The main objective of this report is to analyse existing data sets for video analytics (VA) and to determine how best to enable collection/common access to data sets in the EU for testing/evaluation of video surveillance software.
This report presents a critical analysis of video analytic data sets with specific attention to the protection of critical infrastructures. The introductory part of the report describes the importance of VA and the growth of the related market. In this scenario the importance of the usage of a common data set is highlighted. The main reason of the fundamental importance of data sets in video analysis is the intrinsic complexity of VArelated techniques: a common set of video sequences is seen as a powerful boost in the design, development and testing of VA algorithms.
