Abstract

Workflow recognition through processing of humans and objects in a camera sensor network, presents a significant challenge recently. Human action recognition and sequence of actions manipulation, that construct a workflow situation/rule, has many practical applications in many different real human application environments. This article presents a multi agent based real time infrastructure, for recognizing humans workflows, by evaluating and processing computer vision signals, from multiple cameras sensors. The system architecture, the related agents’ infrastructure of the distributed environment of sensors, are presented together with the algorithmic modules, that evaluate sensors signals into workflow events, and related alarms’ outputs from the system. The article presents a full functional system that integrates the distributed functionality of the multi agents’ infrastructure into real working environments, using the JADE agents’ technologies. The evaluations of system simulation results are conclude this work, giving related feedback for possible future architecture and implementation extensions.
