The SAIVT-Campus Database is an abnormal event detection database captured on a university campus, where the abnormal events are caused by the onset of a storm. Contact Dr Simon Denman or Dr Jingxin Xu for more information.

In addition to citing our paper, we kindly request that the following text be included in an acknowledgements section at the end of your publications:
We would like to thank the SAIVT Research Labs at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for freely supplying us with the SAIVT-Campus database for our research.
Installing the SAIVT-Campus database

The SAIVT-Campus dataset is captured at the Queensland University of Technology, Australia.
It contains two video files from real-world surveillance footage without any actors:
- training_dataset.avi (the training dataset)
- test_dataset.avi (the test dataset).
This dataset contains a mixture of crowd densities and it has been used in the following paper for abnormal event detection:

This paper is also included with the database (Xu2012 - Activity analysis in complicated scenes using DFT coefficients of particle trajectories.pdf) Both video files are one hour in duration.
The normal activities include pedestrians entering or exiting the building, entering or exiting a lecture theatre (yellow door), and going to the counter at the bottom right. The abnormal events are caused by a heavy rain outside, and include people running in from the rain, people walking towards the door to exit and turning back, wearing raincoats, loitering and standing near the door and overcrowded scenes. The rain happens only in the later part of the test dataset.
As a result, we assume that the training dataset only contains the normal activities. We have manually made an annotation as below:
- the training dataset does not have abnormal scenes
- the test dataset separates into two parts: only normal activities occur from 00:00:00 to 00:47:16 abnormalities are present from 00:47:17 to 01:00:00. We annotate the time 00:47:17 as the start time for the abnormal events, as from this time on we have begun to observe people stop walking or turn back from walking towards the door to exit, which indicates that the rain outside the building has influenced the activities inside the building. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr Jingxin Xu.
