In video database systems, one of the most important methods for discriminating the videos is by using the objects and the perception of spatial and temporal relations that exist between objects in the desired videos. In this paper, we propose a new spatio-temporal knowledge representation called 3D C-string. The knowledge structure of 3D C-string, extended from the 2D C+-string, uses the projections of objects to represent spatial and temporal relations between the objects in a video. Moreover, it can keep track of the motions and size changes of the objects in a video. The string generation and video reconstruction algorithms for the 3D C-string representation of video objects are also developed. By introducing the concept of the template objects and nearest former objects, the string generated by the string generation algorithm is unique for a given video and the video reconstructed from a given 3D C-string is unique too. This approach can provide us an easy and efficient way to retrieve, visualize and manipulate video objects in video database systems. Finally, some experiments are performed to show the performance of the proposed algorithms. ? 2002 Pattern Recognition Society. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
