Real-time Indoor Theft Detection System Using Computer-Vision

Authors(2) :-Manish Shrivastava, Princy Matlani

Real-time Indoor theft detection from surveillance videos is not only a challenging problem of object detection and human activity recognition in the field of computer vision, but also an urgent need for preventing theft crimes in real life. The system uses digital cameras to scan the faces of people approaching a security gate i.e. the entry gate, and then matches its faces with the faces in the database, and if found not to be a known one it automatically generates an alert. In this paper, we propose a framework for real-time indoor theft detection based on the combining result of face recognition and pattern matching by analyzing the activities with that of thieves. At last, if detected abnormal it automatically sends a message using Multimedia Message Service with the help of GPRS/GSM modem.
