Abstract : This paper presents a novel and unsupervised approach for discovering "sudden" movements in video surveillance videos. The proposed approach automatically detects quick motions in a video, corresponding to any action. A set of possible actions is not required and the proposed method successfully detects potentially alarm-raising actions without training or camera calibration. Moreover, the system uses a group detection and event recognition framework to relate detected sudden movements and groups of people, and provide a semantical interpretation of the scene. We have tested our approach on a dataset of nearly 8 hours of videos recorded from two cameras in the Parisian subway for a European Project. For evaluation, we annotated 1 hour of sequences containing 50 sudden movements.
