Software Architecture for Streaming and Packet Loss Recovery Schemes in Road Monitoring Surveillance Camera Control Systems


Background/Objectives: This paper is about software architecture for security system design using surveillance control system. Various challenges are faced in surveillance control systems using monitoring cameras like packet loose, latency, quality of Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) data, inconsistency and conflict among multiple sources etc. In this paper an attempt is made to solve some of the problems which are faced by surveillance control systems like road monitoring systems. Methods/Statistical analysis: Experimentation setup is proposed for the given software architecture and algorithm is developed for system. The Digital Video (DV) streaming system is a client-server model for the real-time delivery of DV streams over Internet Protocol (IP) networks based on Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) / Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP) protocol. The system includes two PCs, one at the server side and one at the client side, connected together with a Fast Ethernet LAN. Server has got a fire wire interface for capturing the data. Capturing device is connected to a DV converter (Canopus ADVC 1000) through a composite conversion cable. Converted DV stream is given to the server through IEEE 1394 interface. In the road monitoring systems such architecture is very much needed to recover from packet losses and it will help in reducing road accidents. Findings: In this paper attempt is made to propose the best possible architecture for arranging surveillance camera for getting the best streaming. Packet loss recovery schemes are proposed in the camera control systems which are used for monitoring roads and it can minimize the death rate using these monitoring camera systems. Applications/Improvements: The proposed software architecture is used in packet loss recovery systems of surveillance systems and very useful application for security systems which are used for monitoring road and it can reduce deaths caused due to road accidents.
