Battery lifetime is critical for wireless video sensors. To enable battery-powered wireless video sensors, low-power design is required. In this paper, we consider applying multi-view summarization to wireless video sensors to remove redundant contents such that the compression and transmission power can be reduced. A low-complexity online multi-view video summarization scheme is proposed. Experiments show that the proposed summarization method successfully reduces the video content while keeping important events. A power analysis of the system also shows that a significant amount of energy can be saved.
