A method for static CCTV image analysis to improve biometric security systems
by Jerzy Mikulik
International Journal of Biometrics (IJBM), Vol. 5, No. 3/4, 2013

Abstract: In this paper, a concept of an access-control system based on mantrap and an analysis of static images from surveillance cameras is introduced. The results of this concept have been obtained by the analysis of images from surveillance cameras or digital cameras. These devises are not elements of mantraps. The motivation of this study is the importance of the ability to detect such events in a protected area. The method can be used as a supplement to a system of biometric identification of persons. The paper presents the structure of a threat detection system and subsequent operations on recorded images made by an application specially developed for this purpose. The paper discusses methods of collecting and recording data as well as methods of contextual and non-contextual processing of images that have a decisive impact on the final form of the material used for comparison with a database.
