A new report on video analytics is available. The first Video Analytics in Public Safety (VAPS) Workshop was held last June in San Diego as a satellite workshop of the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Broadband Stakeholder Meeting. Prior to the workshop, focus group panels from different communities of interest prepared joint presentations regarding the state of the practice/art, challenges, issues, needs and ideas from their community's perspective.Colorado Releases Public-Safety LTE RFP, Responses Due May 8

Because the VAPS workshop was the first time that many of these communities met in a technical exchange, the goal was to prepare high-level perspectives to cross-educate the communities. Video analytics applications typically address information needs that are typically referred to as the W questions: who, people detection and identification; what, object, activity, event, behavior and relationship analysis; where, frame space, 3D space and world map space; and when, date/day, time-of-day and time-of-year.
The findings and recommendations of the “Video Analytics in Public Safety” report are here.
