Amazing Upgrade to Your Existing Video Security System

Saturday Oct 20, 2018 (00:10:59)


Lloyd Reshard, CEO of Cognitive Big Data Systems, stopped by our Collision studio to tell us about their new software system. It provides a great way to get more security and upgrade your system without having to purchase new equipment as it works with your existing hardware. The software, AVAE, is a third-party add-in system that basically acts as a filter that is able to detect all the normal activity that is specific to your home and then alerts for unusual activity. It allows for the processing of real-time video data on your PC without having to change the cameras or video management systems. AVAE is able to remember the patterns of over 25M numbers per second and how they relate to each other without storing any of the numbers.

AVAE is unique because of the unconventional way that it processes large amounts of data. This quick and efficient system transfers regular video streaming into pixel data. Once pixelated, it is then able to detect and classify abnormal behaviors and patterns based on what is normal for a particular person, device, time of day, or situation. AVAE can also issue automatic alerts and/or be programmed to take action as needed. The point, click and tag design offers real-time training of target objects with minimal setup.

System capabilities include:

  • Detection and classification of objects, both indoor and out
  • Automated detection of people at parking entrance/exit
  • Vehicle / human detection - with further classification into subtypes
  • People, vehicle, object counting
  • Crowd density management
  • Static object (such as items left behind, abandoned baggage, etc.)
  • Trajectory between cameras
  • People detection on a conveyor belt
  • People detection on railroad tracks or on gates
  • Meaningful data about the volume and direction of pedestrians, bikes, motorbikes, cars, and large vehicles.
  • Can easily be integrated via APIs, Services or libraries.
