If you’ve been paying attention over the last twelve months, you will have noticed that deep learning techniques and artificial intelligence (AI) are making waves in the physical security market, with manufacturers eagerly adopting these buzzwords at the industry's biggest trade shows. With all the hype, security professionals are curious to know what these terms really mean, and how these technologies can boost real-world security system performance. The growing number of applications of deep learning technology and AI in physical security is a clear indication that these are more than a passing fad. This review of some of our most comprehensive articles on these topics shows that AI is an all-pervasive trend that the physical security industry will do well to embrace quickly. Here, we examine the opportunities that artificial intelligence presents for smart security applications, and look back at how some of the leading security companies are adapting to respond to rapidly-changing expectations: What is deep learning technology? Machine Learning involves collecting large amounts of data related to a problem, training a model using this data and employing this model to process new data. Recently, there have been huge advances in a branch of Machine Learning called Deep Learning. This describes a family of algorithms based on neural networks. These algorithms are able to learn efficiently from example, and subsequently apply this learning to new data. Here, Zvika Ashani explains how deep learning technology can boost video surveillance systems. Relationship between deep learning and artificial intelligence With deep learning, you can show a computer many different images and it will "learn" to distinguish the differences. This is the "training" phase. After the neural network learns about the data, it can then use "inference" to interpret new data based on what it has learned. For example, if it has seen enough cats before, the system will know when a new image is a cat. In effect, the system “learns” by looking at lots of data to achieve artificial intelligence (AI). Larry Anderson explores how new computer hardware - the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) – is making artificial intelligence accessible to the security industry. Improving surveillance efficiency and accuracy with AI Larry Anderson explains how the latest technologies from Neurala and Motorola will enable the addition of AI to existing products, changing an existing solution from a passive sensor to a device that is “active in its thinking.” The technology is already being added to existing Motorola body-worn-cameras to enable police officers to more efficiently search for objects or persons of interest. In surveillance applications, AI could eliminate the need for humans to do repetitive or boring work, such as look at hours of video footage. Intelligent security systems overcome smart city surveillance challenges AI technology is expected to answer the pressing industry questions of how to use Big Data effectively and make a return on the investment in expensive storage, while maintaining (or even lowering) human capital costs. However, until recently, these expectations have been limited by factors such as a limited ability to learn, and high ongoing costs. Zvika Ashani examines how these challenges are being met and overcome, making artificial intelligence the standard in Smart City surveillance deployments. Combining AI and robotics to enhance security operations With the abilities afforded by AI, robots can navigate any designated area autonomously to keep an eye out for suspicious behaviour or alert first responders to those who may need aid. This also means that fewer law enforcement and/or security personnel will have be pulled from surrounding areas. While drones still require a human operator to chart their flight paths, the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing the capabilities of these machines to work autonomously, says Steve Reinharz. Future of artificial intelligence in the security industry Contributors to SourceSecurity.com have been eager to embrace artificial intelligence and its ability to make video analytics more accurate and effective. Manufacturers predicted that deep learning technology could provide unprecedented insight into human behaviour, allowing video systems to more accurately monitor and predict crime. They also noted how cloud-based systems hold an advantage for deep learning video analytics. All in all, manufacturers are hoping that AI will provide scalable solutions across a range of vertical markets.
