Abstract : Teleos is developing and integrating active vision technology with intelligent, domain-specific control strategies to provide real-time visual detection, characterization, and tracking of objects in the security and surveillance domain. Work to date has focused on theoretical studies and experimentation in the areas of attentional mechanisms, figure-ground discrimination, recognition, and active sensor mechanisms to support visual surveillance. The primary research focus is on the detection and tracking of humans in a monitored area. This report describes new results in blob-based shape recognition; the use of oriented texture blobs for face-finding; and stereo based real-time figure-ground discrimination techniques.
