications to IoT (3G, 5G)
- Tools and technologies of IoT with visual surveillance
- IoT with visual surveillance for real-time applications
- IoT architectures
- Challenging issues and novel solutions for realistic applications
- Mining and tracking of motion-based object data
- Image processing and analysis into the unified framework to understand both IOT and computer vision applications
This book will be an ideal resource for IT professionals, researchers, under- or post-graduate students, practitioners, and technology developers who are interested in gaining a deeper knowledge in implementing IoT with visual surveillance, critical applications domains, technologies, and solutions to handle relevant challenges.
