Video Surveillance and Analytics
There has been a growing shift to IP based CCTV cameras that provide significant advantages such as scalability, remote monitoring over internet and easy sorting of digital video files. These IP-based solutions also support intelligent video analytics that augment the video surveillance systems with real-time detection and alerts for defined events.
Many cities typically have surveillance systems deployed by multiple public and private establishments. A safe city solution with a collaborative framework can receive video feeds from these systems and sub-systems to ensure real-time responses.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
This surveillance solution uses optical character recognition on images to read the license plates on vehicles. This is mostly used at borders or traffic signals to identify and cross-check vehicles with a comprehensive vehicles database to provide actionable intelligence in case of vehicle theft, etc
Facial Recognition System (FRS)
This solution is a computer application which automatically identifies or verifies a person from a digital image, or a video frame from a video source. This solution uses a combination of eye zone extraction and facial recognition on neural network technology. Recognitions are regardless of vantage point and facial changes (glasses, beard and expression). The system has a short processing time and a high recognition rate of upto 100 faces per image/frame.
Robust, reliable and scalable networks are required to enable converged communication. These points of connections include cameras, data centers, Regional Command Centers, traffic command centers, police stations and other critical government databases. In addition to terrestrial connectivity, satellite connectivity is required at data centers, command centers and mobile vans as the former network systems are typically the first casualty in the case of an incident or disaster.
Unified Communication Solution
This solution entails messaging and call channel across heterogeneous networks and systems to provide guaranteed message delivery, efficient routing, security and priority based messaging.
Data centers are used to record the video feeds for viewing at Command Centers and for future references. These data centers house NVRs, servers and storage required for recording and processing video feeds. The Command & Control Centers at both the regional and the central level will get required video feeds and alerts from the data centers.
This solution is built on open standards and a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to ensure seamless interoperability and integration for maintaining law and order in a city. Some of the key components of the Application Portfolio include video management system, recording system, analytics system, GIS and a customized dashboard for various categories of personnel. Customized applications can be created to integrate criminal database, RTO database, etc.
Vehicle Mounted Camera
The vehicle is equipped with basic CCTV equipment, communication equipment, and video display systems along with seating capacity for operators. The Mobile Video Van is maintained in a complete state of readiness and is capable of capturing and streaming real-time video feeds of an incident.
Vehicle Tracking System on GIS maps
GPS based vehicle tracking of police vehicles/QRT vehicles/fire brigade trucks/ambulances enabled on GIS maps, enable the command center operator to accurately and easily locate these vehicles in case of any eventualities. The operator can communicate with these vehicles through a unified communication system to report to the location of casualty.
Command and Control Center Solution (PSIM)
This integrated solution enforces Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and provides greater visibility of all security activity in a realtime single view and helps government authorities to implement and enforce rules and regulations. It enables situational awareness throughout its infrastructure by creating a unified and interactive intelligence picture, drawing data from all sensors, showing the location of the patrols and adding other relevant information such as video from different sources. This combined picture is constantly updated and can be sent by the Control Center to all patrols, thereby serving as a uniform basis for operational planning and allocation of tasks.
The Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system operates as part of an overall incident cycle that integrates disparate security agencies together. This cycle consist of four key phases – Plan, Detect, React and Analyse – as displayed in the diagram below.
