We explore a location based approach for behavior modeling and abnormality detection. In contrast to the conventional object based approach where an object may first be tagged, identified, classified, and tracked, we proceed directly with event characterization and behavior modeling at the pixel(s) level based on motion labels obtained from background subtraction. Since events are temporally and spatially dependent, this calls for techniques that account for statistics of spatiotemporal events. Based on motion labels, we learn co-occurrence statistics for normal events across space-time. For one (or many) key pixel(s), we estimate a co-occurrence matrix that accounts for any two active labels which co-occur simultaneously within the same spatiotemporal volume. This co-occurrence matrix is then used as a potential function in a Markov random field (MRF) model to describe the probability of observations within the same spatiotemporal volume. The MRF distribution implicitly accounts for speed, direction, as well as the average size of the objects passing in front of each key pixel. Furthermore, when the spatiotemporal volume is large enough, the co-occurrence distribution contains the average normal path followed by moving objects. The learned normal co-occurrence distribution can be used for abnormal detection. Our method has been tested on various outdoor videos representing various challenges.
