Surveillance cameras are widely applied for indoor occupancy measurement and human movement perception, which benefit for building energy management and social security. To address the challenges of limited view angle of single camera as well as lacking of inter-camera collaboration, this study presents a non-overlapping multi-camera system to enlarge the surveillance area and devotes to retrieve the same person appeared from different camera views. The system is deployed in an office building

By training a deep convolutional neural network, the proposed system first extracts the appearance feature embeddings of each personal image, which detected from different cameras, for similarity comparison. Then, a stochastic inter-camera transition matrix is associated with appearance feature for further improving the person re-identification ranking results. Finally, a noise-suppression explanation is given for analyzing the matching improvements. This paper expands the scope of indoor movement perception based on non-overlapping multiple cameras and improves the accuracy of pedestrian re-identification without introducing additional types of sensors.
