In a world where people get still terrified by terroristic attacks, bombing and aggressions, automated video-surveillance systems are very demanded in order to guarantee the  safety of  persons and sites of particular interest (i.e. airport, station,  archaeological site and so on).

Distributed large-scale systems pose the challenging problem of dealing with impressive quantity of data, and video analytics tools are needed for filtering and analyzing such huge amount of data.

In collaboration with the Image and Vision Computing (IVC) Group of the Computer Science Department at Boston University, we develop methods and techniques to query distributed surveillance databases.

We also work on attractive problems such as person re-identification, multi-person tracking and on-line camera calibration.
