On the Optimal Placement of Multiple Visual Sensors

Optimal Placement of Multiple Visual Sensors Visual sensor arrays are used in many novel multimedia applications such as video surveillance, sensing rooms, assisted living or immersive conference rooms. Most of these applications require the layout of video sensors to assure a minimum level of image quality or image resolution. Thus, an important issue in designing visual sensor arrays is the appropriate placement of the cameras such that they achieve one or mulitple predefined goals and as video sensor arrays are getting larger, efficient camera placement strategies need to be developed.
