CAVA: Context-aware Real-time Video Analytics


Cameras are found everywhere in the Internet of Things (IoT). We propose a scalable platform using SAVI for the continuous collection of context-aware processed video from mobile devices. Users can perform efficient context-based searches on the total collection of labeled videos. In this project  we discuss the challenges and benefit.s for video upload, video labeling and context-based search on the SAVI network.
