Abstract:

We propose a method for designing randomized patrolling strategies with qualitative constraints. An artificial potential field of the surveilled environment is constructed that explicitly accounts for (and prioritizes) high value areas. The method translates the designed potential field into pan-tilt-zoom camera specific propensity maps. Considering multiple cameras, the mapping between desired potential fields and propensity maps involves a distribution of the surveillance objective, which is achieved by solving an Linear Programm (LP). Each camera then monitors the site according to a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm guided by these maps.
