This project uses a combination of image analysis tools ranging from rule-base, adaptive, statistical, and deep learning networks to segment, classify and estimate the movement of humans and their bodies as captured by surveillance videos. Crowd management is vital for public safety and the current challenges are the very poor quality of images / videos available.
