  • Patent number: 11281914
    Abstract: A vehicle monitoring system includes at least one camera, and a server that is communicably connected to the camera and a client terminal. The camera captures a license plate and an occupant's face of a vehicle entering an angle of view of the camera, and transmits a captured video to the server. The server acquires an analysis result of the license plate, analysis results of a type and a color of the vehicle, an analysis result of the occupant's face, and an analysis result of the number of occupants based on the captured video, and accumulates the acquired analysis results as analysis results of the captured video, and sends the analysis result to the client terminal in correlation with a snapshot of the captured video.

  • Publication number: 20210374429
    Abstract: A vehicle monitoring system includes at least one camera, and a server that is communicably connected to a client terminal. The camera performs capturing a vehicle while switching a first capturing condition including an image parameter for capturing a number of the vehicle entering an angle of view of the camera and a second capturing condition including an image parameter for capturing an occupant's face of the vehicle, and transmits a first captured video under the first capturing condition and a second captured video under the second capturing condition to the server. The server arranges reproduction screens for the first captured video and the second captured video that are reproduceable in the client terminal and displays the reproduction screens on the client terminal based on the first captured video and the second captured video.

  • Patent number: 11164018
    Abstract: An identification device includes a processor configured to acquire a result of determining, based on a part of an image with a moving object which does not include a face of an occupant on the moving object, whether the occupant is an identification target, and to identify the face of the occupant based on an image including the face of the occupant if the result indicates that the occupant is the identification target.

  • Patent number: 11163977
    Abstract: A capturing camera has a lens block that includes a lens for focusing light from a subject including a face of a person riding in a vehicle and a license plate of the vehicle, an image sensor that performs a capturing process based on the light from the subject focused by the lens, and a processor that generates a face image of the person riding in the vehicle and a license plate image of the vehicle, corresponding to a same vehicle, based on a captured image of the subject generated by the capturing process. The processor has the image sensor perform the capturing process using a plurality of capturing conditions at a time of capturing based on the light from the subject.

  • Patent number: 11102410
    Abstract: In installation work, a camera captures a vehicle including an occupant and a license plate of the vehicle in a view angle from an installation position of the camera and transmits, to the terminal, a captured image of the occupant and a captured image of the license plate in response to a setting request from a terminal. The terminal displays a setting screen including the captured image of the occupant and the captured image of the license plate, receives input of parameters including an operation mode of the camera and positional relationship information indicating a positional relationship between the camera and the vehicle according to manipulations of an operator, and transmits the input parameters to the camera. The camera derives and sets camera parameters corresponding to the operation mode based on the input parameters transmitted from the terminal.
