Passenger Flow Detection of Video Surveillance: A Case Study of High-Speed Railway Transport Hub in China
Detect moving object from a video sequence is a fundamental and critical task in many computer vision applications. With video surveillance system of high-speed railway transport hub, one of the aims for passenger flow detection is to accurately and promptly detect potential safety hazard hidden in passenger flow. In this paper, a procedure of passenger flow detection in high-speed railway transport hub is presented. According to the key steps of procedure, a modified background model based on Dempster-Shafer theory, and a passenger flow status recognition algorithm based on features of image connected domain are proposed to improve the accuracy and real-time performance of passenger flow detection. Credit and effects of proposed methods were proved by experiment on data from high-speed railway transport hub video surveillance system.