What sorts of things are the best and brightest at Germany’s universities currently working on? What exciting tech innovations from Germany and beyond can we expect to hit the market in the near future? This summer, the new CEBIT (11–15 June) will preview a range of innovations that are technologically within reach and will soon be a reality, focusing on megatrends like humanoid robotics, artificial intelligence and augmented reality. At nearly three percent of GDP, Germany leads Europe on R&D spending (Source: Eurostat – that statistical office of the European Union). CEBIT will pick up on this fact, demonstrating Germany’s world-leading research capabilities to impressive effect. Apart from being Europe’s No. 1 business festival for digitisation and innovation, CEBIT is an important meeting place for leading researchers, visionaries and lateral thinkers. This year, most of the participating research institutions will be presenting in the “Research & Innovation” section of CEBIT’s new d!tec platform. As well as that, numerous researchers from these institutions will be speaking on stage at the d!talk conference section of the show, where they will present groundbreaking concepts that are poised at the crossover point between science, business and industry. The sixth generation of the ARMAR family of robots from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Hall 27) is sure to cause a stir ARMAR-6 robots with enhanced AI capabilities The sixth generation of the ARMAR family of robots from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Hall 27) is sure to cause a stir. ARMAR-6 packs a high level of AI smarts, IT processing power and mechatronic dexterity. Developed as part of the EU’s SecondHands project, ARMAR is a humanoid robot that can learn to pick up and use tools and pass them to human coworkers. ARMAR can also recognise when a fellow technician needs help and lend him/her a hand. Among the promising developments for the retail sector on show at CEBIT will be a secure, anonymous and convenient payment and loyalty card system called PriPay. And it certainly is convenient: During initial testing it only took about a second to process payments. CEBIT visitors will be able to try the system out for themselves. At participating locations around the show, they will be able to collect PriPay points, which they can then redeem for a giveaway. The House of Living Labs research environment operated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology’s FZI Research Center for Information Technology is a tech-transfer hub where researchers collaborate with partners from many other sectors to develop market-ready products. At CEBIT, FZI will present an intelligent camera system for connected cars that can provide detailed information on driver fitness and alertness. It does this by monitoring and evaluating driver heart rate, blink rate, head position and emotional indicators. 3D-ARILE, a pair of AR glasses developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research are designed to assist surgeons during tumor operations Augmented reality for the O.R. The institutes that make up the Fraunhofer Society will be mounting a showcase themed “Sparking Your Future” that will demonstrate their wide-ranging expertise in digital transformation. The showcase (Hall 27 and open-air site) will span an array of technology areas, including AI, Industry 4.0, cyber security and the Internet of Things. Highlights include 3D-ARILE, a pair of AR glasses developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Fraunhofer IGD) that are designed to assist surgeons during tumor operations. Background: Malignant tumors often form metastases that spread via the body’s system of lymph nodes. Pinpointing the exact location of these nodes requires a great deal of skill on the part of the surgeon. The researchers at Fraunhofer IGD have therefore developed a navigation aid in which the exact location of lymph nodes is presented as a data overlay on the surgeon’s AR glasses. Another featured new development from the Fraunhofer stable is aimed at tomorrow’s smartphone users. The revolutionary HawkSpex Mobile app developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation (Fraunhofer IFF) enables users to scan produce for freshness and signs of chemical treatment, vehicle chassis parts for hidden repairs, and medicines for authenticity. These are just a very few of the exiting developments that the Fraunhofer researchers are planning to preview at CEBIT. True human-robot collaboration Today’s industrial robots are only able to assist humans on a single-task basis. Robots won’t be fully able to relieve their human counterparts of physically demanding work – such as repetitive tasks or ergonomically suboptimal movement sequences in assembly plants – until their scope of collaboration is expanded to encompass multiple work steps. The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) will be running a display at the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology (BMBF) pavilion in Hall 27, where it will demonstrate how humans and robots can collaborate efficiently and safely in tomorrow’s dynamic Industry 4.0 production environments. DFKI researchers will also be using CEBIT to present the center’s RECUPERA-Reha project DFKI researchers will also be using CEBIT to present the center’s RECUPERA-Reha project (Hall 27). The aim of the project is to develop an innovative, lightweight and mobile full-body exoskeleton that can support and rehabilitate people with neuromotor disorders occasioned by causes such as strokes. Brain-computer interfaces and optimised medical treatments Several big-name German universities and research institutions will be presenting their innovations as part of larger group pavilions staged by the governments of the federal states in which they are based. Hannover Medical School (MHH), for example, will be participating at the Lower Saxony pavilion (Hall 16). MHH is currently conducting research into a next-generation hearing-aid system, the idea being that tomorrow’s hearing aids will feature brain-computer interfaces and will be thought-controlled. To this end, the MHH researchers are currently looking at ways of tapping