Vigilant-i Real Time Video Analytics Software identifies salient events
(From left) The Vigilant-i Real Time Video Analytic Software identifies fan activities during a football match. The software focuses on salient events such as a person on the edge of the pitch (red box). | Two People are detected in an vehicle only tunnel. | Two people are identified walking in opposite direction to the crowd flow (marked in blue). Video recordings from standard monitoring cameras contain mostly routine occurrences with a few frames that could be of interest to the operator or reviewer. A similar scenario occurs in snapshots of crowded places where due to the volume of human activity significant events could occur undetected. The Vigilant-i Real Time Video Analytic Software learns what is salient or inconsistent human behaviour, in any given environment or scene by developing observation models of activities. The Vigilant-i Real Time Video Analytic Software automatically identifies unexpected events in a real time video stream, guiding an active camera to record such events in high resolution. This allows the operator to determine whether each event presented requires further scrutiny and subsequent action. This provides security and safety teams with real time information allowing proactive decisions to be made which could prevent injury and loss of life. The Vigilant-I technology was developed in the European Project SEARISE – Smart Eyes: Attending and Recognizing Instances of Salient Events which was co-ordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute’s, Dr. Marina Kolesnik. The product development was undertaken by Fraunhofer and Lynceus, a technology company. The Vigilant-I underwent one year’s field testing at the ESPRIT Arena, Düsseldorf, Germany prior to its release.
