An IP-Based Live Database Approach to Surveillance Application Development
With the proliferation of inexpensive cameras, video surveillance applications are becoming ubiquitous in many domains such as public safety and security, manufacturing, intelligent transportation systems, and healthcare. IP-based video surveillance technologies, in particular, are able to bring traditional video surveillance centers to virtually any computer at any location with an Internet connection. Today's IP-based video surveillance systems, however, are designed for specific classes of applications. For instance, one cannot use a system designed for incident detection on highways to monitor patients in a healthcare facility. To support rapid development of video surveillance applications, the authors designed and implemented a new class of general purpose database management system, the Live Video Database Management System (LVDBMS).
