The automatic detection and recognition of anomalous events in crowded and complex scenes on video are the research objectives of this paper. The main challenge in this system is to create models for detecting such events due to their changeability and the territory of the context of the scenes. Due to these challenges, this paper proposed a novel HOME FAST (Histogram of Orientation, Magnitude, and Entropy with Fast Accelerated Segment Test) spatiotemporal feature extraction approach based on optical flow information to capture anomalies. This descriptor performs the video analysis within the smart surveillance domain and detects anomalies. In deep learning, the training step learns all the normal patterns from the high-level and low-level information. The events are described in testing and, if they differ from the normal pattern, are considered as anomalous. The overall proposed system robustly identifies both local and global abnormal events from complex scenes and solves the problem of detection under various transformations with respect to the state-of-the-art approaches. The performance assessment of the simulation outcome validated that the projected model could handle different anomalous events in a crowded scene and automatically recognize anomalous events with success.