into hearing-aid wearers’ EEG signals. The university will also be showcasing cochlear implants with integrated AI technology. The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), Hannover, will be demonstrating how big data technologies can dramatically improve the quality of information management in medicine. The aim of the TIB information management process is to model genome data and information from various medical records in databases in order to improve patient treatment. Neurorobotics platform Over at Bavaria’s “Bayern Innovativ” pavilion (Hall 27), Technical University of Munich’s Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Real-time Systems unit will be profiling its contribution to the Neurorobotics Platform, an international joint project aimed at stimulating brain models which are made up of neural networks and which control an artificial body. CEBIT visitors will be able to witness the platform in action. TU Munich will also be showcasing a biometric robotic mouse that can imitate rodent locomotion. The “Baden-Württemberg International” pavilion will comprise six exhibitors and will have a strong focus on intelligent systems and Industry 4.0 The “Baden-Württemberg International” pavilion (Hall 27) will comprise six exhibitors and will have a strong focus on intelligent systems and Industry 4.0. Highlights include Aalen University’s presentation of its Cyber-Physical Teaching Factory. The factory is a teaching and research platform that can be used both to test digital twins and applications and to manufacture small parts. The presentation at CEBIT will focus mainly on testing data security by means of factory hacking and intrusion detection systems. Meanwhile, the state of Baden-Württemberg’s University of Stuttgart will show visitors how a flow field can be interactively visualised directly on the actual object concerned using augmented reality. Top researchers on stage at d!talk World-class scientists will be taking the stage at CEBIT to report on the latest technological discoveries and developments in their areas of research. Among the luminaries who have signaled their intention to participate are: Marc Raibert, the CEO and founder of Boston Dynamics, who, with the aid of his trusty dog-like high-end robot SpotMini, will be demonstrating how robotics is revolutionising our everyday lives (Tuesday, 12 June, Hall 27); psychologist and memory hacker Julia Shaw of University College London (author of bestseller “The Memory Illusion”), on Wednesday,13 June, in Hall 27; and Jaron Lanier, VR legend extraordinaire and one of the fiercest critics of the big Internet corporations and their business models (Monday, 11 June, Convention Center). The Monday Convention Center lineup also includes Fraunhofer Society President Dr. Reimund Neugebauer, who will talk about digitization from a scientific viewpoint. And last, but by no means least, Ranga Yogeshwar, one of Germany’s best-known science journalists, will discuss the future relationship between humans and computers in a presentation titled “Who’s programming who” (Wednesday, 13 June, Hall 27).
At the end of April, the most important multi-sectorial event on robotics and innovation held in Europe took place: The Global Robot Expo in Madrid. Fermax, sponsoring the event, revealed the most human side of technology in the Smart Home space, the place reserved to show how smart homes are already within our reach and that we can control them from our mobile phones. Considered the technology fair with the most promising future in the European market, Global Robot Expo has become an attractive meeting point, attended by top international lecturers and exhibitors from 30 countries belonging to an industry in full bloom. Exhibition of AI-based solutions Drones and bionic prostheses, an android that does the shopping, submarine robots, 3D printers, industry 4.0, driverless cars and a lot of artificial intelligence were the protagonists. We are talking about an event that has become, in its third edition, a window through which to contemplate this future that is already here, ready to transform everything: from the aerospace industry to education, not to mention our daily life at home. Housing had its own space designated Smart Home, a stand for all those innovations designed to make family day-to-day living more comfortable, safe and sustainable. There were the ergonomic sofas from FAMA, controllers for dependents from Asistae, smart mattresses by FLEX and the lawn-mowing or barbecue-cleaning robots manufactured by Smart Box. Fermax presented its latest touch monitors, interactive panels, home automation systems managed by voice recognition Home automation systems with voice recognition Not to mention the Dominium home automation systems from Fermax and the latest proposals from Hommax, which apply facial recognition technology to enhance security in its video surveillance systems. And, of course, Fermax also presented its latest touch monitors, interactive panels, home automation systems managed by voice recognition and its all-round access control systems and video surveillance cameras for the home. As experience is highly valued at this type of events, Fermax set up its stand with a permanent link-up to its facilities in Valencia. This way, it was possible to demonstrate to visitors directly how you can control a smart home remotely from a mobile app. Raising blinds, changing the temperature, turning lights on and off or opening the door are some of the many functions that we can control from any mobile device" Controlling smart home through mobile “Raising blinds, changing the temperature, turning lights on and off or opening the door are some of the many functions that we can control from any mobile device”, explained Jesús Gutiérrez, in charge of Fermax Spain’s Prospection. The same expert commented that the brand has built up significant experience with facilities of this type rolled out in the powerhouse Asia-Pacific market and which are now becoming par for the course in Spain. With its presence in this special event, Fermax once again shows its ability to keep its philosophy alive: democratising the most innovative technology by placing it at the service of society as a whole.
