New vehicle centric investigation system for Genetec Autovu

Montreal, Canada

Cloudrunner utilises vehicle data collected by the new Cloudrunner CR-H2, a high-performance solar-powered automated license plate recognition (ALPR) camera.

At ISC West, starting today, Genetec will unveil Autovu Cloudrunner, a new cloud-based vehicle-centric investigation system (VCIS) that detects, analyses, and securely stores highly accurate vehicle identification data to support public safety investigations.

Cloudrunner is designed to enhance community-led policing initiatives and provide law enforcement agencies, community associations, and campus security teams with a reliable way to identify vehicles connected to crimes, day and night, and in any weather condition. Coupled with hotlist notifications and live monitoring capabilities, Cloudrunner helps officers locate suspects on the move, so they can intervene immediately.

Cloudrunner utilises vehicle data collected by the new Cloudrunner CR-H2, a high-performance solar-powered automated license plate recognition (ALPR) camera. Powered by Autovu Machine Learning Core (MLC) – the company’s deep neural network-based vehicle recognition analytics engine – the CR-H2 camera goes beyond license plate recognition. It can identify vehicle color and type, as well as behavior analytics, such as speed estimation and direction of travel so that investigators can narrow their search, even when there is no – or only partial – licence plate information available.

CR-H2 features onboard integrated microphones that will be utilised in the future to quickly alert public safety and law enforcement officials to a range of sounds – creating deeper situational awareness for a more informed response.

In addition to the CR-H2, the Cloudrunner investigation system is also compatible with existing ALPR cameras such as the Autovu Sharpv and has the ability to integrate with ALPR data coming from select third-party cameras.

Ease of use

The Cloudrunner investigation system removes the complexities of deploying a high-performance ALPR solution. The CR-H2 camera works wirelessly over existing cellular networks (4G/LTE) and is easy to install, set up, and maintain without the need for specialised ALPR expertise. In addition, the sensor can be installed in minutes and professionally calibrated and optimised remotely by a member of the Genetec team.

Built from the ground up following privacy by design and cyber security best practices, Cloudrunner fosters responsible collaboration between local stakeholders either directly through the Cloudrunner solution or as a part of a broader Genetec Security Center deployment. And, when relevant evidence is found, it can quickly and securely be shared through Genetec Clearance, the company’s digital evidence management system (DEMS).

“This innovative vehicle-centric investigation system is a game-changer for law enforcement, helping them solve crimes today and build a safer tomorrow,” said Stephan Kaiser, General Manager, Autovu, Genetec Inc. “Because Autovu Cloudrunner captures more vehicle data and has superior performance at night and at high speed, investigators have access to more evidence, no matter when the crime took place, day or night - rain or shine.”

Autovu Cloudrunner will be available in North America from Genetec and its network of authorised resellers in summer 2022.
