Automatic Detection of Aggression in Crowds

Using our powerful video analytics algorithm on CCTV footage, aggression in crowds and large spaces can automatically be detected with high accuracy. Alerts are automatically generated as soon as aggression is detected, allowing for a direct response to prevent the situation from escalating. Around 99% of all video that is recorded by CCTV cameras is currently not being watched. Human operators can only monitor 3-4 streams at the same time and will lose focus after 30-40 minutes. Because of this, incidents like fights are not immediately noticed and can only be acted on after a bystander brings the situation to attention with the relevant parties (e.g. security/police/medical staff/etc.). Using our algorithm, an operator (in a control room or in the field) will only have to react on specific alerts and video clips that the system has classified as aggression. This way, one person can virtually ‘monitor’ dozens or even hundreds of CCTV cameras. Acts of aggression will be immediately detected and a swift course of action can be effected. After the situation has resolved, video footage of the event will be easily available and no longer requires intricate forensic searching of old recordings.
