Predictive analytics for outdoor surveillance

Issue 1 2021 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

Bosch has introduced the AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i with enhanced image quality and built-in artificial intelligence (AI) to help operators react before a potential situation occurs. Designed for outdoor surveillance applications when light levels vary, the AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i has a new 0,5-inch camera sensor offering 4 MP resolution and 20X optical zoom to detect people or objects at a maximum distance up to 1676 metres.

The camera is equipped with advanced motion-optimised high dynamic range (HDR-X) at 133 dB and starlight technology, which allows the camera to provide good image quality during daytime, and at lower light levels such as dusk and dawn, without blurring of moving objects. The camera is weatherproof, with a vandal-resistant housing expanding its use to demanding city surveillance situations.

Predictive insights to know what is next

Built-in AI, like video analytics, uses metadata to add sense and structure to video footage, enabling cameras to understand what they are seeing and giving customers a smart choice to know what is next. Because situations fluctuate, it is necessary to capture vital information under any circumstance.

The new AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i camera comes with built-in Essential Video Analytics to deliver actionable insights that help operators react before a possible threat or unwanted situation occurs. This built-in AI captures relevant data for uses such as enforcing traffic regulations, detecting vehicles driving in the wrong direction, and delivering occupancy data, such as the number of vehicles entering and leaving a parking garage for smarter, more efficient parking. When idle, the camera can provide relevant, usable statistics like the number of people entering a specific area, analyse behaviour, or assist in enforcing health and safety regulations such as raising awareness of a blocked emergency exit.