Hikvision USA Inc., a provider of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and other emerging technologies, and the supplier of video surveillance products and solutions, provided a new, high-resolution IP security system installed by Hikvision integrator ADT/Protection 1, to upgrade security for the Battleship North Carolina, a national historic landmark in Wilmington, N.C. A stationary nine-level ship and museum, the Battleship North Carolina is a memorial honouring the 11,000 North Carolina service members who perished in World War II, along with all veterans. Visitor attractions include mess halls, the engine room, the bridge, and the Combat Information Centre. Hikvision integrator partner ADT/Protection 1 upgraded the system and installed 45 new Hikvision cameras Replacing analogue surveillance “The combination of Hikvision camera models and thoughtful camera placement has produced a broad surveillance umbrella for the Battleship North Carolina landmark, and also has some amazing views,” said Jason Summers, commercial sales at ADT/Protection 1. The ship’s cabling posed the biggest challenge, Summers said. “The USS North Carolina had a team of volunteers that handled cabling onboard the ship. Once the old coax cabling was removed, connecting the cameras and network was relatively easy.” After completing a major network upgrade last fall, it was an ideal time to replace the battleship's aging analogue surveillance system. Hikvision integrator partner ADT/Protection 1 upgraded the system and installed 45 new Hikvision cameras. Hikvision 3 MP dome cameras, 2 MP 30x optical zoom PTZ cameras, 2 MP motorized zoom bullet cameras, and 2 MP turret cameras were placed throughout the main ship and the gift shop Recording capacity up to 40 days A mix of Hikvision 3 MP dome cameras, 2 MP 30x optical zoom PTZ cameras, 2 MP motorized zoom bullet cameras, and 2 MP turret cameras were placed throughout the main ship and the gift shop. Two Hikvision 32-channel NVRs with 6 TB of storage provide recorded footage up to 40 days. “Hikvision contributes to the communities where we live and work,” said Alex Asnovich, Head of Marketing, Hikvision North America. “With our integrators as partners, we are able to support the community and give back to memorials like the Battleship North Carolina.”
A surveillance system provided by Hikvision Canada Inc., a top provider of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and other emerging technologies, and the supplier of video surveillance products and solutions, was installed by Hikvision integrator Off Grid Surveillance Platforms (OGSP) to secure a building during the remodeling process for Ajax Hyundai in Ontario, Canada. Hikvision posted a case study about the project on its website. OGSP specialises in surveillance systems that operate off the electrical grid, harnessing the sun to power video surveillance and live monitoring equipment. The installation provided 360-degree, panoramic surveillance that doubled as a theft deterrent, while giving the dealership the flexibility to zoom in for further detail Dome cameras and NVR installation OGSP installed four Hikvision DS-2CE4A220IW-AE 2MP Network PTZ Dome cameras atop a 24-foot base, and a Hikvision Embedded Plug & Play NVR (3 TB capacity) in a trailer on the site. The installation provided 360-degree, panoramic surveillance that doubled as a theft deterrent, while giving the dealership the flexibility to zoom in for further detail, scan recorded video for footage, and check in remotely from Hikvision’s iVMS app via a smartphone or tablet. Hikvision’s weatherproof cameras function in temperatures down to -30 degrees Celsius. The system can also be live monitored by central stations 24/7, where trespassers can be requested to leave through active bullhorns, and police can be immediately dispatched. Hikvision technology offers cost effective solutions that deliver the best image and video quality on the market" Cost-effective real-time monitoring solutions Cable theft at construction sites and hydro installations is a significant problem in Canada, and people can be harmed by live wires. "To counter this problem, prevent injuries and even death, and reduce construction site theft, we devised a more diverse system providing greater power with reliable, real-time monitoring, via third parties and superior area coverage," said Jeff Mcilveen, owner of OGSP. Sean Harris, general manager for Ajax Hyundai, said, "Hikvision technology offers cost effective solutions that deliver the best image and video quality on the market. The diverse features and quality of the cameras is unmatched." Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA Inc. and Hikvision Canada Inc., said the project highlights "our deep focus on partnering with our customers and helping them keep their customers’ assets and property safe and secure."
