A semantic event detection approach for soccer video based on perception concepts and finite state machines (2007)

Abstract A significant application area for automated video analysis technology is the generation of personalized highlights of sports events. Sports games are always composed of a range of significant events. Automatically detecting these events in a sports video can enable users to interactively select their own highlights. In this paper we propose a semantic event detection approach based on Perception Concepts and Finite State Machines to automatically detect significant events within soccer video. Firstly we define a Perception Concept set for soccer videos based on identifiable feature elements within a soccer video. Secondly we design PC-FSM models to describe semantic events in soccer videos. A particular strength of this approach is that users are able to design their own semantic events and transfer event detection into graph matching. Experimental results based on recorded soccer broadcasts are used to illustrate the potential of this approach.
