This paper proposes a HMM-based approach for detecting abnormal situations in some simulated ATM (Automated Teller Machine) scenarios, by using a network of heterogeneous sensors. The applied sensor network comprises of cameras and microphone arrays. The idea is to use such a sensor network in order to detect the normality or abnormality of the scenes in terms of whether a robbery is happening or not. The normal or abnormal event detection is performed in two stages. Firstly, a set of

The low-level classifiers are namely Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), crowd and audio analysis. Then the obtained LLFs are fed to a concurrent Hidden Markov Model in order to classify the state of the system (what is called here as high-level classification). The attained experimental results validate the applicability and effectiveness of the using heterogeneous sensor network to detect abnormal events in the security applications.