Hikvision USA Inc., a global provider of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and other emerging technologies, along with video surveillance products and solutions, worked with Hikvision integrator TAS Electronics in New York to furnish a full-scale surveillance system for 'The Armadillo', a repurposed armored truck the Utica Police Department (UPD) uses to deter crime in the community. “When the decision was made to upgrade the Armadillo, the immediate concern was the camera system, because it is the lifeblood of any high quality digital video recording network. Knowing this, we demanded the best equipment available,” said Edward Noonan, deputy chief of police for the UPD. “Hikvision and TAS Electronics provided us with high resolution cameras that have the ability to see in the dark, and we can control these cameras remotely through an app on our smartphones with remarkably high resolution.”The Armadillo is a great example of our integrators collaborating with a local police department to deliver improved safety and security to their community" Improved community security Six Hikvision turret cameras and two Hikvision PTZ dome cameras were installed on the vehicle for comprehensive panoramic surveillance. To provide 65 days of video storage and recovery, TAS installed a 32-channel Hikvision Pro-Series DS-9616NI-I8 NVR with 12 TB of storage. Hikvision’s technology, combined with TAS’ expertise, resulted in a resource that improves crime monitoring and deterrence, making the streets safer for the citizens of Utica. “The Armadillo is a great example of our integrators collaborating with a local police department to deliver improved safety and security to their community,” said Alex Asnovich, Head of Marketing, Hikvision North America.
To grasp the current manufacturing trends and seize the Zeitgeist of Industry 4.0, a new smart IoT industrial park in Hangzhou has been put to use by Dahua Technology, a video surveillance solution provider. Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park occupies in total 512 acres in Fuyang district of Hangzhou, about 20 minutes’ drive from Dahua headquarters, designed to host 6000 staff (by 2017, 4500 people have been working/living in the 262 acres of phase one area). With topnotch technologies, personnel, materials and other benefits, Dahua’s smart industrial park will bring productivity and quality to a brand new level. Efficient information integration The automatic production solution based on integrated information system not only grants a higher productivity that significantly shortens the delivery cycle time for Dahua customers, but also a greater flexibility to specialised requests and ever-changing reality.The employment of software such as ERP, PLM, PDM, MES, APS and WMS helps to achieve information integration The employment of software such as ERP, PLM, PDM, MES, APS and WMS helps to achieve information integration, which, combined with industrial cameras, RFID sensory technologies and automation technologies, can integrate personnel, logistics, works, engineering projects and finance from respective sections of production(preparation, assembly, testing, packaging, inspection, shipment), rendering the whole process visible, traceable and digital. The mounter serves as a good synecdoche to illustrate the incredible efficiency of the whole production system. The concerning high-end devices (including mounter, printer, automated optical inspection equipment, Ersa reflow soldering tools, etc.) provided by ASM (originally Siemens) achieve a speed among the fastest in the world. Fast processing According to IPC standard, X4iS, the latest high-speed mounter can process 125,000 components per hour, or 35 per second. X35 multifunctional mounter can do 54000 components per hour, or 15 per second. A production line in X series can enhance the productivity by 2.7 times while reducing the consumption of energy by 52%, comparing to the original production line in D series under the same conditions. Dahua Smart Industrial Park provides the great benefit of internal synergy The faster speed also applies to the development of new molding, since Dahua Smart Industrial Park provides the great benefit of internal synergy, allowing the end-to-end vertical supply chain with marketing, R&D and manufacturing efficiently integrated. The advanced organising system is supported by topnotch equipment, such as MAKINO high-speed graphite processing machine, GF CNC, GF WEDM-LS machine, Hexagon 3D Nikon projectors and electronic displays. With a processing accuracy of +/-0.002 to +/-0.005MM, while also supporting CAD / CAM / CAE collaborative development and simultaneous manufacturing, these machines enable Dahua to develop new mechanical molding in as short as 7 days.Higher quality results in less likelihood for products to malfunction especially when they are used in critical situations Time- and cost-saving solution By far, this developing system has already produced high precision molding for Lechange Robots, monitoring cameras in TP1-TC6 series, G20 intelligent head-gears, smoke alarm for fire detectors, etc., all of which