Security and Safety Things GmbH demonstrated their open IoT platform for video surveillance cameras at GSX in Chicago in September, showcasing real world examples of the Security and Safety Things camera operating system and global IoT marketplace in preparation for worldwide launch early next year.

The Security and Safety Things OS, the world’s first open and standardised operating system for surveillance cameras, has a growing list of manufacturer partners who have adopted the OS for use in their cameras and more than 15 partner software developers who have produced some 40 apps ready to be sold in the app store.

Innovative AI applications

At GSX we also demonstrated several prototype cameras using our operating system"

We are very excited by our rapidly growing ecosystem of partner developers that include Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services with their innovative AI applications, which range from real-time edge analytics to deep learning,” said Hartmut Schaper, CEO of Security and Safety Things. “Along with the great diversity of apps already in our marketplace, at GSX we also demonstrated several prototype cameras using our operating system from various camera manufacturer partners.”

An innovative airport-themed booth at GSX illustrated video analytics use cases in three core areas of an airport: The terminal, the boarding gate and the duty-free shops. The terminal section featured cross-domain use cases with Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services and Here Technologies, presenting how security and travel journeys can be improved with deep learning.

Integrated camera analytics data

The boarding gate section focused on security and safety use cases, with different applications such as detecting abandoned luggage. In the duty-free store, partner developers illustrated how video analytics improve store operations and how neural network learning enhances the shopping experience of customers.

These benefits are part of our mission and that of our more than 15 developer partners to help increase security"

The app from Here Technologies illustrated the possibilities of an enhanced travel journey with integrated camera analytics data and mapping services to better manage and inform users of traffic congestion, parking availability and payment within the airport setting.

These benefits are part of our mission and that of our more than 15 developer partners to help increase security, optimise operations and improve customer experience at airports and many other environments as well,” said Emmanuel Ventadour, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Security and Safety Things. All applications ran on prototype cameras with the Security and Safety Things OS from members of the Open Security and Safety Alliance (OSSA).
