Welcome to the project-page of the IWT-TETRA project VIPER.

Project VIPER is a collaberation where the project partners will transfer a set of innovative state-of-the-art technologies to safety & security-related companies.

The challenges in camerabased security-applications are noticing incidents or abnormal behaviour which can compromise the safety of people, and alerting at this point. The goal is to evade the negative consequences of these situations.

To succeed we will need 2 components:

  1. a reliable way to detect persons in camera-images
  2. a system that can determine wether or not to alert in certain situations
