  • Publication number: 20220201202
    Abstract: A device, method and system for installing video analytics parameters at a video analytics engine is provided. An example device determines that a classification of a first camera is one or more of similar to, and same as, a respective classification of at least one second camera. The example device retrieves, from a memory, video analytics parameters associated with the at least one second camera, the video analytics parameters stored at the memory in association with the respective classification. The example device causes installing of the video analytics parameters at a video analytics engine associated with the first camera.

  • Publication number: 20220198195
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for implementing an automated analytics for insuring compliance for a thermographic protocol for subjects seeking a temperature check, perhaps for entrance or access to a controlled space or facility. The automated video analytics utilize one or more cameras to detect thermography compliance violations based on whether the subject is perspiring, dehydrated, recently consumed a beverage, has exposed skin, excessive clothing, the amount and type of activity before getting screened, and/or the external and internal temperatures at the controlled facility associated with the subject. Furthermore, the automated video analytics may create a non-compliance score and/or control a timer for a non-compliance detection. Also, short and long term collected data may be analyzed for compliance to guidelines.

  • Patent number: 11326956
    Abstract: One example temperature sensing device includes an electronic processor configured to receive a thermal image of a person captured by a thermal camera. The electronic processor is configured to determine a first temperature and a first location of a first hotspot on the person. The electronic processor is configured to determine a second location of a second hotspot on the person based on the second location being approximately symmetrical with respect to the first location about an axis, and the second hotspot having a second temperature that is approximately equal to the first temperature. The electronic processor is configured to determine a distance between the first location of the first hotspot and the second location of the second hotspot. In response to determining that the distance is within the predetermined range of distances, the electronic processor is configured to generate and output an estimated temperature of the person.

  • Patent number: 11303877
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and techniques for enhancing use of two-dimensional (2D) video analytics by using depth data. Two-dimensional image data representing an image comprising a first object is obtained, as well as depth data of a portion of the image that includes the first object. The depth data indicates a depth of the first object. An initial 2D classification of the portion of the image is generated using the 2D image data without using the depth data. The initial 2D classification is stored as an approved 2D classification when the initial 2D classification is determined consistent with the depth data. Additionally or alternatively, a confidence level of the initial 2D classification may be adjusted depending on whether the initial 2D classification is determined to be consistent with the depth data, or the depth data may be used with the 2D image data for classification.

  • Publication number: 20220036047
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for performance monitoring and feedback for facial recognition systems. A first image for image matching from a camera capture device at a first location is received for purposes of image matching. A highest match confidence score of the first image to a particular stored enrollment image is determined. One or more image or user characteristics associated with the first image or first user is identified. The identified image or user characteristics and highest match confidence score are added to a facial recognition monitoring and feedback model. Subsequently, a particular one of the stored image or user characteristics consistently associated with a below-threshold highest match confidence score is identified, and a notification is displayed or transmitted including an indication of an identified facial recognition low match pattern and identifying the particular one of the stored image characteristics or user characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20210337109
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling camera settings of a camera to improve detection of faces in an uncontrolled environment are described. A first image is received from the camera, where the first image is captured by the camera at a first set of camera settings. A face is detected in the first image. The camera is adjusted to a second set of camera settings based on the detected face, where the second set of camera settings different from the first set of camera settings. A second image is received from the camera, where the second image is captured by the camera at the second set of camera settings. The face is detected in the second image. A quality metric of the face in the second image is determined where the quality metric is indicative of an image quality of the face in the second image.

  • Publication number: 20210271869
    Abstract: Alias capture to support searching for an object-of-interest is disclosed. A method includes capturing, using a camera with a defined field of view, video image frames that include a moving object-of-interest. The method also includes tracking the object-of-interest over a period of time starting when the object-of-interest enters the field of view and ending when the object-of-interest exits the field of view. The method also includes detecting, at a point in time in-between the start and end of the period of time of the tracking, a threshold exceeding change in an appearance of the object-of-interest. The method also includes creating, before the end of the period of time of the tracking, a new object profile for the object-of-interest in response to the detecting of the threshold exceeding change.

  • Publication number: 20210264577
    Abstract: A system and method for improving a video characteristic of a video stream is described. According to various implementations of the invention, a changed region between a later-in-time image frame and an earlier-in-time image frame and an unchanged region between such two image frames are determined. A new improvement to the video characteristic is determined and applied to the changed region of the later-in-time image frame. A prior improvement to the video characteristic that was determined for the earlier-in-time image frame is applied to the unchanged region of the later-in-time image frame.

  • Patent number: 11023707
    Abstract: A cropped bounding box selection operation is performed on a video captured by a video capture and playback system, to select one or more cropped bounding boxes from the video for processing by a face detection operation. The cropped bounding box selection operation identifies objects from the video images and assigns a ranking to each identified object based on certain priority criteria; one or more cropped bounding boxes corresponding to the objects with the highest ranking(s) are then processed by the face detection operation to detect a face in each object.

  • Publication number: 20210051312
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and techniques for enhancing use of two-dimensional (2D) video analytics by using depth data. Two-dimensional image data representing an image comprising a first object is obtained, as well as depth data of a portion of the image that includes the first object. The depth data indicates a depth of the first object. An initial 2D classification of the portion of the image is generated using the 2D image data without using the depth data. The initial 2D classification is stored as an approved 2D classification when the initial 2D classification is determined consistent with the depth data. Additionally or alternatively, a confidence level of the initial 2D classification may be adjusted depending on whether the initial 2D classification is determined to be consistent with the depth data, or the depth data may be used with the 2D image data for classification.
