Vision based occupancy sensor uses ObjectVideo intelligence

ObjectVideo : 25 September, 2009  (Application Story)
Using technology from Texas Instruments and ObjectVideo, Lyrtech has released the Intelligent Occupancy Sensor for the detection, counting and tracking of people or objects
Lyrtech, a company specialising in digital signal processing technology, has announced the official release of its Intelligent Occupancy Sensor (IOS), a new, high-performance intelligent occupancy sensing solution that offers a low cost, vision-based platform to detect, track and count objects or people.

As a leading design house, Lyrtech will deliver the IOS to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market, customizing it for customers who manufacture end products.

"We are extremely excited about this product, which addresses a variety of existing and emerging markets using older motion detection technologies. With this mix of powerful technologies, we can address the need for more energy-efficient buildings, improve business information gathering and even, in some applications, improve workflows," said Louis Bélanger, president and CEO of Lyrtech.

The IOS's intelligence is supplied by ObjectVideo's Event Counting Suite technology, which is used to apply rules to the IOS video to generate a stream of counting events that can be put to various uses for building automation and business intelligence gathering. Further, with the ObjectVideo analytics as an embedded technology, the IOS only outputs data, eliminating privacy concerns and the need for excessive video servers.

"The implementation of the Event Counting Suite in the IOS opens the door to growing market segments seeking a cost-effective way to distribute full video intelligence coverage throughout a building, hospital, or retail operation," said Bob Cutting, vice president of product management at ObjectVideo. "Lyrtech has been an ideal partner to bring together the ObjectVideo technology and a flexible, easy-to-configure IOS form factor that can effectively be integrated with lighting controls, HVAC systems and workflow processes while not compromising privacy or requiring extensive video systems to support."

The IOS processes analogue video from external sources or from its onboard image sensor through a powerful digital media processor based on DaVinci technology from Texas Instruments (TI). TI's digital media processors based on DaVinci technology consist of scalable, programmable digital signal processors with accelerators and peripherals optimized for a broad spectrum of Digital Video end equipments.

"TI's digital media processors offer the right combination of price and performance to enable exciting new vision-based applications like Lyrtech's Intelligent Occupancy Sensor," said Brooke Williams, vision business unit manager at TI. "TI looks forward to helping innovative companies make use of this new technology to create applications that dramatically improve efficiency in many market segments."

The IOS is also available as a generic prototype that can be used as a reference design as well as a turnkey demonstration platform. As an advanced video prototype, the IOS is a powerful development platform for creating innovative applications that make use of ObjectVideo intelligent video analytics. The reference design configuration includes a robust set of communications and accessory components that can be used or removed as necessary for final product design.
