    Future surveillance systems will perform a number of automatic image and signal analysis operations. When the area of surveillance increases and large numbers of cameras and sensors are installed, the limits of the processing power in a centralised computing system are rapidly exhausted. Therefore future surveillance systems will most likely be based on distributed processing. Another demand for the distributed processing rises from the fact that digital cameras rapidly replace analog cameras, therefore the compression and encryption of data, and local adjustments already necessitate major local processing power, in addition to local intelligence. Efficient software tools are needed for the assessment and building such distributed surveillance systems. This work will report some results from a European project SUBITO, where automated surveillance is being developed.
