Abstract:

The objective of this proposed research effort is to conduct a feasibility study of in-vehicle Group Activities iVGA and develop suitable context-based taxonomy and ontology schemas for coherent analysis and inferencing of such activities. The prime objective of feasibility study is to identify suitable automated computer vision-based techniques enabling low false alarm rate identification of iVGA. Another objective is to develop a suitable virtual simulation environment as a test bed for staging appropriate context-based scenarios exhibiting different iVGA for testing and evaluation of newly developed ontology, algorithms and techniques. The goal is map visual observations of iVGA to annotated messages describing spatiotemporal behaviors exhibited in the confined space of a vehicle in lieu of physical obstructions and inevitable occlusions. In this project, partially observable spatiotemporal imagery data are analyzed to reason, predict, and discriminate group activities occurring in confined spaces.
