45. The video analytic processing should be able to run on top of a server or to be virtualized using virtualization technologies.

46.The system can offer the following video analytic:

–   Object Detection – identifies people, cars, busses, trucks, motorcycles and animals in a defined area/zone.

–   Face recognition – an algorithm for human identification and verification, based on the facial recognition as well as the age and gender estimation. The algorithm creates a database of all faces captured by video cameras and lets you search the database for similar faces.

–   License plate recognition – an algorithm for license plate recognition. Video streams can be processed to search for and recognize license plate numbers in the frame. These license plate numbers are saved to a database and associated with the relevant recorded video. The database is searchable. License plate numbers can be compared to lists in real time, with actions performed (or not performed) depending on whether or not a license plate is found in the list. Aside from license plates, system can recognize the make, model, and color of vehicle, as well as the country and direction of movement of the car.

–   Traffic Analytics – intended for the calculation of intensity and determination of traffic structure classify the types of vehicles (car, bus, truck, bicycle, motorbike). It also counts people and provides statistical report with graphs and pies by hours, days, weeks, months.

–   Crowd Detection – estimates the number of people within a given area in real time and triggers an alarm when a specified number of people (capacity) or a specified percentage of people (occupancy) is reached.

–   Hard Hat Detection – detects people not wearing helmets, records video and sends alarms.

–   Heat Map – color visual representation of data analysis of customer activity presented by color visual representation of data (warm and cold zones).

–   Age & Gender Detection – determines the gender of customers and their approximate age by detecting and analyzing the faces of visitors.

–   Motion Detection – captures any movement in the scene. The following rules can be applied: line crossing, loitering, intrusion, abandoned object, disappearance of an object.

–   Smoke & Fire Detection – recognizes smoke and fire in the image.

–   Smart Tracking System – search people by attributes (color of clothes, bag, hair, hat, gender, and age).

–   Body Movement Detection – identifies a person in different positions: sitting, standing, walking, lying, getting up.

–   Wagon Identification – detection and recognition of wagon UIC numbers.

–   Smart Parking – management of parking lot, detection of license plates of entering vehicles, recognition of model, direction of movement, and payment status of the car.

47.It is possible to setup several “lists” in the database of the analytics platform. A list contains License plates or faces and related data.

48. The analytics platform detects license plates or faces in the live stream provided by the cameras and shall match them against the license plates and faces stored in data-base of the analytics platform

49. When there is a match, an event should be sent by the system to the video management system. Additional data such as the camera and the time of detection should be included in the event provided to the video management system.

50. When the event provided by the analytics platform triggers an alarm in the video management system, the following content shall appear in the alarm panel of the VMS:

–   A cropped extract of the original image.

–   The corresponding face or license plate taken from the database of the analytics platform to allow the operator to compare the captured image with the reference image from data-base

–   Additional data related to the face or license plate stored in the data-base of the analytics platform (e.g. name of person etc.)

51.  All events and meta-data are displayed in the archive on a timeline of corresponding camera of the video management system as an icon. If pointing the mouse arrow at this icon, a frame with the image of an object that triggered an alarm should appear.
