Several ACVT members were recently awarded ARC grants for research starting in 2010

A Discovery grant was awarded to Dr AR Dick, Dr H Detmold & Prof P Torr for ‘Tracking targets in large scale surveillance camera networks’:

The research is expected to provide a significant boost in the effectiveness of safety and security measures for public facilities and open spaces that are monitored by surveillance cameras. The general public benefits from this through a decreased need for intrusive security measures, and increased deterrence of crime and anti-social behaviour. This capability is in demand worldwide for both public camera networks, whose usefulness is currently limited by the difficulty of monitoring them. We therefore anticipate considerable commercial interest in Australia and internationally.
