Security video surveillance systems, such as homeland security and national defense, rely on specific mathematical algorithms in order to run effectively. It is essential for these parameters to be understood in order to design and create a successful system.

Video Surveillance Techniques and Technologies presents empirical research and acquired experience on the original solutions and mathematical algorithms for motion detection and object identification problems. Emphasizing a wide variety of applications of security systems, this book is an essential tool for graduate students and professionals in the field of signal and image processing applied in static/moving object detection, tracking, and identification.
