Title: METHOD FOR AUTOMATICALLY OPERATING A MONITORING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for automatically operating a monitoring system (60) for an area (74), in which sensor images of the area are taken by at least one optical sensor (66), wherein each sensor image taken is assigned an image-taking location; in which a visual map of the area (74) is prepared which includes the sensor images taken along with assigned image-taking locations; in which a three-dimensional model (42, 44) of the area (42, 44) is created on the basis of the visual map; in which at least one camera image is taken by at least one camera (62, 64, 72, 86) arranged in the area; in which the at least one camera image is compared with sensor images of the visual map; and in which the camera image is projected into the three-dimensional model, taking this comparison into account.
