Object recognition on the highway

Object recognition can aid in the Safe city program

Everyone knows that road (especially highway) is a place of increased danger. But technologies are the key, so nowadays almost every road is equipped with ip cameras.

Usually, pedestrian crossings on the highway are located far away from each other, and cars’ speed is pretty high. And some people often decide to cross the road in undesignated areas that may cause road traffic accident and become a tragedy for both pedestrians and drivers.

The question is: How to avoid such cases?

New Xeoma’s function “Object type recognition” may come to rescue. Object recognition can automatically classify objects in the camera field of view (person, car, animal, bird, motorcycle, etc.) and respond – or ignore – to selected types of objects. “Object recognition” is ideal in environments where there is movement expected in the field of view, and you need the system to respond (or not respond) only to a certain type of object. It can be configured to recognize people, so this way cameras on the highway will be able to easily trace trespassers and notify necessary emergency services that may help to decrease the amount of law violations and prevent many road traffic accidents in general.

Same practice can be used in the case of animals accidentally crossing the road.

Object recognition is helpful in streets as well as in highways

By the way, object recognition will be helpful in the city as well. It can be used to register violations and bring people crossing the road in undesignated areas to justice. This opportunity will be irreplaceable especially on dangerous sections of the road with poor visibility.

It is also important to record speed limit violations within projects such as “Safe City”. The “Vehicle speed detector” Additional module in Xeoma allows you to find and identify vehicles violating the speed limit in the monitored area. This module works in conjunction with the “License plate recognition” module, which detects a vehicle in the frame, looks for a license plate and recognizes its symbols, and the “ISKRA DA/40” hardware speed meter appliance, which refers data about speed limit violations to Xeoma. This combination can be used in conjunction with a system for automatic imposing fines in projects such as “Safe City”. Read about License plate recognition module here.
