Utility-Based Camera Assignment in a Video Network: A Game Theoretic Framework
In this paper an approach for camera assignment and handoff in a video network based on a set of user-supplied criteria is proposed. The approach is based on game theory, where bargaining mechanisms are considered for collaborations as well as for resolving conflicts among the available cameras. Camera utilities and person utilities are computed based on a set of user-supplied criteria, which are used in the process of developing the bargaining mechanisms. Different criteria and their combination are compared with each other to understand their effect on camera assignment.
