Bosch AIoT Video Software Now Supports Safe Social Distancing
Intelligent Insights captures data from Bosch video cameras with built-in AI and pulls it into a single dashboard to support informed decision-making.
GRASBRUNN, Germany — The latest release of Intelligent Insights from Bosch offers a software widget update that supports safe social distancing. Intelligent Insights is an AIoT video software solution that combines the connectivity of physical products with the application of artificial intelligence (AI), giving customers the ability to predict based on live and historical data, according to an announcement.
Intelligent Insights is said to capture data from Bosch video cameras with built-in AI and pulls it into a single dashboard to support informed decision-making before a potential situation occurs.
One of the most notable changes caused by the current pandemic is social distancing. Maintaining a precise distance and upholding a maximum threshold of people in gathering areas such as workplaces, shopping centers and train stations has become critical to minimize coronavirus spread (COVID-19).
Considering the challenges imposed by this situation, Intelligent Insights supports social distancing regulations with its latest software widget update, according to the announcement.
The new Area fill level traffic light widget offers an intuitive graphical interface that helps users comply with social distancing regulations. The widget visualizes the current and maximum number of people allowed in a particular area at a specific time. It illustrates three different states — normal, serious, and critical — as green, yellow, or red, along with corresponding info text, so the user instantly knows when to take action.
Users can opt to live stream the Area fill level traffic light widget on a monitor at an entrance to a supermarket or grocery store, for example, to inform customers whether they may enter the store. When a threshold is reached, the widget can activate and trigger a connected device that will inform visitors with a public announcement, simple alert or message displayed on a monitor.
From scene to screen
Intelligent Insights uses built-in AI from Bosch cameras to interpret video images and captures camera metadata from situations involving moving objects, people counting and crowd detection. The software tool then collects, aggregates, and displays this information using a series of pre-defined widgets enabling users to visualize and evaluate a complete scene from a simple overview screen.
The dashboard enables users to quickly understand what they see, which helps them respond before a potential situation occurs and delivers business intelligence beyond security. For detailed post-analysis and to help users adjust and alter future actions, Intelligent Insights offers a report function.
Full situational awareness
Intelligent Insights comes with a series of intuitive dashboard widgets that enable users to evaluate a complete scene to support security, safety, and well-being in varying applications. Depending on the application, users can select the needed widgets to provide the required information to help predict unwanted situations or uncover new opportunities.
Area fill level, Occupancy counting, and Crowd detection offer the ability to monitor and detect crowds accurately and count individuals and objects. The user can specify the desired occupancy rate of an area by determining the maximum number of people allowed to be in that area within a given time.
Intelligent Insights also offers Object counting and People counting to count objects or people accurately, such as when entering or leaving a building. These widgets help identify peak and low times on specific days or over an extended period. Intelligent Insights uses only anonymous data from cameras, ensuring people’s privacy is protected at all times.
With the Object positioning widget, users can get a real-time overview of all objects moving in a specific area. Based on their GPS position, which can be determined by cameras that feature built-in AI, the objects are plotted onto a map and classified with icons.
Intelligent Insights, an AIoT video software solution from Bosch, supports social distancing regulations, helps customers respond before a potential situation occurs, and delivers business intelligence beyond security. Intelligent Insights is not only a powerful standalone software package but also designed for seamless integration with other software solutions like the video management system of Bosch (BVMS).
