IP camera images are available on internet. Despite its live surveillance function, those cameras never before had been creatively used in advertising. By first time we applied IP camera technology into online gaming: let people bet on the real-life scenarios via IP camera.
How can we bet on real-time traffic? We grab the IP camera images from a live webcam located at Slovenia and analysis the image by an remote application on a PC. Technically, we mark 18 sampler areas on each side of the road, and compare each sampler area by pixels to find the difference between live image and "reference" image. The "reference" image is a clear road image. When a car appears on the road and the samplers difference hit the result requirements, the application sends a result message to the server. Therefore, our system can check the players' bet (left or right) and update the result instantly.
Another example is to bet on which lift door open next. We hijack the CCTV of a commercial building in China. In the live images, we compare sampler area on each lift door by pixels, finding the difference between the live image and “doors-closed” image.
