The aim of this visit was to assess the current outcomes from the collaborations between QMUL and TUB in VideoSense mini-projects and draw the next steps in ongoing joint research and collaboration beyond the project lifetime. Ebroul gave an updates on MMV‟s recent research activities in area of foreground/background subtraction, person/pattern detection and both Partners explored possible opportunities for further collaboration. The results from the study of user requirements and ethical challenges in video analytics on real CCTV data have been analysed. Both Partners presented and discussed all the methods studied in respective research labs, mostly with focus on robust foreground/background subtraction and evaluation results of most effective approaches. Ebroul further presented proposed scalable solution to video surveillance application tackling high dimensional data, i.e. tens of thousands of pixels in the frame. TUB organised number of presentations from PhD students on similar topics, followed by tour around the lab. Ebroul had an opportunity to learn about TUB relevant activities and recent projects. The conclusion from the visit was the updated plan for on-going collaboration with key focus on improving real time performance.
