How Can You Use Your Existing Cameras and IT Infrastructure to Gain Smart Data?

You want to gain smart insights into your business but don’t want to exchange your entire camera system for smart cameras? Investing in expensive counting systems is not an option for you? Now you have the chance to gain smart insights cost-efficiently using your existing cameras. How does this work? With a device for your camera, called the Swarm Perception Box. It’s a small device that enables you to gather smart real-time data with the latest AI technology, right at the camera location. The installation only needs power, internet connectivity, and a connection to the camera.

Easily control what data you get

After the plug and play installation, you can configure your device in the Swarm central management platform, using our detailed documentation. The great advantage of this self-service setup in the Swarm Control Center is that you can define the data collection according to your needs and requirements, making it fast and smart. As the picture below shows, you can draw counting areas or entry-exit-zones on the camera’s view to gather location-specific information. It only takes you a few clicks to set up and requires no special computer skills or programming knowledge. You can adjust the setup for every intersection or road. When you think about it, every street or intersection is different, so you should be able to adapt your data gathering accordingly.

What smart real-time data can you get?

As well as traffic data, as briefly described before, you can also gather smart parking, retail, and public transport data. Here is a short list of just some of the possibilities:

Retail

  • Identify the number of people entering and leaving your retail space
  • Coming soon: Estimate customers’ age range and presented gender

Traffic

  • Identify the flow of road users across intersections, sidewalks, and bike paths with entry and exit zones.

  • Identify cars, buses, trucks, cyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians with smart object classification

Parking

  • Recognize the occupancy rate of parking spots

  • Identify parking vehicle classes including cars, vans, motorcycles, and trucks

Public Transport

  • Identify the number of people in public transport vehicles and stops or stations
  • Coming soon: Estimate passengers’ age range and presented gender

What are the benefits?

  • It’s fast to deploy as it works with your exiting cameras
  • Make better decisions faster. You get real-time data fast, as we analyse video streams in real-time 24/7 at up to 30+ Frames per Second (FPS).
  • It’s easy to integrate into your infrastructure as we use standard Cloud, IoT and Edge Technologies
  • It’s massively scalable. 1000s of Swarm Perception Boxes could be easily managed via our central management
  • It’s much more affordable than counting systems or smart-cameras. We offer transparent and fair pricing, via a predictable all-inclusive annual fee.
  • You save time and money by purchasing only the smart component you need
  • Our smart box is a software defined sensor, meaning that new features and improvements are automatically delivered at no extra cost
