This Croatian engineering company is specialized in 3D object tracking in single and multicamera environment setup and high-resolution stereo imaging. They have developed several tracking and surveillance solutions: camera stage tracking system, automated video surveillance and stadiums & smart city surveillance for instant situation awareness.
The SME has a great international experience in entertainment industry with their solution for visual tracking using a single camera. That system has become industry standard.
The company has recently developed a new method of tracking objects through several video cameras in large areas. It also includes a method of tracking objects in real time with PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras that allow the development of automated video surveillance systems.
Multicamera environment allows the use of various type of cameras in one surveillance system: panoramic, PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) and thermo cameras.
Panoramic camera will detect any person or any vehicle in a supervised area. But it will not detect persons face or a vehicle licence plate, therefore PTZ cameras are used. Based on the image from panoramic camera, PTZ camera is directed to full-body zoom and full vehicle zoom.
Surveillance systems for large high security public areas will have several PTZ cameras. Also security officer is able to direct all PTZ cameras on one person or selected area for full situation awareness.
Tracking a single person in real time using several PTZ cameras is also a feature of this method. Tracking can be manually or automatic by using standard algorithms of object tracking in video stream. This method also supports multi objects in real time tracking.
All these features of multicamera system enables the development of automated video surveillance system.
Panoramic cameras are used for large area surveillance. Any movement detection will automatically direct the thermo and PTZ cameras for close imaging and zooming on the subject.
For example, relevant person on a city square can be zoomed from any direction for the face detection and recognition.
Also the system can have dislocated clients/users such as city surveillance, police or traffic surveillance who could use the system for their needs.
This method enables development of automatic surveillance systems. System will detect movement, use the PTZ cameras for zooming and use thermal cameras for imaging. The system activate tracking, calculate object height and width and if criteria meet, it would send a alarm message and video stream to remote location or surveillance center.
Also automated positioning of zoom and thermal cameras can be used in automated fire detection systems. Again, panoramic camera will survey wide area and if disturbance in pixels are detected, system will automatically direct long range thermal imaging camera in the area for instant temperature reading.
Multicamera tracking and 3D high resolution stereo imaging method can have their application in different areas; entertainment industry for camera and light tracking systems, surveillance systems, smart city systems, automated fire detection systems, fruit picking, multicamera ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) systems any many more.
The company is searching for industry partners that can implement the technology in products and/or enhance the practical use of the technology. Partnership may include joint venture, technical cooperation or commercial agreement with technical assistance.
