This report describes a technique for gathering information from a multitude of sensors in a given environment, and integrating it into a coherent and comprehensive Environment Model EM. The focus of this effort is on the use of Multiple Perspective Interactive Video technology for intelligent video monitoring of environments. The technology developed was applied to two scenarios the surveillance of a room used as a library and the surveillance of a parking lot. An overall architecture was developed, one for each scenario. For the first scenario library, four cameras were used to monitor the activity in the room. The system worked on two PCs and monitored activity like stealing an object, loitering near a bookshelf, and jumping on a table. The second scenario parking lot, included three cameras. The system monitored activity like pedestrians going near several cars, cars entering the parking lot at excessive speed,, and cars remaining in the same spot for more than a specified amount of time.
