Real-time automatic activity recognition is an important area of research in the field of Computer Vision with plenty of applications in surveillance, gaming, entertainment and automobile safety. Because of advances in wireless networks and camera technologies, distributed camera networks are becoming more prominent. Distributed camera networks offer complimentary views of scenes and hence are better suited for real-time surveillance applications. They are robust to camera failures and in-complete field of views.;In a camera network, fusing information from multiple cameras is an important problem, especially when one doesn't have knowledge of subjects orientation with respect to the camera and when arrangement of cameras is not symmetric. The objective of this dissertation is to design a information fusion technique for camera networks and to apply them in the contenxt of surveillance and safety applications (in coal-mines).
