AI technology to empower vertical markets

Issue 4 2023 Mining (Industry), CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

Dahua WizMind is a full portfolio of solutions comprising project-oriented products including IPC, NVR, PTZ, IVSS, thermal and software platform that use deep learning algorithms. Dahua has been improving its product offerings to provide more business value to its global customers and deliver reliable and comprehensive AI solutions for vertical markets.

WizMind can efficiently search for targets through attributes analysis. Both security and privacy of users are protected by AI algorithms and advanced fusion technologies.

Dahua’s privacy protection is GDPR compliant and overlays mosaic on the images of detected targets in real time. This year, Dahua released Privacy Protection+ which integrates privacy protection technology with a variety of deep learning algorithms, providing intelligent analysable data while protecting users’ security and privacy. Aside from front-end real-time mosaic, it also supports simultaneous usage with AI functions, free mosaic on selected targets, and irregular black block masking. It is suitable for a wide range of scenarios such as shopping malls, construction sites, nursing homes, operating rooms and more.

In addition, the PPE Detection technology of WizMind features deep learning algorithms that can detect and capture images of personal protective equipment on site and triggers alarms accordingly. It detects up to nine attributes (e.g. hats, work wear, masks), supports importing of work wear images via IPC/IVSS as the basis for localised modelling, training and comparison, and enables quick target location using different target attributes. It helps reduce the workload of safety management personnel and greatly improves employee safety in plants, factories, and other similar application scenarios.

WizMind’s Panoramic Surveillance is designed for scenario applications that require a 180°, 270°, and 360° view for situational awareness. It offers clear images with up to 8K ultra high-definition resolution, AR panorama that displays the video of the corresponding camera via AR tags, EPTZ function that can simultaneously monitor multiple human and vehicle targets that triggered the alarm (up to five targets), and AI features including perimeter protection, smart tracking, vehicle density detection, etc. It is used to monitor large scenes such as squares, urban roads, enterprise parks, entrance/exit areas, and more.

WizMind also includes a People Counting function that can track and process moving human targets in the monitored scene and offers accurate statistics of people entering, leaving and currently within the monitored area, generating useful data for business analysis. It includes Leaving Post Detection, Crowd Detection, People Counting for Line Crossing, People Counting in Area and Queue Management.

Vehicle-based applications

WizMind captures attributes of vehicles for easy management, quick search and efficient business analysis. Various application scenarios including roads, waterways and parking spaces are covered completely.

The video metadata technology of WizMind is equipped with deep learning algorithms that can efficiently locate human and vehicle targets based on attributes analysis. Depending on the algorithm version of the product model, it can detect more than ten human attributes, more than seven motor vehicle attributes and more than six non-motor vehicle attributes. Dahua also added target direction analysis and data statistics that can be used for business analysis. It is ideal for application scenarios that require constant monitoring of people and vehicles entering/leaving the premises such as industrial campuses and main roads.

Hydrological monitoring is a new feature of WizMind powered by Dahua’s self-developed algorithms. It is mainly used in areas with water resources such as rivers, seas and lakes. It comprises mainly Water Level Detection, Boat Detection and Floating Objects Detection, which primarily aid water management and analysis.

When a vehicle enters the monitored area, WizMind’s Parking Detection technology, based on CNN deep learning, will capture its images and save metadata. If illegal parking is detected, the system will sound warning audios through the built-in loudspeaker. It supports overlaying of license plate number and other violation information on the captured image as evidence and displays both panoramic and detail views simultaneously with wider detection range.

Thermal applications

With explosion proof certifications (ATEX and IECEx) and IP66 ingress protection, Dahua’s explosion-proof cameras provide online industrial temperature measurement with high accuracy, providing a new method to monitor equipment and pipelines during production. Aside from online temperature monitoring, it also offers intelligent inspection that can be achieved by editing the device list on the platform and linking it with the temperature monitoring camera.

Another WizMind thermal application is Boat Detection, which uses imaging thermal cameras powered by AI, enabling it to accurately detect and identify boats/ships. It offers different boat data measurements (e.g., height, speed, distance), anti-corrosion coating or 316L stainless steel housing, and all-weather operation.

Other features

The Dahua WizMind series is compatible with major third-party platforms. The Dahua Partner Alliances provide sufficient DHOP and API, allowing smooth and efficient integration with technology partners. All WizMind products have passed ONVIF conformance process.

This series is compatible with global video management systems, PSIM and alarm monitoring software (e.g., AxxonSoft, Digifort, Advancis, SoftGuard). It also supports advanced AI-based functions (e.g., ANPR, people counting, perimeter protection and heat map) with Qognify, Network Optix, Luxriot and other players in the industry.

The Dahua Hardware Open Platform enables users to customise the cameras based on their actual needs. It has more than 15 existing partners and more than 18 integrated applications. What’s more, WizMind cybersecurity effectively protects network security and user privacy. It deeply integrates actual business scenarios to help users understand the security status and capabilities of their devices and assists them in conveniently and quickly setting up the best security configuration for their scenarios.
