RTP or RTCP Abstract The present invention is an alerting system having one or more sensors for capturing sensory data, one or more processors and one or more memories having program code to 1 capture sensory data from the one or more sensors; 2 capture attribute data representing information about the sensors used to capture the sensory data; 3 process the sensory data from the one or more sensors to detect primitive events in the sensory data; 4 correlate two or more primitive events, the primitive events weighted by the attribute data of the sensors used to capture the sensory data; and 5 perform one or more actions based on the correlation performed in the correlating step.
The system may also be connected to one or more legacy systems, such as FBI, Interpol, or other criminal database systems. More specifically, this invention relates to an intelligent security and surveillance system having alerts correlated using sensory data from one or more sensors, the sensory data weighted by attribute data representing information about the source of the sensory data.
The present invention may be used to help fight crime, detect and possibly prevent terrorist activity, and help ensure safety procedures are followed.
Every day, 30 people die by gunshot in the U. A police officer dies from a gunshot wound every ten days. An intelligent security and surveillance system may save lives. A recently foiled terrorist attack on Ft. They were observed by gate personnel and in video cameras nightly business report 2003 chevrolet the army base on numerous occasions prior to the planned attack.
The video tip included information and a video of the men training for the terrorist attack and plotting to kill as many American soldiers in as short a time as possible. During the Rodney King beatings ina bystander videotaped the police brutality and submitted the video to the courts.
Girls bullying other girls in school have been recorded on camera phones and the videos were submitted to school administrators, which started an investigation. Citizens are submitting tips containing multimedia information to the police, but this information is not correlated with other events, indexed, or archived.
Accordingly, an intelligent security and surveillance system utilizing tips containing multimedia information may help solve crime and prevent terrorist activity.
Vandalism and damage to property decreases property values. An intelligent security and surveillance system may prevent such vandalism. Unfortunately, monitoring and storing data from numerous surveillance cameras consumes a very large amount of storage.
Every year fromover a million motor vehicles were stolen every year. That corresponds to one car stolen every 26 seconds somewhere in the United States.
An intelligent security, surveillance, storage, and alerting system may help prevent stolen cars, and may identify stolen vehicles and hence aide in the apprehension of car thieves.
Unfortunately, no existing surveillance system has the intelligence to correlate information about vehicles or has the connectivity to FBI, Interpol, state, or local law enforcement databases. Violence in schools and on college campuses continues to rise, and has increased concern among students, parents, and teachers.
A shooting at Virginia Tech University in resulted in the killing of 32 people and injured 24 others. In Septembertwo students were shot by a fellow student at the Delaware State University. Shootings on college campuses are increasingly becoming a common concern.
An intelligent security and surveillance system on college campuses may thwart future shootings. Unfortunately, state-of-the-art gunshot detection systems are not connected intelligently to video surveillance systems, to tip information, or to other data from legacy systems.
Therefore, as recognized by the present inventors, what are needed are a method, apparatus, and system of alerting that weights input data from disparate systems to lower false alarm rates and to filter out unwanted, spurious, or intentionally distracting information.
It is against this background that various embodiments of the present invention were developed. Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, where the one or more sensors include surveillance camera, surveillance microphone, temperature probe, pressure probe, speedometer, chlorine meter, radon meter, dust particle meter, CO2 meter, water meter, electrical meter, blood pressure meter, or heart rate meter.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to filter out primitive events based on a set of privacy rules.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to detect compound events composed of two or more primitive events. Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to time correlate the primitive events and the compound events across time, space correlate the primitive events and the compound events across space, and evaluate one or more rules based on the correlation performed in the time correlating step and the space correlating step.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to generate one or more new rules based on the primitive events correlated in the correlating step and the actions performed in the action step.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to receive tip data from one or more external sources, determine attribute data for the tip data, the attribute data representing the reliability of the source of the tip data, and generate tip events based on the tip data and the attribute data.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including a hierarchy of two or more data storage devices for storing the sensory data from the one or more sensors, where the hierarchy of data storage devices is connected to the one or more sensors via a network.
Another embodiment of the present invention is the system described above, also including program code to manage storage and cascade of the sensory data in the hierarchy of data storage devices based on the attribute data corresponding to the source of the sensory data.Business filter filters out primitive events based on a set of business rules.
The set of business rules are defined by a system administrator, and are designed to customize the system to the business processes in which the present invention is being used.
