Abstract

During the last decades, video surveillance systems (VSS) have become popular and, nowadays, they can be found almost everywhere. When those systems were initially deployed, they were mainly used by authorities only and, people tend to accept to be surveilled for the sake of security. Currently, VSS are located in public places and controlled by governmental agencies, but some others are placed in private spaces and controlled by corporations, banks, and so on. In addition, VSS have gained computational capabilities and, nowadays, off-the-shelf cameras are able to record high quality digital video that can be easily shared by means of private networks or even the Internet. Trust is strictly related to the operators of those VSS and their behaviour. Hence, it is necessary to define a comprehensive model for trustworthy video surveillance, aiming at preserving the right to privacy of citizens. In this article we present a platform for trustworthy video surveillance. Our model is based on the use of real-time and accurate techniques, and the active cooperation of people using mobile applications.
