The analysis of ground activities involving vehicles and humans is of interest in airborne surveillance applications. The high spatiotemporal resolution of a video camera makes it the sensor of choice for such applications. In the past, video sensors were not preferred, precisely because of the high volume of data generated, which had to be processed manually for the most part. Further, the moving platform gives rise to numerous false alarms.
