快速入门:检测运动并在边缘设备上录制视频Quickstart: Detect motion and record video on edge devices

本快速入门介绍了如何在 IoT Edge 上使用实时视频分析来分析(模拟)IP 相机中的实时视频源。This quickstart shows you how to use Live Video Analytics on IoT Edge to analyze the live video feed from a (simulated) IP camera. 本快速入门介绍如何检测是否存在任何运动,如果存在,则将 MP4 视频剪辑录制到边缘设备上的本地文件系统中。It shows how to detect if any motion is present, and if so, record an MP4 video clip to the local file system on the edge device. 本快速入门将 Azure VM 用作 IoT Edge 设备,并且还使用模拟的实时视频流。The quickstart uses an Azure VM as an IoT Edge device and also uses a simulated live video stream.

本文基于用 C# 编写的示例代码。This article is based on sample code written in C#. 本文以检测运动并发出事件快速入门为基础。It builds on the Detect motion and emit events quickstart.



在安装 Azure IoT Tools 时,系统可能会提示安装 Docker。When installing Azure IoT Tools, you might be prompted to install Docker. 可以忽略此提示。Feel free to ignore the prompt.

观看示例视频Review the sample video

在为此快速入门设置 Azure 资源时,一个停车场短视频被复制到 Azure 中用作 IoT Edge 设备的 Linux VM 上。As you set up the Azure resources for this quickstart, a short video of a parking lot is copied to the Linux VM in Azure that's used as the IoT Edge device. 本教程将使用此视频文件模拟实时流。This video file will be used to simulate a live stream for this tutorial.

打开 VLC 媒体播放器等应用程序,选择 Ctrl+N,然后将此链接粘贴到停车场视频中并开始播放。Open an application like VLC media player, select Ctrl+N, and paste this link to the parking lot video to start playback. 大约在 5 秒的时候,一辆白色汽车在停车场间移动。At about the 5-second mark, a white car moves through the parking lot.

完成以下步骤,以使用 IoT Edge 上的实时视频分析功能检测汽车的运动,并从大约第 5 秒的标记处开始录制视频剪辑。Complete the following steps to use Live Video Analytics on IoT Edge to detect the motion of the car and record a video clip starting around the 5-second mark.



上图显示本快速入门中信号的流动方式。The preceding diagram shows how the signals flow in this quickstart. Edge 模块模拟托管实时流协议 (RTSP) 服务器的 IP 相机。An edge module simulates an IP camera that hosts a Real-Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) server. RTSP 源节点从该服务器拉取视频源,并将视频帧发送到运动检测处理器节点。An RTSP source node pulls the video feed from this server and sends video frames to the motion detection processor node. RTSP 源会将同一视频帧发送到信号入口处理器节点,该节点在被事件触发前会保持关闭状态。The RTSP source sends the same video frames to a signal gate processor node, which remains closed until it's triggered by an event.

当运动检测处理器检测到视频中的运动时,它会将事件发送到信号入口处理器节点,并触发该节点。When the motion detection processor detects motion in the video, it sends an event to the signal gate processor node, triggering it. 门会打开,并将这一状态保持到配置的时间结束为止,并将视频帧发送到文件接收器节点。The gate opens for the configured duration of time, sending video frames to the file sink node. 该接收器节点以 MP4 文件形式将视频录制到边缘设备上的本地文件系统中。This sink node records the video as an MP4 file on the local file system of your edge device. 该文件保存在配置的位置。The file is saved in the configured location.

在本快速入门中,请执行以下操作:In this quickstart, you will:

  1. 创建并部署媒体图。Create and deploy the media graph.

如果使用的是自己的边缘设备,而不是设置脚本预配的边缘设备,请转到你的边缘设备并使用管理员权限运行以下命令,以拉取并存储该快速入门所使用的示例视频文件:If you are using your own edge device instead of the one provisioned by our setup script, go to your edge device and run the following commands with admin rights, to pull and store the sample video file used for this quickstart:

mkdir /home/lvaadmin/samples
mkdir /home/lvaadmin/samples/input    
curl https://lvamedia.blob.core.windows.net/public/camera-300s.mkv > /home/lvaadmin/samples/input/camera-300s.mkv  
chown -R lvaadmin /home/lvaadmin/samples/  

查看 - 准备监视事件Review - Prepare for monitoring events

请确保已完成准备监视事件的步骤。Make sure you've completed the steps to Prepare to monitor events.

    ---------------  Response: GraphTopologyList - Status: 200  ---------------
      "value": []
    Executing operation WaitForInput
    Press Enter to continue

“终端”窗口将显示下一组直接方法调用:The TERMINAL window shows the next set of direct method calls:

  • 使用前面的 topologyUrl 调用 GraphTopologySetA call to GraphTopologySet that uses the topologyUrl
  • GraphInstanceSet 的调用,该调用使用以下正文:A call to GraphInstanceSet that uses the following body:
  "@apiVersion": "1.0",

  3. 媒体图将继续运行并打印结果。The media graph continues to run and print results. RTSP 模拟器不断循环源视频。The RTSP simulator keeps looping the source video. 若要停止媒体图,请返回“终端”窗口,并选择 Enter。To stop the media graph, return to the TERMINAL window and select Enter.

