Never lose track of an object of interest! Intelligent Tracking automatically zooms in to and follows a selected Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) or IVA Pro object as far as possible with the camera.
Depending on the cameras, this has the following, different effects (Note that cameras are clustered via their common product platform (CPP)):
AUTODOME / MIC IP 7100i / 9000i (CPP 7.3 & 13):
FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 6000 / 7000 (CPP6):
Ease of use: Steer the virtual PTZ camera for the operator to obtain the optimal and already dewarped video of the object of interest. By recording the full resolution in parallel, no detail is lost.
DINION / FLEXIDOME IP 7000 / 8000 (CPP6/7/7.3):
Oftentimes, operators watch several cameras at once on a screen, leaving SD resolution or less for each single camera video. By using Intelligent Tracking to automatically zoom in, a close up of the suspect can automatically be shown in this small resolution, to allow the operator to faster decide on incidents. Furthermore, the motion of the ROI will aid in focusing the attention of the operator. By recording the full resolution in parallel, no detail is lost.
IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking, based on deep learning, provides an AI-based version of this Intelligent Tracking feature for CPP13 MIC/AUTODOMEs. IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking automatically detects and separates upright persons and vehicles and is robust even in crowded scenes. Robust algorithms based on artificial neural networks are trained to ignore potential disruptions caused by vehicle headlights or shadows, extreme weather, and sun reflections. Thus, a PTZ camera equipped with IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking can automatically follow persons and vehicles in traffic or inner city scenes by panning, tilting, and zooming to follow an object of interest and keep it prominently in the field of view.
When to use IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking:
IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking works with both IVA Pro Buildings and IVA Pro Traffic.
When not to use IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking:
For protection against professional intruders that are camouflaged, rolling or crawling to circumvent detection, IVA or IVA Pro Perimeter must be used. When started from IVA Pro Perimeter, IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking is automatically disabled and the normal Intelligent Tracking takes over instead.
IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking inherits the available classes. If only IVA Pro Buildings is available, then IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking detects, distinguishes, and tracks persons and vehicles. If IVA Pro Traffic is available, then the following object classes are available: person, bicycle, motorbike, car, bus, truck.
There are two different modes to trigger Intelligent Tracking:
• Auto mode: In this mode, the camera follows any object that has triggered an alarm in the Intelligent Video Analytics application. This mode is most useful for scenarios in which the alarm cases can be clearly defined, for example, when a vehicle is driving the wrong way or when a person is present on a highway.
• Click mode: In this mode, users can click on any object detected by the Intelligent Video Analytics application to enable the camera to track the movement of the selected object.
