With the advent of powerful hardware components in the IT sector, new exciting possibilities arise with the use of AI for video surveillance solutions. From now on, it is possible to use market-ready systems that independently recognize and evaluate certain patterns and processes.
The areas of application range from security-related aspects to marketing aspects. Authorities, security companies, the retail sector, but also industrial sectors are already benefiting from the numerous possibilities that implementing AI in video surveillance brings with it.
Possibilities of AI monitoring
The functionality of a video surveillance system in combination with artificial intelligence can be described in four steps. Each individual step can operate as a “system” independently of the others. However, when the complexity of a requirement increases, more processes are needed to achieve a perfect result.
Intelligent video surveillance automatically detects objects and people in all light and environmental conditions.
The evaluation of the recognized patterns is the actual AI function. Here, for example, in the retail area it is possible to recognize whether a shopping cart is empty or full. In the security area, for example, body posture and movement patterns can be identified.
In this step, detected patterns and motion sequences are compared with already known models. If a certain event occurs, the system can issue an automatic message.
Message to recipient
The final step is to route the messages to a wide variety of recipients, such as gatekeepers, control centers, alarm systems, randomly placed network loudspeakers, and many more.
Microcontroller application for customers
The use of Arduino and Raspberry Pi as rapid prototyping platforms allows us to turn ideas into reality quickly and easily. For example through the use of GPS extensions or radio modules. In connection with network technology of modern IP video surveillance solutions, undreamt-of possibilities are offered.
Visualization of measurement values
Measurement and display of various values in the video stream (temperature, humidity, etc.)
Reliable control of machines and processes using integrated object recognition on cameras or VMS
Interfaces to other systems
Connection of the video surveillance system to third-party systems via dry contact, MQTT and HTTP
Implementation of individual customer requirements with in-house mirocontroller programming
