Monitoring a large surveillance space through distributed face matching

Published in IEEE Computer Society
Large space with many cameras require huge storage and computational power to process these data for surveillance applications. In this paper we propose a distributed camera and processing based face detection and recognition system which can generate information for finding spatiotemporal movement pattern of individuals over a large monitored space. The system is built upon Hadoop Distributed File System using map reduce programming model. A novel key generation scheme using distance based hashing technique has been used for distribution of the face matching task. Experimental results have established effectiveness of the technique. © 2013 IEEE.
