Bosch has announced launch of Intelligent Insights, an affordable software solution that enables customers to use data in new ways, in the UAE. It brings together every element from scene to screen, from intelligent cameras enabling video data capture and interpretation, to the visualization and reporting of data in one simple overview.
Intelligent Insights uses Bosch cameras’ built-in intelligence (Video Analytics) 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. Based on this, users can react faster and more efficiently, making better-informed decisions and improving overall security and safety. Intelligent Insights can be used standalone or seamlessly integrated with other systems to enhance situational awareness further.
Usable data can be visualized in two ways: As a widget and as a report. All widgets are displayed in a simple, easy-to-read dashboard that allows users to select and display only the widgets that they need at any given time. The report functions as a more detailed post-analysis, helping users adjust and alter actions in the future.
Intelligent Insights comes with a series of widgets, all of which contribute to specific safety and security needs.
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 a trigger can be set, which will be activated once the threshold is reached. This could be a simple alert, a message displayed on a monitor at the entrance to inform visitors if they are allowed to enter, or a public announcement.
Intelligent Insights also offers Object counting and People counting. Object counting enables users to accurately count the number of vehicles or customer-defined objects within the field of view of one or more cameras. It is ideal in situations with fast-moving objects, such as roads or crossroads, where traffic frequency rates must be tracked to determine data such as peak or low traffic periods. 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 certain area. This is especially helpful for applications such as perimeter protection. Based on their GPS position, which can be determined by cameras that feature built-in Video Analytics, the objects are plotted onto a map and classified with icons.
Intelligent Insights starts with a basic license that includes all widgets and one dashboard, displaying 16 widgets. When needed, dashboards and widgets can be added according to customer needs and requirements. Furthermore, when customers use Bosch Intelligent Video Analytics, output and data from the Camera Trainer technology (included in Intelligent Video Analytics) like counting statistics of customer-specific objects can be visualized and reported. All this, combined with new widgets and functionalities incorporated in forthcoming updates and versions, makes Intelligent Insights a future-proof solution.
Intelligent Insights, when integrated with the video management system of Bosch (BVMS), users can manage their live and recorded video streams and Intelligent Insights data within one unified graphical user interface (GUI). This integration eliminates the need to switch between multiple applications to get a complete picture of the situation. Another advantage of the integration with BVMS is that customers can enhance their video security solution to an integrated security solution that covers intrusion detection with B and G Series and access control management with the Access Management System 3.0.
