Video analytics refers to process the videos intelligently. Video analytics has its most important usage in the field of the surveillance. Surveillance has been used in various areas and one of them is the detection of unintentional fall of patients, senior citizens and children which can cause serious injuries and health threats to children as well as to old persons. Developed countries are progressing in the Surveillance and activity monitoring. But there are limitation and facing problems under certain circumstances. Advancement in the field of computer vision and the prominent decrease in the prices of digital cameras assisted and motivated researchers to propose very useful algorithms for fall detection. The proposed research work is based on the combination of motion history images and eclipse centroid calculation to detect the fall efficiently. The proposed system provides very effective and efficient results on the video sequences of simulated falls.
