Integration of surveillance and video management solutions for safer cities

A deep native integration of Bosch cameras with software from ISS proactively catalyses the best in security and surveillance, while providing advanced intelligent video tools. ISS SecurOS provides intelligent enterprise video management solutions with emphasis on providing scalability and flexibility to meet the customer’s needs. Deeply integrating built-in video analytics from Bosch cameras improves operator efficiency and situational awareness to manage complex environments. ISS SecurOS maximises camera performance for license plate recognition, face recognition, and container/train carriages recognition. The cameras meet the performance needs for advanced analytics, ensuring the success of projects and saving time, resources, and cost. The partnership has delivered multi-thousand-camera safe city deployments, industrial analytics solutions, and systems for large-scale transport providers. The usage of roads and parking lots can be managed more effectively by knowing the whereabouts of each vehicle License plate capture The usage of roads and parking lots can be managed more effectively by knowing the whereabouts of each and every vehicle. Operations managers are accountable for efficient logistical flows and effective use of roads and parking lots. Knowing the ins and outs of the transport infrastructure and what’s going on at all times provides the knowledge required to ensure operations are running safely, efficiently and in compliance with the rules and laws. An important part of this comes from monitoring which vehicles are entering an area and ensuring they are allowed to be there. Capturing license plates of every vehicle moving in an area provides knowledge of traffic flows and usage patterns. Such a solution should also allow a customer to easily configure and manage monitoring preferences and permit easy data exchanges with other operational management systems and services to manage an infrastructure and logistics as a whole. Reliable license plate data Robust mechanical design of cameras ensures reliable 24/7 operation for many years even in harsh environments As transportation infrastructures are often operating around the clock, reliable vehicle identification data is required 24/7. This means that the cameras capturing this data should work in all lighting and weather conditions, for both slow- and fast-moving vehicles. Cameras must be built to produce usable images 24/7 in all weather conditions. For quality license plate recognition in both day and night, the cameras make use of supplementary infrared light. A special License Plate Recognition (LPR) mode, developed in collaboration with LPR software, delivers readable license plates even with glaring headlights and with fast moving vehicles. Robust mechanical design of cameras ensures reliable 24/7 operation for many years even in harsh environments. License Plate Capture solution The SecurOSTM AUTO system of ISS, when used with Bosch cameras, provides easy to deploy solutions for all of these requirements. It recognises license plates from many countries, manages and matches white, hot and blacklists and notifies the operator either in the GUI or through a messaging interface to other management systems. Additionally, the system can be used and managed as a standalone or embedded in other management systems on the premises.

Bosch Building Technologies & ISS implement SecurOS video management platform for traffic monitoring

To provide a practical solution to the monitoring of transportation infrastructure, where maximum situational awareness is paramount, Bosch Building Technologies has combined the innovation behind its video security cameras with the video management expertise of Intelligent Security Systems (ISS).  ISS is a global developer of video management and video intelligence solutions. The video management platform, SecurOS, focuses on securing large mission-critical applications, such as industrial and manufacturing sites, transportation systems, banks, sports arenas, retail locations, and campuses and office complexes. ISS’ differentiating video intelligence and image analytics solutions, whether it is Face Capture & Recognition (SecurOS FACE), License Plate Recognition (SecurOS AUTO License Plate Recognition), or Container Character Recognition (SecurOS CARGO), provide effective monitoring solutions to the transportation sector. The capabilities stretch to large-scale entry and exit points such as ports, borders and airport car parks  Surveillance challenges Transportation security provides surveillance challenges in varying degrees of situation and scale, so effective license plate recognition is crucial. From tunnels and bridges, where a situation can change in seconds, to regulating traffic flow into a city and capturing a profile of each vehicle, Bosch and ISS can provide answers to the questions that matter. Has a particular vehicle been permitted access to a specific area? Has that vehicle been stolen? What’s the insurance or toll subscription status? Has that vehicle been authorised to operate as a taxi? The capabilities even stretch to large-scale entry and exit points such as ports, borders and airport car parks.  Vehicle monitoring Monitoring which vehicles are entering an area, and checking their legitimacy to be there, has never been more critical. Having the capability to capture license plates of every vehicle moving in the designated area gives users complete awareness of traffic flows and usage patterns, allowing them to configure and manage their monitoring preferences efficiently and permit secure data exchanges with other operational management systems and services for efficient infrastructure alignment.  If driving conditions were perfect all-year round, the job of an operations manager, for example, would be quite straightforward. But the reality is quite the opposite. That is why the ISS certified Bosch cameras responsible for capturing this data are incredibly robust and built to produce usable images 24/7 in the harshest conditions, including after dark by employing a supplementary infrared light. The selected cameras have a special License Plate Recognition (LPR) mode which is developed in collaboration with ISS to deliver accurate information even when faced with the challenges of glaring headlights and fast-moving vehicles. Interpreting video data directly at source helps to improve levels of security substantially and can also offer clear business advantages  SecurOS AUTO license plate recognition High standards are applied to the quality of the images captured. By incorporating the SecurOS AUTO License Plate Recognition (LPR/ANPR) solution, Bosch and ISS can provide several unique benefits for users, including the ability to accurately capture license plate information at 210 km/h (130 mph) in all kinds of weather conditions, including light fog, rain, and snow. Furthermore, utilising advanced algorithms results in a level of accuracy that can distinguish letters from numbers (so an “8” is not mistaken for a “B,” for example) which is a crucial advantage, particularly in emergency situations. The partnership with ISS supports Bosch’s belief that the logical next-step for security is to enable customers to repurpose the vast amounts of video data that they now can capture. Interpreting video data directly at source helps to improve levels of security substantially and can also offer clear business advantages.