    接下来的一系列调用会清理资源:The next series of calls cleans up the resources:

    • 调用 GraphInstanceDeactivate 停用图形实例。A call to GraphInstanceDeactivate deactivates the graph instance.
    • 调用 GraphInstanceDelete 删除该实例。A call to GraphInstanceDelete deletes the instance.

解释结果Interpret results

运行媒体图时,来自运动检测器处理器节点的结果将通过 IoT 中心接收器节点发送到 IoT 中心。When you run the media graph, the results from the motion detector processor node pass through the IoT Hub sink node to the IoT hub. Visual Studio Code 的“输出”窗口中显示的消息包含 body 部分和 applicationProperties 部分。The messages you see in the OUTPUT window of Visual Studio Code contain a body section and an applicationProperties section. 有关详细信息,请参阅创建和读取 IoT 中心消息For more information, see Create and read IoT Hub messages.

RecordingStarted 事件RecordingStarted event

检测到运动时,将激活信号入口处理器节点,媒体图中的文件接收器节点将开始写入 MP4 文件。When motion is detected, the signal gate processor node is activated, and the file sink node in the media graph starts to the write an MP4 file. 文件接收器节点发送操作事件。The file sink node sends an operational event. type 设置为 motion,指示它是运动检测处理器的结果。The type is set to motion to indicate that it's a result from the motion detection processor. eventTime 值是运动发生的 UTC 时间。The eventTime value is the UTC time at which the motion occurred. 有关该过程的详细信息,请参阅本快速入门中的概述部分。For more information about this process, see the Overview section in this quickstart.

以下是此消息的示例:Here's an example of this message:

    "eventTime": "2020-05-21T05:37:27.713Z",
    "dataVersion": "1.0"

在上面的消息中:In the preceding message:

  • applicationProperties 中的 subject 引用生成消息的媒体图中的节点。In applicationProperties, subject references the node in the media graph from which the message was generated. 在本例中,该消息来自文件接收器节点。In this case, the message originates from the file sink node.
  • applicationProperties 中的 eventType 指示此事件是操作事件。In applicationProperties, eventType indicates that this event is operational.
  • eventTime 值为事件发生的时间。The eventTime value is the time when the event occurred. 此时间为 MediaSessionEstablished 后视频开始流动后的 5 到 6 秒。This time is 5 to 6 seconds after MediaSessionEstablished and after video starts to flow. 该时间对应于汽车开始驶入停车场时的第 5-6 秒标记处。This time corresponds to the 5-to-6-second mark when the car started to move into the parking lot.
  • body 部分包含有关操作事件的数据。The body section contains data about the operational event. 在本例中,数据包括 outputTypeoutputLocationIn this case, the data comprises outputType and outputLocation.

  • outputLocation 值是 MP4 文件在边缘模块中的位置。The outputLocation value is the location of the MP4 file in the edge module.

RecordingStopped 和 RecordingAvailable 事件RecordingStopped and RecordingAvailable events

如果在图形拓扑中检查信号入口处理器节点的属性,你会看到激活时间设置为 5 秒。If you examine the properties of the signal gate processor node in the graph topology, you see that the activation times are set to 5 seconds. 因此,在收到 RecordingStarted 事件后约 5 秒,你将获得:So about 5 seconds after the RecordingStarted event is received, you get:

  • RecordingStopped 事件,指示录制已停止。A RecordingStopped event, indicating that the recording has stopped.
  • RecordingAvailable 事件,指示现在可查看 MP4 文件。A RecordingAvailable event, indicating that the MP4 file can now be used for viewing.

这两个事件的发出时间通常彼此相隔数秒。The two events are typically emitted within seconds of each other.

播放 MP4 文件剪辑Play the MP4 clip

通过使用 OUTPUT_VIDEO_FOLDER_ON_DEVICE 密钥,将 MP4 文件写入在 .env 文件中配置的边缘设备上的目录中。The MP4 files are written to a directory on the edge device that you configured in the .env file by using the OUTPUT_VIDEO_FOLDER_ON_DEVICE key. 如果使用了默认值,则结果应位于 /var/media/ 文件夹中。If you used the default value, then the results should be in the /var/media/ folder.

播放 MP4 文件剪辑:To play the MP4 clip:

  1. 转到资源组,找到 VM 进行连接。Go to your resource group, find the VM, and then connect.



  2. 使用设置 Azure 资源时生成的凭据登录。Sign in by using the credentials that were generated when you set up your Azure resources.

  3. 在命令提示符下,转到相关目录。At the command prompt, go to the relevant directory. 默认位置为 /var/media。The default location is /var/media. 应会在目录中看到 MP4 文件。You should see the MP4 files in the directory.


  4. 使用安全复制 (SCP) 将文件复制到本地计算机。Use Secure Copy (SCP) to copy the files to your local machine.

  5. 使用 VLC 媒体播放器或任何其他 MP4 文件播放器播放这些文件。Play the files by using VLC media player or any other MP4 player.
