The need for enhanced security and demand for gathering insights from customer behavior is driving the video analytics market globally. The market for video analytics is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 20.6% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023. The global video analytics market was valued at US$ 1,709.0 Mn in 2014. Some of the key factors driving the growth of the video analytics market include the expanding range of vertical applications, a growing trend toward bringing retail outlets and commercial premises under video analytics due to security concerns and the need to monitor and understand the environment around the premises.
Avigilon Corporation (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, showcased their new Avigilon Unusual Motion Detection (“UMD”) video analytics technology at ISC West 2017 last week. UMD is an advanced artificial intelligence (“AI”) technology that brings a new level of automation to surveillance. This technology is designed to continuously learn what typical activity in the scene looks like and focus the operator’s attention on atypical events needing further investigation.
Intel Movidius, the world leader in embedded machine vision technology, is helping bring artificial intelligence (AI) to video surveillance cameras.
Movidius participated in an announcement from Dahua Technology USA in which Dahua outlined how it is using Movidius’ Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU) technology to power select Dahua video surveillance cameras. These cameras will go beyond traditional functions such as monitoring and recording by offering advanced video analysis features, such as crowd density monitoring, stereoscopic vision, facial recognition, people counting, behavior analysis, and detection of illegally parked vehicles.
At ISC West 2017, Bosch Security Systems will introduce new intelligent devices, demonstrate the power of integrated security and communications solutions, and highlight products and services to help integrators increase revenue. Visitors to the Bosch booth will see a completely new portfolio of IP-cameras, video analytics that extend surveillance beyond security, services that create recurring monthly revenue opportunities for dealers, and an innovative all-in-one wireless multi-sensor that can be configured as a door/window contact, water, or tilt sensor.
Founding sponsor of Robolliance, Sharp Electronics Corporation, will also take part in the Unmanned Security Expo by featuring its Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (“A-UGV”). Debuted in September 2016, the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multi-terrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio, and environmental data while providing a visible deterrent. The data it collects can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety, and maintenance inspections that will help organizations meet the challenges of an ever-changing security landscape by augmenting a skilled guard force.
This year’s ISC West will be the first-ever Unmanned Security Expo focused on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs), and various systems to support robotic technology. The Expo will include a fully functional flight cage and robotics demonstration area, booth exhibits and free education sessions. Robolliance, a forum for technology partners and industry experts in robotics, surveillance, and security created to advance the understanding and awareness of the Autonomous Robotics marketplace, is one of the four primary supporters of the Unmanned Security Expo.
StoneLock® Pro’s proprietary near infrared (NIR) technology measures over 2,000 points of reflectivity at the sub-dermal level and creates an encrypted reference file that never contains personally identifiable information (PII), making it less susceptible to typical security and privacy-laden vulnerabilities associated with photo-based facial recognition systems. With an accuracy rate of less than one in a quarter million, (less than 0.0004% False Acceptance Rate) it is ideal for users who recognize the inherent weaknesses of standalone access badges or PINs that can get lost, stolen, or shared.
Free2Move, a mobility app for car-sharing providers including Car2Go, Flinkster, Multicity, Zipcar, and DriveNow, has selected the Jumio Netverify Trusted Identity as a Service to verify customer driver’s licences quickly and easily. Free2Move aggregates local available car share options on a mobile app, providing registered Free2Move users access to local car share providers. Customers register by scanning their photo ID using the camera of their PC or mobile device, and Netverify’s computer vision technology then extracts customer data from the ID.
Avigilon Corporation (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, announced that it will preview the new Avigilon Face and Vehicle Appearance Search video analytics technologies at ISC West 2017, Sands Expo and Convention Center booth 22043, in Las Vegas, USA, from April 5 to 7, 2017.
