To compete and thrive in today’s crowded markets, businesses and institutions need to work smarter. Based on a technology called Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) ‘trains’ computers to do tasks faster and better than what human beings can do. For example, in the application of video technology, AI makes it possible for security and business systems to recognise people, vehicles, as well as identify customer interests and certain scenarios that may sometime have human oversight like shelf items are running out of stock, and more. This means it’s now possible to automate many key surveillance tasks and business processes.
Work smarter and safer with Hikvision
When it comes to delivering the insights that today’s organisations need, Hikvision is a pioneer in security and beyond. Our industry leading smart cameras and infrastructure solutions, engineered with AI technology integrate a range of tools to support smarter decision making, from people counting and facial recognition to vehicle recognition and automated security alerts.
The application for Hikvision’s smart technologies is virtually limitless. We help banks protect employees, customers, branch offices and ATMs. We help retailers understand footfall in their stores and optimise their merchandising strategies, and we help city authorities reduce congestion and pollution with smart traffic management solutions.
One partner with a world of insights
Hikvision offers a broad range of technologies needed to help organisations work smarter – from next-generation cameras equipped with AI and deep learning technologies to smart ‘edge’ infrastructure and deep data analytics capabilities in the cloud. As such, we give one point of access to a world of insights to help organisations work smarter, and crucially protect people and assets from security threats.
Powerful new technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence have recently been developed to offer an entirely new level of security. Video capture and recording solutions today can record facial images and compare them with incredible accuracy. Hikvision is right there at the forefront of this exciting new horizon in protecting our communities, loved ones and property.
There are many ways to use facial recognition to keep people safe, enhance business operations, as well as improve our everyday lives with optimised services. Here’s a glimpse into how it works and how we can use it to make the world safer each time it’s needed.
This technology serves the best where suspect identification is most critical, including government and diplomacy buildings: borders and customs areas: travel nodes such as air and sea ports, just to name a few. Also, law enforcement personnel will find a more efficient way to investigate incidents with advanced footage retrieval using recognition capabilities and vehicle traits analysis algorithms.
Time & attendance reports
Now there is a better way to track attendance. Based on facial recognition technology, this new method is quicker, safer and more accurate. Thanks to this technology, employees no longer need to remind themselves to carry ID cards all the time and professors will no longer need to take roll one by one. A great tool at educational campuses, factories, and events and conferences.
Loyal VIP customers are enormously valuable to commercial entities, but the service staff cannot always identify them immediately. Intelligent facial recognition cameras, however, can provide unique opportunities that were previously unavailable. When customers choose to participate in VIP programs, marketing promotions or other incentives, facial recognition technology will give retailers accurate tools to identify VIPs and loyal customers so staff can provide the right kind of service at the right time. Hikvision facial recognition can create new possibilities to optimize next marketing programs.
Using the Blacklist alarm provides extra help to law enforcement personnel to identify known suspects in designated areas and secure public safety. For commercial customers, a list of interesting people can be used in a similar way to trigger attention and action needed if ‘unwanted’ people are detected at sports venues, malls and hotels etc. This AI technology is applicable in banks, shops, airports and casinos.
Vehicle identification management applications
The ability to identify vehicles can provide major benefits for local authorities, businesses and a range of other organisations. It becomes possible, for instance, to improve entrance management to schools, offices and factories, or to implement congestion charging strategies in city centres. Vehicle recognition technology also supports a wide range of traffic management solutions that keep vehicles moving in busy urban areas, improve road safety and speed up responses to road traffic incidents and offences. As of now, this technology is mainly reflected on vehicle number plate recognition and vehicle feature recognition.
Recognise vehicle number plates in real time
The Hikvision ANPR application captures a vehicle’s license plate in real time, and compares and/ or adds it to a pre-defined list. Once a number plate is recognised and stored, an appropriate action is taken such as opening a gate, adding a cost, or generating an alert.
Hikvision’s vehicle recognition feature uses a deep learning algorithm to distinguish between small and large vehicles, with the added ability to detect the make, model and colour. The system can be programmed to search for anomalies such as cars travelling in designated bus lanes, or vehicles driving without license plates. This AI application enables entrance, exit management, parking lot management and traffic violation management.
