Ai-RGUS is an automated, AI and deep learning software solution to eliminate the worry of missing video evidence. The only currently existing solution to this problem is a process called “manual verification” which is when a person examines the view of each camera in the system in order to find any viewing problems. This process is time-consuming, expensive, and very subjective.
With Ai-RGUS, you can rest assured knowing that you can count on an essential piece of equipment (i.e., your camera system) while saving money and saving operational overhead on the manual, human labor that will only achieve a lower level of certainty. Ai-RGUS is a must-have for any organization that values the importance of its video evidence.
Taking into account all the factors required for a robust manual verification process, it takes approximately 20 seconds to verify a single camera. This figure includes pulling current camera images from the VMS, getting each camera’s reference image(s), comparing the images, quality control, and breaks. The benefits of using an automated system is compared to manual verification in the table.
Ai-RGUS uses AI and deep learning to automatically compare the current view of the camera against an approved reference view. It provides daily reports and automated alerts notifying you of the unhealthy cameras along with a diagnosis (e.g., blurry image, tilted view, blocked view, low-light, glare, feed down). In addition, it monitors the more time-sensitive conditions such as low-light, glare, and feed down up to every hour.
