SAC Uses Multisensor Input to Compute Target Probability
SAC Uses Multisensor Input to Compute Target Probability
The self-aiming camera (SAC) is an automatic surveillance camera developed by a team of neuroscientists and computer scientists at the University of Illinois, including Thomas S. Huang and Thomas Anastasio. SAC aims itself at the same types of items that a human security agent would look at, using a computational method called Intelligent Multisensor Fusion (IMF). The SAC uses its spatially aligned multisensor input to estimate the probability of a target at the corresponding location in the environment. Then the camera aims at the location with the highest target probability. Both the SAC and IMF have been patented.
