Computer Vision for Law Enforcement

Technology need image

Request #: 86452555
Computer vision technologies are playing key roles in law enforcement. The accurate detection and identification of events, for example, is an important capability for law enforcement officials. Application of video recognization and analytics systems include license plate recognition, red light monitoring, vehicle occupancy detection, speed enforcement, driver behavior and parking.

Potential Applications

Rapid analysis of large video databases: In some applications, very rapid analysis of large video data- bases can aid a critical life-or-death situation. ABC Widgets researchers' work in adaptive compression and compatible decompression methods have made it possible to efficiently search for vehicles in large video databases. When sufficient information is available about a law enforcement-related incident (e.g., vehicle description, plate number, color, etc.), a search can be conducted across large databases of video that have been acquired from highway, local road, traffic light, and stop sign monitoring, to track and find a suspect, missing person (Amber/Silver Alert situations).

Video-based Parking: The richness of information acquired with video cameras compared to other roadway sensors (e.g., magnetic or ultrasonic) can aid parking law enforcement applications. For example, computer vision can be used to detect short-term parking violations and parking boundary violations. It also can be used to provide information about parking space by detecting if an area on the street is occupied and then determining how much space remains available around the parked car.

ABC Widget's Recently Closed Featured Needs

The following Featured Needs are Closed to Submission and are Currently Under Review by ABC Widget Company. Respondents will be notified individually.

Cloud-Based Risk Analytics

Many companies and organizations use data simulations to model revenues and profit and analyze strategies. These simulations consume computing resources and take time.

Video Analytics for Retail

Video analytics can be instrumental in optimizing performance through automated behavior analysis of the customer, worker, and environment.

Social Media Analytics

Social media data mining is all about analyzing billions of comments in real time. ABC Widget researchers add value to this concept by helping businesses use information mined from social media to automate and improve two key business processes: making sales and improving customer satisfaction.

Lean Document Production and Design

For any business, staying productive, competitive and relevant is a daily challenge. Production manufacturing environments are no exception. When processes are designed to run at optimal efficiency, notable savings and productivity gains can be achieved.

Computer Vision for Intelligent Transportation Systems

Transportation systems, the lifeblood of our economic and social lives, are far from their ideal state. Vehicular congestion is a leading cause of lost productivity.
