The Artificial Intelligence Revolution Has Begun
Digifort IPXAnalytics is a software that uses Artificial Intelligence to learn and detect events in surveillance cameras. Artificial intelligence is based on artificial neural networks, which are algorithms that try to mimic the behavior of the human brain. Operationally we can consider a neural network as a “processing box” that can be trained so that from one input dataset it can generate one or more outputs. It is then possible to “teach” and “train” the application to recognize a specific object in various images. Or you can ask it to count how many times the object appears. Compared to video analysis software on the market today, IPXAnalytics can reduce the amount of “false positive” alarms considerably. Today the platform can detect over 80 objects such as persons, boats, cars, motorcycles, trucks, planes, cellphone, notebooks, television, suspects, weapon, long gun, motorcycle helmet, (person) with a helmet or without safety helmet - PPE, etc. Through constant "teaching" and "training" the number of objects will continue to grow while improving their accuracy and performance.
Digifort IPXAnalytics Applications
Unauthorised Personnel Detection
Areas or places that require an exclusive surveillance post due to hazardous operation or level of access control can use Digifort IPX-Analytics. One of the applications would be, for example, a hazardous area where people are prohibited walk in while there is trucks. You can configure the system to trigger an alarm when detecting any presence of person immediately, as pictured on the left.
Cell Phone Detection
Another example would be a ban on the use of mobile devices in specific areas. In this example, we can combine object identification conditions such as “person” + “mobile”. The system recognizes the “person” object, but if it does not recognize the “cellphone” object as well, the alert is not triggered. The moment the system recognizes both objects, an alarm is triggered immediately.
Digifort IPXAnalytics is designed to address situations where there are suspicious and/or blatant behaviors such as a person entering a pharmacy, bank, supermarket without removing the motorcycle helmet. In such situations, it is possible to configure an alert when the software recognizes the “helmet” or “person with weapon” object, among others. Weapons detection technology has become a valuable tool that many security professionals are giving more consideration to, in light of the gun violence tragedies we see in our society on a regular basis. It’s important for schools, facilities, and places of public gathering to become more proactive and save lives and minimize tragedy. Detecting an Active Shooter early can Enhance Emergency or Law enforcement Response.
PPE Control: Safety Helmet Use
The use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is fundamental in the fight for the prevention and protection of workers. Therefore, ensuring that the protective helmet is in use is of paramount importance. In this way Digifort IPXAnalytics is able to identify whether the worker is wearing the helmet or not, regardless of the helmet color.
Using Digifort IPXAnalytics, you can determine the minimum or a maximum number of objects allowed in a given area. For example, in the image below we have a parking lot. Through the system, we can program an alarm that warns when the car spaces are all filled. Thus, the operator upon receiving the notice may take appropriate action. Another application would be for controlling queues or areas. The maximum number of people per row (or area) and the maximum waiting time can be determined. Thus, when the amount and time are exceeded an alarm is triggered for the operator. Monitor occupancy by applying In/Out counting logic, you can have the live count of how many people are inside a store or an office. When there is more than one entrance, it will be a total sum of those entrances. By crossing the line you can trigger an alarm when some object is crossing the line and keep counting the events.
Falls are a common occurrence for seniors, and, as many caregivers know, they can be very frightening. A slip and fall injury, is a premises liability claim. Apart from genuine cases, fake falls to claim insurance money are common, costing hundreds of thousand dollars in settlement costs. Fall detection can save seniors lives and ensure you always have the evidence to call out the fake claims.
Similar to our last example of hazardous areas, Digifort IPXAnalytics can be used for perimeter intrusion alarms. This allows you to configure the alert only for the objects that you need. As an example, we can determine that in a certain fence there can be no presence of animals. Therefore, if a person approaches, the alarm will not be triggered, but if any animal is approached, the system will trigger an alert.
You can activate a Motion Heatmap to highlight in your image the most movemented areas.
Social Distance Monitoring
Using Distance logic you can trigger alarms if you have two or more objects near each other more than X metre apart. It has never been more critical during Coronavirus pandemic in our efforts to protecting the public and stopping the spread of Coronavirus and helping businesses get back to a 'new normal'.
