Applications of intelligent video systems include:
- Tracking a moving target.
- Searching for an object.
- Counting instances of something, such as the number of customers entering a building.
- Identifying the geographic location of something or someone.
- Detecting suspicious activity and triggering alarms and/or alerts.
Intelligent video is increasingly common in IP surveillance systems. Other applications include marketing and education.
