Prototype for Video Analytics with Edge CCTV

Title of I&T Wish Prototype for Video Analytics with Edge CCTV
(REF : W-0152)
Project Summary and Challenges

Video analytics helps provide effective information for optimising resources utilisation. With the use of edge computing technology, aggregate analytic results can be delivered to the target audience with low latency whilst lessening the concerns about issues such as privacy and data storage with the handling of raw data.

Video analytics can be applied in the following two scenarios:

  1. Install edge CCTV in the lift lobby to count the number of lift passengers-in-waiting
  2. Install edge CCTV in exhibition, seminar or training venue to collect and analyse information on the participants such as their demographics (e.g. age, gender and personal belongings)

In both scenarios, there are two challenges to be addressed in order to obtain the required statistics:

  1. People passing by the area of interest should not be included in the headcount and statistics
  2. Double or multiple counting of the same person
Expected Outcome Develop prototype for provision of video analytics by using Edge CCTV
Expected Project Duration 3 months