ONVIF celebrates 10th anniversary as a provider of interoperability standards to the physical security market

ONVIF, renowned global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, is proud to celebrate its 10th anniversary, capping off a decade of growth and rising influence as a provider of interoperability standards to the physical security market. Beginning with a small group of competitive manufacturers who joined forces in 2008 and growing to 500 ONVIF member companies, ONVIF continues to refine and promote its specifications for interoperability between security technology devices and beyond. ONVIF continues to refine and promote its specifications for interoperability between security technology devices Leading interoperability standard “We are so proud that what began as just a common mindset 10 years ago has transformed into everything ONVIF has become - a dynamic, member-driven organisation dedicated to enabling interoperability and end user freedom of choice to select products from a variety of different security technology vendors,” said Per Björkdahl, Chairman, ONVIF Steering Committee. “Our official recognition and global adoption by the international standardisation community, our crowning achievement, is a testament to the work of our volunteer leaders and supporting member companies and a reflection of our prominence as the leading interoperability standard within physical security today.” Successful technical alliance ONVIF was founded as a technical alliance by Axis Communications, Sony and Bosch Security and Safety Systems and today has nearly 10,000 conformant products and member base spanning six continents and 39 countries. ONVIF specifications have been adopted by such global standards bodies as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Cenelec and are becoming increasingly applicable in growing security and connectivity environments such as Safe City initiatives, IoT applications and intelligent building automation. Profile S was the first ONVIF Profile released and remains the most widely used profile on the market today The alliance’s six Profiles cover the fundamental features in use in IP-based video surveillance and IP-based access control systems, as well as a growing list of more sophisticated functionalities in demand by the market. Profile S, for video streaming and configuration, as well as PTZ control, audio, multicasting and relay outputs for supporting conformant devices and clients, was the first ONVIF Profile released and remains the most widely used profile on the market today. ONVIF Profiles In all, ONVIF has released six profiles, which include: Profile S for video streaming, released in 2011 Profile C for IP-based basic access control, released in 2013 Profile G for edge storage and retrieval, released in 2014 Profile Q for quick installation, released in 2016 Profile A for broader access control configuration, released in 2017 Profile T (Release Candidate), for advanced video streaming, to be finalised July 2018  This year, ONVIF is preparing to exceed 10,000 products that conform to its ProfilesGrowth and future projections From its start in 2008, the ONVIF organisation grew rapidly, attracting some 300 members and 1,000 conformant products by 2011. While the original focus was interoperability between components of an IP-based video surveillance system, the organisation announced in 2010 it would expand its scope to IP-based physical access control. With a new breadth of product choice in place, the increased membership and conformant product levels showcased the expanding reach of ONVIF in the market. By 2015, ONVIF had grown to more than 5,000 conformant products and, between 2016-2017, the organisation saw its largest increase in membership in a two-year span. This year, ONVIF is preparing to exceed 10,000 products that conform to its Profiles. “The demand for connectivity between IP-based devices will continue to skyrocket, as industries begin to realise the efficiencies and actionable data produced by connecting IP devices within their organisation,” according to Björkdahl. “This aligns well with the vision of ONVIF, that all security systems will one day share a single interface, and we are eager to help the industry realise this vision within our next decade.”
