Brief description Infiltrated objects represent a very high security threat in critical areas such as airports and train stations. In order to neutralise such a threat, this project will develop new automatic technologies capable of detecting infiltrated objects in sensitive areas in real time, analysing the movements of their original carriers in the nearby areas, and raising attention accordingly. The technologies will be based on the automatic analysis of camera videos made by computers without the need for assessing or storing the identities of common passers-by. The potential of application is huge extending beyond airports and train stations to any public areas.
