Abstract: The use of active (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) cameras is becoming increasingly popular because the active cameras are endowed with pan-tilt-zoom capabilities that can be exploited to focus on and observe the targets at high image/video resolution. In order to achieve effective real-time surveillance, an efficient automated mechanism is required to autonomously coordinate and control these cameras' actions.The objective of this work is thus to address the following central surveillance problem: "How can a network of active cameras be coordinated to monitor a set of moving targets with a guaranteed image resolution?" In this thesis, we formulate a novel decision-theoretic multi-agent approach for controlling and coordinating multiple active cameras in surveillance. Both the simulations and real camera experiments show that our decision-theoretic approach can control and coordinate active cameras efficiently and hence contributes significantly towards improving the active camera surveillance research.
