To reduce the backbone video traffic generated by video surveillance, we propose an intelligent video surveillance system that offers multi-modal sensor-based event detection and event-driven video rate adaptation. Our proposed system can detect pedestrian existence and movements in the monitoring area by using multi-modal sensors (camera, laser scanner and infrared distance sensor) and control surveillance video quality according to the detected events. We evaluate event detection accuracy and video traffic volume in the experiment scenarios where up to six pedestrians pass through and/or stop at the monitoring area. Evaluation results conclude that our system can significantly reduce video traffic while ensuring high-quality surveillance.
