Feature coding has been recently considered to facilitate intelligent video analysis for urban computing. Instead of raw videos, extracted features in the front-end are encoded and transmitted to the back-end for further processing. In this article, we present a lossless key-point sequence compression approach for efficient feature coding. The essence of this predict-and-encode strategy is to eliminate the spatial and temporal redundancies of key points in videos. Multiple prediction modes with an adaptive mode selection method are proposed to handle key-point sequences with various structures and motion. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme on four types of widely used key-point sequences in video analysis.
