Observer II   

The Observer II is a Hardware/Software solution that supports up to 5 depth image sensors to build up to five individual or aggregate fields of view for anonymously counting and tracking people. The software supports an increasing number of 3D depth sensors, using TOF or structured light sending technologies.

Like the Observer One - 3D imaging sensors used with the Observer II inherently do not invade privacy: No data can be acquired that would allow the identification of individuals. By supporting both TOF and/or structured light depth sensors, the system can be designed to accommodate for various mounting heights and ambient light conditions.

The Observer II provides computing power to conduct the analytics of up to five 3D depth image sensors, connected via Ethernet or USB. The Observer II is used whenever people counting or person tracking occurs in a larger area, or when the standard structure light 3D sensor used in the Observer One does not meet the requirements of the project.

Working with different 3D depth sensors, areas with mounting heights of up to 8 meters (26 ft.) can be covered, and disparate fields of view can effortlessly be joined together even if different types of 3D depth image sensors are used!

  • Privacy-protection

    3D depth image sensors eliminate the need for video-based surveillance and camera-based image acquisition & analysis. Privacy is protected by the very nature of the technology!

  • Accurate tracking of people indoors

    Accurate position of every person in the field of view in real-time. Designed to operate up to 5 depth image sensors on one Observer II, larger installations can be accomplished very economically

  • 3D depth sensors can connect via USB or Ethernet / PoE

    or both, at the same time. ADEC-built PoE splitter permits operation of SR 4000 and SR 4500 TOF sensors using a PoE-switch as well

  • Integrates and works with more 3D depth sensors as they become available

    The architecture of the Observer II is designed to easily integrate and take advantage of future 3D depth sensors as they become available

  • Auto configuration

    Configuration software automatically discovers Observer units and facilitates guided configuration of unlimited counting polygons and counting lines

standard

The people-tracker system has been developed with performance tracking in mind. 

  • Accurate real-time position of all individuals in monitored area (position error < 20 cm / 8 inches)
  • Choice of optimal 3D depth image sensor for the application - new depth image sensors are supported as they become available
  • Easily enlarge field of view by adding 3D depth image sensors and ObserverOne or Observer II units to optimally cover any desired area with mounting points as high as 8 m (26 ft)
  • Privacy guaranteed - no video / CCTV sensor is even being used!
