Promotion of Academic-Industrial Alliance of Computer Vision-based Visual Surveillance


Intelligent environment surveillance has been a frontier technology with given high priority from the governments of USA and China, and embodied in homeland security act and related laws. Different security levels are formulated and various infrastructures are constructed by executive and legislative bodies.  Therefore,  intelligent  environment  surveillance  has  attracted  world-wide  attentions  from  both academic research institutes and industries. Our research team has been conducting the phase one of this project  (2012/02-2015/01),  entitled  “Promotion  of  Academic-Industrial  Alliance  of  Computer

Vision-based Visual Surveillance” sponsored by Ministry of Science and Technology, for almost three years  and  has  achieved  many  accomplishments. With  the  experiences  in  both  academia  and  industrial cooperation (including 5 large surveillance integrated systems) accumulated during the 8-year project entitled  “Construction  of  Vision-based  Intelligent  Environment”,  sponsored  by  the  Academic Technology Development Program of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, our team plans to continue the goal  of  Phase  1  to  promote  the  developed  techniques  in  fields  of  computer  vision  and  intelligence surveillance.  By  organizing  the  “Academic-Industrial  Alliance  of  Computer  Vision-based  Visual Surveillance,” our team endeavor ourselves to continue the academic-industrial cooperation initialized in Phase 1 and to further strengthen our contributions in product development for related industry.


Toward the goals mentioned above, the alliance supported by this project will integrate the three task  forces  in  Phase  1,  including,  technology  promotion,  certification  study;  and  communication  and education,  into  the  platform  of  “Technology  Promotion  and  Human  Resource  Development.”  This platform  will  provide  members  of  the  alliance  with  professional  services  including  technology matchmaking, testing, and incubation of technical calibre. Furthermore, the alliance will ask help from the  advisory  committee  of  this  project  and  “Image  Processing  and  Pattern  Recognition  Society  of Taiwan,  IPPR”  for  consultancy  and  advisory  (PI  of  this  project  currently  serves  as  the  president  of IPPR).  To  fulfill  technical  requests  from  industrial  partners,  customized  consulting  teams  will  be organized to provide advisory services. With high confidence, conductance of this project will sure to effectively advance the technology standard of surveillance industry and enhance the values and global competitiveness of related products.
