Abstract

Analysis of driving patterns, correlated with locations and time of day can be used to determine places (and times) where patrolling police vehicles slow down, potentially indicating areas that need more surveillance. The conclusion is further strengthened when civilians do NOT slow down in the same places (and time). The location can be further refined when the police officer(s) in the vehicle look in a specific direction in a consistent way (i.e. left or right side of the street). This analysis can be used to Automatically record video and take pictures of the places where the officer slows down and where he looks Do visualizations of the areas that meet these characteristics, including showing sides of the street officers are always looking, for a crime analyst to correlate with crime data and plan patrols. Use as training for new officers on a beat, by showing them where experienced officers slow down and direction they look, via visualization on an in-vehicle screen The system may be extended to that of a personal area network whereby the actions of a patrolman walking a beat could have his actions monitored using body worn sensors and geolocation and steps/movement sensors to feed into the controller all of the data to determine areas of risk, ordering pictures etc as similar to that of the officer on patrol. Details are provided in the following slides

ABSTRACT

A solution is presented that tracks driving and walking patterns, that can be used to learn areas of interest for patrolling and crime prevention.

PROBLEM

Cameras for public safety surveillance have become ubiquitous. The amount of video content available for collection and review can be overwhelming. There is a need for methods that can manage the amount of video collected and help decide how to take action on collected video, to increase the return on investment for camera and video storage solutions.

SOLUTION

Analysis of driving patterns, correlated with locations and time of day can be used to determine places and times where patrolling police vehicles slow down, potentially indicating areas that need more surveillance. The conclusion is further strengthened when civilians do NOT slow down in the same places and times. The location can be further refined when the police officer(s) in the vehicle look in a specific direction in a consistent way, such as to left or right side of the street.

This analysis can be used to automatically record video and take pictures of the places where the officer slows down and in the direction the officer looks.

This analysis may also be used to do visualizations of the areas that meet these characteristics, including showing sides of the street officers are always looking. These visualizations can be useful for a...
