Visual analysis is concerned with detection and analysis of a target object in a sequential stream of images. While many algorithms are successful to detect objects effectively in controlled environments, they get bugged with the variations of the object's appearance or with the surrounding change. The ability to reliably detect and track moving objects is a challenging task. Interacting with moving bodies and understanding their activities are at the core of many problems in intelligent systems. Some examples of its applications can be: automated surveillance of venues like airports, railway stations, highways. The software will monitor security cameras and detect suspicious behavior. Moreover, human operators can look for activities that they specify without requiring manual viewing of each sequence.
