Bosch Carves Insights For Security Sector

Bosch states the UAE launch of Intelligent Insights, an affordable software solution that enables customers to use data in new ways. It brings together every element from scene to screen, from intelligent cameras enabling video data capture and interpretation, to the visualization and reporting of data in one simple overview. Bosch’s Intelligent Insights claim that customers can now make best use of this data to improve security and safety further enabling them to make informed business decisions in this competitive market.

From scene to screen
Intelligent Insights uses Bosch cameras’ built-in intelligence (Video Analytics) to interpret video images and captures camera metadata from situations involving moving objects, people counting, and crowd detection. The software tool then collects, aggregates, and displays this information using a series of pre-defined widgets enabling users to visualize and evaluate a complete scene from a simple overview screen. Based on this, users can react faster and more efficiently, making better-informed decisions and improving overall security and safety. Intelligent Insights can be used standalone or seamlessly integrated with other systems to enhance situational awareness further.

Usable data delivered in two ways
Usable data can be visualized in two ways: as a widget and as a report. All widgets are displayed in a simple dashboard that allows users to select and display only the widgets that they need at any given time. The report functions as a more detailed post analysis, helping users adjust and alter actions in the future.

Series of capabilities
Intelligent Insights comes with a series of widgets, all of which contribute to specific safety and security needs. Area fill level, Occupancy counting and Crowd detection offer the ability to monitor and detect crowds accurately and count individuals and objects.
Intelligent Insights also offers Object counting and People counting. Object counting enables users to accurately count the number of vehicles or customer defined objects within the field of view of one or more cameras. People counting is used to count individuals, for example, when entering or leaving a building. This widget can aggregate the counting information from multiple cameras to provide users with an early warning when a sudden increase of people is detected, indicating a potential security issue. With the Object positioning widget, users can get a real time overview of all objects moving in a certain area.

Future proof solution
Intelligent Insights starts with a basic license that includes all widgets and one dashboard, displaying 16 widgets. When needed, dashboards and widgets can be added according to customer needs and requirements. Furthermore, when customers use Bosch Intelligent Video Analytics, output and data from the Camera Trainer technology (included in Intelligent Video Analytics) like counting statistics of customer-specific objects can be visualized and reported. All this, combined with new widgets and functionalities incorporated in forthcoming updates and versions, makes Intelligent Insights a future-proof solution.

Integration with Bosch Video Management System
Intelligent Insights is not only a standalone software package but also designed for seamless integration. When integrated with the video management system of Bosch (BVMS), users can manage their live and recorded video streams and Intelligent Insights data within one unified graphical user interface (GUI). This integration eliminates the need to switch between multiple applications to get a complete picture of the situation. Another advantage of the integration with BVMS is that customers can enhance their video security solution to an integrated security solution that covers intrusion detection with B and G Series and access control management with the Access Management System 3.0.

With the launch of Intelligent Insights, Bosch has introduced a software solution that brings new insights to the security and safety industry.
