Video as a Sensor

Video Intelligence

Video as a Sensor utilizes artificial intelligence to turn a live video feed into a smart sensor and alerting system that can help operations teams be safer and better informed – analyzing and identifying trends at both the macro and micro level.

With machine learning, the solution is continuously improving based on the review and input of key personnel. It is capable of detecting facility workers vs intruders, personnel in unsafe or prohibited facility zones, missing safety gear, stray animals, moving vehicles (for example, an unmanned train or truck that slipped its chocks), and practically any other scenario that you teach the system to recognize.

When an incident occurs, the system automatically saves the footage and alerts the operator. He can then review the anomaly, as well as what occurred directly before and after, to determine the cause and provide an expedited resolution. Video capture is especially important for compliance, as it provides proof of the condition of assets as they arrive and depart from a customer’s facility.

With a near real-time alerting system in place to monitor unplanned incidents, facility personnel are free to focus on their more critical and timely responsibilities.

Object detection technology: The next big thing

Seagate Technology inspects tens of millions of computer storage drive parts daily. The media that goes into them. The heads. The wafers. The completed assemblies and outer shells. For much of the company's history, this inspection was a time-consuming and costly process. To achieve the quality the global company’s customers expect, hard disk and solid-state drives would be tested once, twice, or even three times before human beings gave them a final blessing in what’s known as sequential in…

What the intelligent edge is and why it’s useful

The term "Intelligent Edge" is used in many ways, but perhaps the best way to think of it is as a place. The edge is where the action is. It's a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, your house, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a telecommunications outpost, a sports arena, a battlefield, in your car, in the sky, or under the sea. It's everywhere everything is, and it's where the "things" are in the Internet of Things (IoT). The edge is "intelligent" because …

Edge computing yields deeper insights, faster

Edge computing drives smarter operations in every industry. Learn how. There are many different kinds of edges: a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a sports arena, and more. Massive amounts of data are created and can be collected and analyzed at every edge. When used in context, and in a timely manner, this real-time data can yield all sorts of interesting insights. Edge computing use cases include: Improving saf…
