Garbage disposal, ANPR ticketing and other city surveillance needs: how to do in Xeoma

Garbage disposal
Is it concerning illegal dumping in forests and such places? The realization might depend on factors like what kind of garbage is disposed of, by pedestrians or by machines, is this place crowded (prone to movement) or

For now ANPR can be used to detect cars where they are not supposed to be (as well as collect information about their license plates). And loitering detector or detector of abandoned objects can be used to detect different objects in the area.

Face Recognition can be used if the illegal dumping is done by an individual, etc. Also, Object recognizer can be used to detect specific objects e.g. only cars, or only people (cars, people, buses, animals etc.) in a camera’s field of view.

Violence and Vandalism detection
The solution depends on the kind of violence that needs to be detected. For example, if violence is accompanied by screams, gunshot, glass break etc., the Sound Events detector can be utilized. Sometimes, Emotion Recognition can be used to predict aggressive behavior too, etc.
For vandalism the Detector of Abandoned Objects might be used (looks for changing of scenery by addition or extraction of objects).

Breaches to sensitive areas
Xeoma offers different modules for this task – from simple motion detector, Sound Events detector (detection of glass windows breaking), Object recognizer (detection of people, cars or animals in the restricted area), Face ID Double Authentication, to Face recognition or ANPR with black lists.

Traffic Monitoring + ANPR
Solution depends on what exactly is needed. We have Speed radar modules, Color recognition (to detect traffic lights violation) and, of course, ANPR module to recognize license plates.

Parking enforcement + ANPR for ticketing

First, you need to enable one of the options to allow recognition of the license plates of your country, see options at the ANPR page. Most countries are supported with either the OpenALPR tool or the new PlateRecognizer (available in the Xeoma’s beta 20.6.19 and newer). There’s also additional ANPR module in Xeoma to detect license plates of particular countries.

Both require licenses from the corresponding companies so you are advised to google them and request their pricing, and then select what is best for your projects.
After that you can set up and test the selected tool in Xeoma.
And after LPR works for your country’s LPs, we can go further to helping you make it work in combination with establishing ‘illegal parking’ event and sending information to external systems. For example, we have a module called ANPR Sender to FTP – this module sends the pics and xml files of detected LPs, will that work for you?

Also, there’s the Parking Spots Additional module of the Xeoma video surveillance software. It is used to automatically determine and update the status (empty/occupied) of parking spaces in a parking lot (when used in combination with Object Recognition or ANPR modules). When used in combination with other Xeoma modules, can be used to detect change of the “free/taken” status of other object types in other spheres (cinema, etc.).

Please share some more details and together we’ll make it work tailored for your individual case.
