The core Video Analytics element of VISuite AI is Ipsotek’s patented Scenario-Based Rule Engine (SBRE), a powerful tool to precisely define behaviors of interest as they would unfold in the real-world dynamic and complex environment.
The SBRE is derived from a conceptual description of activities as they are explained by a human operator. It allows for multiple Video Analytics and AI events to contribute to an alarm trigger and leverages the ability to fuse inputs from multiple sensors to form a robust alarm. The SBRE can differentiate between complex scenarios such as a vehicle stopping opposite a sensitive building, driver leaving the vehicle and walking away, or a taxi stopping at the same location to let a passenger out. Another example would be differentiating between a passenger in an airport putting a bag on the floor and standing next to it from a person putting a bag down and actually abandoning it.
The SBRE’s strength is also demonstrated when events from different sensors are merged in one information fusion engine that benefits from multimodal detection capability. For example, the SBRE is capable of combining events from Facial Recognition with Video Analytics tracking and access control to differentiate between a security guard backtracking on arrival gates (entering airport airside through arrival gates) and a person attempting to breach airport security.
In short, the SBRE takes decisions and executes actions based on fusing Video Analytics, AI and other multimodal information to automate and enhance surveillance.
