Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

Video analytics is key to intelligent surveillance systems ranging from simple algorithms of target detection to complex methodology for video semantics analysis. This paper presents a novel video analytics approach to generate a full view mosaic for a surveillance sequence to help detect moving objects in the presence of camera panning motion. Unlike the current panoramic transformation methods, in which pure horizontal panning motion is required to construct the mosaic, our method can deal with uncontrolled panning motion with slight camera tilt motion. This method provides a generic solution for real world surveillance camera issues such as undesired tilt motion because of the nonlinearity of camera moving mechanism, strong wind etc. Also this method can deal with both global and object motion. The sprite generated helps to detect moving objects, constructing motion trajectories and also provides a clean background reference even for a panning camera. The algorithm has been evaluated for several test sequences.
