The multi-modal multi-sensor PROMETHEUS database was created in support of research and development activities [PROMETHEUS (FP7-ICT-214901): http://www.prometheus-FP7.eu] aiming at the creation of a framework for monitoring and interpretation of human behaviors in unrestricted indoor and outdoor environments. The distinctiveness of the PROMETHEUS database comes from the unique sensor sets, used in the various recording scenarios, but also from the database design, which covers a range of real-world applications, correlated to smart-home automation and indoors/outdoors surveillance of public areas. Numerous single-person and multi-person scenarios, but also scenarios with interactions between groups of people, motivated by these applications were implemented with the help of skilled actors and supernumerary personnel. In these scenarios, the actors and personnel were instructed to implement a range of typical and atypical behaviors, and simulations of emergency and crisis situations. In summary, the database contains more than 4 h of synchronized recordings from heterogeneous sensors (an infrared motion detection sensor, thermal imaging cameras, overview/surveillance video cameras, close-view video cameras, a 3D camera, a stereoscopic camera, a general-purpose camcoder, microphone arrays, and motion capture equipment) collected in common setups, simulating smart-home environment, airport, and ATM security environment. Selected scenes of the database were annotated for the needs of human detection and tracking. The entire audio part of the database was annotated for the needs of sound event detection, sound source enumeration, emotion recognition, etc.
