Wide Area Aerial Surveillance

Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) enables the surveillance of tens of square kilometers while using only a single airborne sensor, which is comprised of a matrix of multiple cameras. Images of neighboring cameras overlap and are stitched to form an image with larger ground coverage at high resolution. At Fraunhofer IOSB, we develop methods for automatic analysis of WAMI data. These methods are used for person and object detection, simultaneous tracking in multiple regions in real time, and recognition suspicious behavioural patterns.
