Network Surveillance and Intruder Detection
The Scientific World Journal, Hindawi

Visual surveillance networks are installed in many security sensitive places in today’s world. In most of the cases, human security officers are required to continuously stare at large numbers of monitors simultaneously and for long periods of time. Constant alert vigilance for hours on end is difficult to maintain for human beings with natural cognitive limits on concentration and attention spans. It is thus important to remove the onus of detecting untoward activity, events which rarely occur, from the human security officer to an automated system. While various automated surveillance techniques are being developed based on installed static camera network, some other technologies like wireless visual or multimedia sensor networks could contribute in the process to make the systems more efficient by employing event-based activation strategies. All these camera-equipped networked devices of different categories could be assigned distinctive identification tags and thus, they could form an Internet of Things (IoT) to allow efficient network surveillance with minimal involvement of human operators. Many Internet-connected devices in this way would allow us to sense, warn, and control the physical world around us. Numerous research issues on the relevant fields are emerging as a need of time. This special issue opens the door for the researchers to publish their thoughts, models, findings, analysis, and future expectations in the broad field of automated network surveillance and intruder detection. Any topic related to automated network surveillance and intruder detection would be considered. Both original research and review articles on the topics are welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- Automated surveillance algorithms
- Cost effective network surveillance using sensors
- Surveillance network models
- Adoption of IP-based cameras in surveillance networks
- Metadata analysis in IoT based surveillance networks
- Visual sensor based IoT
- Security and reliability of IoT-based surveillance networks
