ABSTRACT: A single camera is not capable of covering large areas. Hence, we use multiple cameras which are placed in different sections of the area to be covered. The cameras are placed with overlapping region between field of view (FOV) of different cameras. Each camera will capture the video of its FOV. The system is intelligent enough to track people successfully in multiple perspective imagery, by establishing correspondence between objects captured in multiple cameras. Thus, it saves the tedious job of manual tracking. The methodology used to track the object is the BLOCK METHOD ANALYSIS which works on the principle of prediction. A search window for each object in the frame is acquired which helps in giving us the trajectory of the object. Continuity of this process in each frame will give the track of the object. For tracking multiple objects, the system will give labeling to every object in the frame.There can be a possibility where one object will be hidden by another object in the FOV of any one of the cameras. This problem is referred to as occlusion. In such a situation, the tracking of the hidden object should not be stopped. Hence, occlusion needs to be detected and removed. Our system deals with this problem. This project will be useful in surveillance. Need of surveillance is to monitor people or objects in areas like car parking, hotels etc for security purpose. Use of such a system will be beneficial in places which require less labour and more efficiency. Thus, it is used for public benefit.
