Sentinel

Intelligent Video Analytics using cameras for people tracking, counting and searching

Sentinel tracks people moving through a venue and allows human detection and recognition. It allows CCTV video analytics: existing cameras can be integrated with Sentinel, and this video tracking technology recognizes individuals, collecting their location and movements over time. Sentinel allows remote surveillance and it can be integrated as a component for video analytics software and CCTV security solutions. Sentinel processes video streams, on a local or remote server, and can leverage already deployed video infrastructures.

How it can be used

Sample applications

Get more info about this product:

  • Queue length monitoring: Sentinel enabled queue analytics, useful in settings like retail cash-and-wrap registers and airport security lines. Automatic queue monitoring provides customers with useful information that reduces the anxiety of waiting in lines.

  • Retail Analytics and Visitors’ behavior: Build a remote surveillance solution to analyze visitors’ behavior by following the movements of people inside venues, identifying and tracking them by their visual appearance, often complementing facial recognition.

  • Video Camera People Searching: Sentinel allows Appearance Encoding, to create applications to enable rapidly searching video streams for instances of people whose appearance matches that of a specific subject.

  • People counting: Implement solutions that estimate the number of people in venues such as museums, trade shows and shopping malls. Counts per sector can reflect visitors’ numbers at different times per day, week and month.

  • People tracking and multi-person tracking: Build a custom system that enables monitoring people in view of a video camera, and follow their movements. Video re-identification allows following specific individuals over time.

How it works

Interested in this product:

Sentinel is a computer vision based tracking system for video analytics and human tracking.

  • Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network are applied to computer vision and object detection algorithms.
  • Accurate detection and tracking of people using common CCTV cameras.
  • Appearance encoding algorithms to precisely detect and track people.
  • Video re-identification across multiple cameras.
  • Location of each person in WSG-84 coordinates (latitude, longitude), or as “x, y, z”, allowing people geo-tagging in a video.

Sentinel integrates multi-person tracking and there is potentially no limit to the number of people that can be simultaneously detected by this technology. Sentinel provides API for developers to integrate this technology inside custom applications. Video retail analytics solutions, video surveillance systems, intelligent video analysis software can be easily developed on top of this camera tracking system.

  • Standalone or Cloud Installation possible.
  • API for developers.
  • CSV files with detailed detection data.

FAQs


  • Can I track a specific person and know his movements throughout a venue with multiple cameras?

    This is an interesting questions: it is possible to do so under certain conditions and up to a specific extent. You can find a complete explanation about this topic here. Please contact our team at this link to speak with a specialist about your project.

  • Can I host Sentinel on my server?

    Yes, Sentinel can run on a local on-premise server machine. We offer the option to run Sentinel in cloud: in this case the cameras should communicate with our cloud server and stream the video to be analyzed.

  • Does Sentinel have a dashboard and user-interface? How does it look like?

    No, Sentinel is a computer vision technology meant to be integrated into external software and applications: we provide API and raw data so that a custom software, user interface and dashboard can be developed on top of Sentinel. We do not usually provide an end-user application, however, our R&D team can work on custom projects and developments, on a consultancy basis, and create a custom user-interface and application for your specific project: contact us at this link to speak with a specialist about your project.

  • Can I test Sentinel?

    Sure: you can easily test Sentinel for free by uploading an existing video, ideally from a CCTV camera, through our demo page (link). In addition, if you would like to have an extended demo/development license to test Sentinel with real time videos, please contact us at this link to discuss your project and requirements with a specialist that can give you all the information about how to set up a Sentinel demo account.

  • Does Sentinel use facial recognition?

    Usually no: Sentinel is complementary to facial recognition systems, and lets you monitor the movements of people also when facial recognition is not available or not precise enough. It is however possible for our R&D team to integrate Facial Recognition with Sentinel, along with other features (age/gender/emotion recognition, for example): please contact us at this link to analyze your requirements with a specialist.

  • What are the cameras that I can use with Sentinel?

    Sentinel is hardware-agnostic: it can work with almost every camera available on the market, as long as the video requirements are met. You can find a complete explanation here.
