Coast Surveillance System Under Development at University

SAN DIEGO—A coastal surveillance system is scheduled to be installed along a 3.5-mile stretch of the San Diego coastline and be linked through a computer network for homeland security purposes. Federal money will support the system, which will be developed at the Computer Vision and Robotics Research Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego.

Mohan Trivedi, director of the university’s research laboratory, says homeland security has become a major focus for the group. “We are making great strides in the area of computer vision, and we expect all of these projects to yield real-world results in the next 12 to 18 months.”

The system will include 360-degree cameras and will be programmed for constant surveillance. Trivedi says human operators will only be needed when suspicious activity is detected along the coast or offshore.
