Video Analysis for Investigation of Criminal and Terrorist Activities
VICTORIA is a 3-year EU-funded project which addresses this need and will deliver an ethical and legally compliant video analysis platform that will accelerate the video analysis tasks of Law Enforcement Agencies. We are developing and exploring a 4D crime scene reconstruction technology, enabling the investigator to view simultaneously and easily navigate through a multitude of video recording of the same crime/terrorist scene.
There are 5 main objectives of the VICTORIA project, related to technology development and usability, training, sustainability and EU legislation:
Develop a TRL-6 video analysis technology that will boost the LEAs' video investigation capacity
Increase significantly the usability of video analysis tools for legal investigations
Create a business model and ecosystem allowing the video investigation field to grow and prospect
To encourage innovation and market growth in the video investigation domain, VICTORIA will:
Train LEA investigators in the use of advanced video investigation tools
Ensure that the VICTORIA tools are in line with EU Legal-Ethical-Privacy rules
This work has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program in the context of the VICTORIA project under grant agreement No. 740754.
