How AI technology can solve complex security challenges

Hangzhou, China

Dealing with complex security problems related to large flows of people and vehicles has been a prevalent challenge over the years. Even with basic monitoring functions, common surveillance solutions nowadays still lack relevant features that address other customer requirements including target searching, customer statistical data, parking management, etc. However, by incorporating AI into surveillance devices, these further monitoring demands can be efficiently solved. AI-powered solutions not only provide early warning and real-time alerts for users to respond to security risks in time, but also offer advanced analytics and data statistics that can assist their business operations.

One of Dahua’s key AI technologies can be used to help solve common surveillance issues such as these and here Dahua product manager Ms. Shirley Pei explains some of the beneficial aspects of the latest Dahua Wizmind technology.

Meeting complex requirements

Powered by deep learning algorithms, the Dahua Wizmind is basically a comprehensive portfolio of project-oriented AI products and solutions, including IPC, NVR, PTZ, XVR, thermal imaging devices, and software platforms. It is designed to meet the complex requirements of high-end vertical markets, such as retail, energy, finance and transportation. Its main applications are based on humans and vehicles, which address the ever escalating complexity of security challenges like large flows of people and vehicles. At the same time, it also provides applications based on object and thermal imaging.

Data based on human attributes

The human-based Wizmind offers intelligent AI features like face recognition, privacy protection, human video metadata, stereo analysis, people counting and so on. It provides accurate data based on human attributes and behaviours, which can help users to respond to the situation accordingly. The generated data can also be used to help managers optimise their business operation and aid their decision making. And of course, we have considered user privacy for these functions, in fact, there are flexible options for users to customise their monitoring based on their actual needs.

Vehicle-based version helps boost road safety & parking Efficiency

Ensuring traffic safety and efficiency can be a headache for many cities all over the world. The Wizmind based on vehicles, as its name indicates, pertains to our vehicle-based AI technologies including ANPR, vehicle metadata, illegal parking detection, and parking space management. It’s widely used in urban roads, residential communities, parking lots and toll stations to alleviate traffic congestion and improve the driver experience. The Dahua Smart Parking Management Solution, for example, can help drivers locate an available parking space in real time. The Wizmind ANPR IPC can be deployed at the entrance/exit of a residential complex to automatically identify the residents’ vehicle number plates. It provides convenience to drivers and helps save labour costs.

Helping to find missing items

The object-based Wizmind is equipped with deep learning algorithms that can detect objects like boxes, backpacks, luggage bags, bikes, etc. It effectively filters out interference caused by light, animals and other irrelevant objects, thus providing accurate alarms and reducing false alarms. With these capabilities, it can offer real-time detection of abandoned or missing objects with linkage alarm connected to the administrator to find missing items in time. It is suitable for railway stations, bus stations, and airports, where there’s a large flow of travellers and commuters on a daily basis. In some cases, it is also used to detect objects obstructing fire lanes and fire exits.

Innovative use of thermal imaging technology

Wizmind utilises thermal imaging technology to achieve 24/7 ultra-long range monitoring that can recognise humans and vehicles even from far distances and even under harsh environments with fog, haze, snow, and so on. A Dahua thermal camera can be deployed for perimeter applications as it can detect both people and vehicles at a distance, which helps alert authorities in time in case of intrusion. It is also ideal in ports and docks to detect water vessels even in harsh weather conditions. Aside from that, these Wizmind thermal cameras can also help prevent waste and forest fires at an early stage because it can detect mild differences in temperature change.

Third-party platforms integration

The Dahua Wizmind is compatible with global video management systems, like Milestone, Axxon, Avigilon, ISS, Qognify, and Mirasys. Users can use our very own Dahua Open Platform (DHOP) for Wizmind IPCs and thermal cameras based on their actual needs. We also offer sufficient API to allow our technology partners to integrate with Wizmind products. At present, we already have more than 15 existing technology partners and more than 18 applications available.
