During this week Thales presented list of activities for the ongoing security projects which include Video Content Analysis; notably The MAKKAH project to detect over-crowded places and stampedes in the Mecca and the Mexico project to detect any traffic moving in the wrong direction (counter-flow), left luggage or other anomalous events in Mexico city. The results from other projects such as the number plate analysis, PRISM project, SECUR-ED project, and, the PROTECTRAIL project were also demonstrated to illustrate the issues that can occur in application of surveillance video-analytics within a full-scale infrastructure.
