AI + IoT = AIoT: What’s in it for next-generation video surveillance?

Responsive and interactive advertising can take up many forms and does not need to be just a domain of online shopping as Azena highlighted in their AIoT article that featured our FLOW retail application. Thanks to the innovations in video analytics technology it is quite affordable to do things like starting advertising videos when people pass through a defined “line” or enter a zone. Not enough? Then you can detect the color of their clothing or their age and gender and based on it highlight specific products or offers and help people navigate to the product’s locations. Suddenly you have an innovative way to improve your customer experience and boost your sales. What is more, it is something impressive people will talk about with others mentioning your store name in the process.
Apart from responsive advertising FLOW retail can provide you with valuable store hotspot heatmaps for better product placement, trigger alerts to send employees to cash registers, or give you valuable data like the current number of people in the store. You can get 30 trial of the FLOW retail application for smart cameras here.

Roundabout safety monitoring in Denmark – Slagelse

With the wide spread of roundabouts as the favorite solution for many road intersections the need to understand how they are used increases. What trajectories do the objects passing through them take? How fast do they go? Are there any conflict hot spots and if so how can we identify them? These questions can be answered with the help of our TrafficSurvey, which COWI has done in many of their road safety analyses with us.
📄 Learn more about how COWI analyzed traffic in roundabouts and improved safety in this 5 minute read.

Bicycle path monitoring – Active mobility preview – richer data and new categories

We understand the importance of working toward sustainability goals and their implications for mobility in cities. The initiatives for improving the availability of safe and smooth ways to move around cities on foot or by bicycle play a crucial role in achieving them. To be able to make good decisions in implementing them, the municipalities need comprehensive data to realize traffic solutions that take into account the complexity of modern city traffic. To help with this we will be introducing the FLOW active mobility. In the video, you can see a short preview.

FLOW active mobility is a group of upcoming improvements bringing more detailed categorization of and richer data on the traffic participants. In the video, you can see that FLOW is detecting not only pedestrians and cyclists but also scooters, and even prams and wheelchairs. Additionally, we are now able to determine age (child, adult. senior) and gender (male, female). With such detailed data, it is now easy to gain a deep understanding of active mobility to be able to better design public spaces, cyclist paths, and cities as a whole. Create breakdowns by category, direction, age or time and gather long terms statistics thanks to FLOW. These features will be available in the applications both on the Azena store and Axis Communications’s ACAP.

A Truly big Traffic Survey – 4 drones 1km – case study

Is it possible to get the complete car and even cyclist trajectories from a 1km long road? Yes, it is, with DataFromSky TrafficSurvey. Storytime! Leeuwarden, a city in the Netherlands, was struggling with traffic on a very important city road and needed to understand the traffic to create a large-scale Origin-Destination matrix. Roelofs was able to gather the necessary data with the use of our TrafficSurvey which was used to analyze videos merged from 4 simultaneously flying drones. The data was then used to simulate the traffic flow in several possible future infrastructure redesign scenarios using PTV Group‘s software PTV Vissim. This way the city was able to make an informed decision on what type of design would be best for smooth and safe traffic.
