Virtual Grounding Point Concept for Detecting Abnormal and Normal Events in Home Care Monitoring Systems

Abstract : Featured Application This research can be applied to home care monitoring systems to assist in providing care for dependent persons by analyzing abnormal events or falls. Abstract In this paper, an innovative home care video monitoring system for detecting abnormal and normal events is proposed by introducing a virtual grounding point (VGP) concept. To be specific, the proposed system is composed of four main image processing components: (1) visual object detection, (2) feature extraction, (3) abnormal and normal event analysis, and (4) the decision-making process. In the object detection component, background subtraction is first achieved using a specific mixture of Gaussians (MoG) to model the foreground in the form of a low-rank matrix factorization. Then, a theory of graph cut is applied to refine the foreground. In the feature extraction component, the position and posture of the detected person is estimated by using a combination of the virtual grounding point, along with its related centroid, area, and aspect ratios. In analyzing the abnormal and normal events, the moving averages (MA) for the extracted features are calculated. After that, a new curve analysis is computed, specifically using the modified difference (MD). The local maximum (l(max)), local minimum (l(min)), and half width value (v(hw)) are determined on the observed curve of the modified difference. In the decision-making component, the support vector machine (SVM) method is applied to detect abnormal and normal events. In addition, a new concept called period detection (PD) is proposed to robustly detect the abnormal events. The experimental results were obtained using the Le2i fall detection dataset to confirm the reliability of the proposed method, and that it achieved a high detection rate.
