Surveillance systems can really benefit from the integration of multiple and heterogeneous sensors. In this paper we describe an innovative sensing floor. Thanks to its low cost and ease of installation, the floor is suitable for both private and public environments, from narrow zones to wide areas. The floor is made adding a sensing layer below commercial floating tiles. The sensor is scalable, reliable, and completely invisible to the users. The temporal and spatial resolutions of the data are high enough to identify the presence of people, to recognize their behavior and to detect events in a privacy compliant way. Experimental results on a real prototype implementation confirm the potentiality of the framework.
