Abstract
In this paper, we propose a space Markov Random Field (MRF) model to detect abnormal activities in crowded scenes. The nodes of MRF graph consist of monitors evenly spread on the image, and neighboring nodes in space are associated with links. The normal patterns of activity at each node are learnt by constructing a Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) upon optical flow locally, while correlation between adjacent nodes is represented by building a single Gaussian model upon inner product of histogram vectors of optical flow observed from a region centered at each node respectively. For any optical flow patterns detected in test video clips, we use the learnt model and MRF graph to calculate an energy value for each local node, and determine whether the behavior pattern of the node is normal or abnormal by comparing the value with a threshold. Further, we apply a method similar to updating of GMM for background subtraction to incrementally update the current model to adapt for visual context changes over a long period of time. Experiments on the published UCSD anomaly datasets Ped1 and Ped2 show the effectiveness of our method.