proving the effectiveness of the system in shortening the development cycle and keeping the competitive edge with new products in the business. Higher quality saves lots of time and economic costs for clients. Even more importantly, higher quality results in less likelihood for products to malfunction especially when they are used in critical, not-allowed-to-go-wrong situations. Dahua’s products are guaranteed with a higher quality for two reasons: first, Dahua has set a high standard of accuracy in production; second, with a reliability lab at the production end, Dahua has put together an effectively closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process. Accuracy has always been one vital index defining the manufacturing ability because it directly sets the limit to quality and range of products to be produced. Again, take the mounter mentioned above for example: it can process components, in metric size, as small as 03015(0.3x0.15mm), with a +-0.025mm SMD precision (within the 3-stigma range), boasting world leading performance and capable of covering basically all types of components used in the industry.Dahua industrial camera plays an important role in IoT, providing a closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process Enhanced vision and intelligent analytics Dahua industrial camera plays an important role in IoT, providing a closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process, in which all materials, personnel and devices are connected and products are traceable to the specific production line and precise time it got made. Boasting a variety of functions, Dahua industrial cameras are used in different sections of production, enabling automatic assembly, high-precision graphic inspection and product flaw inspection. Through high-definition machine vision, Dahua industrial cameras automatically and precisely locate the components, limiting the assembly error to micron level. Equipped with enhanced vision and intelligent analytics algorithm, the industrial camera can spontaneously detect and recognise flaws in the performance and outlook of products, thus promising not only the volume of cameras production but also the steady quality of each and every one of them.In the future phase, this industrial park is expected to be more intelligent to enable a safer society and smarter living Safe society and smart living Reliability must be put to test, in R&D as well as in manufacturing process. The reliability lab at the production end serves to assure quality by randomly taking products from production lines and put them into reliability tests simulating falling, high/low temperature, worn-out conditions, which are conducted by industry leading testing equipment in the lab. Thus what’s conceived in R&D is confirmed from the production line, the synergy of both ends promising better products (for common use or specialised needs). This lab is also responsible for testing all the raw materials. Thanks to the aforementioned information integration, all tests are automatically conducted, recorded and traceable. In conclusion, Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park is endowed with the latest and world leading manufacturing equipment/system boasting high level automation and intelligence, which is essential to satisfy the ever higher demands from clients in terms of delivery time, specialised use and quality. There is still great potential to this new smart industrial park. It is literally only in its phase one. And in the future phase, it is expected to be more intelligent, to realise client-centred flexible production and to enable a safer society and smarter living.
Round table discussion
The reviews are in, and ISC West was another hit. Brisk attendance and a comprehensive lineup of the industry’s top companies and products contributed to another successful show for Reed Exhibitions. Our Expert Panel Roundtable, who have attended many such events, added their own reflections to the industry’s post-ISC glow. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How successful was ISC West 2018 for security industry exhibitors and visitors?
A big trade show, such as the upcoming ISC West, has a lot to offer for attendees. If anything, a big show has “too much” to offer; there is certainly more to experience than any one person could get around to. How, then, can attendees maximise the value they get out of ISC West? For advice, we go to our Expert Panel Roundtable, all seasoned veterans of many big trade shows. Specifically, we asked this week’s panel: How can attendees get the most out of a big trade show like ISC West?
In tidying up after a year of Expert Panel Roundtable questions and answers, we came across some previously unpublished responses from our panel. These interesting responses address some of the hottest topics in the industry, from robots and deep learning to the “race to the bottom.” Taken together, the varied comments offer their own range of insights into the evolving physical security market. This week, we highlight some of these assorted Expert Panellist comments submitted over the last several months.
