Why mobile video surveillance will replace typical outdoor systems

We’re in the middle of a paradigm shift in how security systems are viewed and implemented. Just like mobile phones dethroned landlines, mobile video surveillance is replacing fixed outdoor systems. And for many of the same reasons. The mobility, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of mobile surveillance systems give operators unprecedented freedom in deploying and maintaining their systems.

Modern, industry-redefining video surveillance systems: STROPS’ story

It feels like video surveillance systems are everywhere… except where they’re needed most. 

A waste disposal facility will have a dozen cameras on every corner to ensure people don’t dump their waste without proper payment, so what do people do? They throw their garbage out into a remote forest clearing – no cameras there.

Nearly a decade ago, we realized that surveillance issues, namely, monitoring areas that have none of the infrastructure necessary for surveillance, aren’t a problem of will. They’re a problem of technology. Read more…

EU Project conclusion

On 31.12.2021 completed a research project in the action programme “Growth and Employment”, specific support goal 1.2.1 “Increase of private sector investments in S&D (Search & Development), activity 1.2.1.1 “Support for the Development of New Products and Technologies Within the Competence Centre’s”, name of the research project: “Developing a modular multi-source power solution for mobile video surveillance”.

As a result of the research, balancing of several power supply solutions was developed and compared, finding a method that provides low losses, minimal heating, as well as fast balancing with high current.

An algorithm for determining the residual energy of batteries was studied, inspecting and evaluating the remaining energy within one cycle. The causes of battery wear were also investigated,  performing tests with recharging and discharging of batteries, determining the criteria for which faster replacement of batteries is required.

As a result of the research, tests were performed to balance battery wear, within the aim of finding a way to prolong battery life, concluding that batteries are recommended to wear at a steady rate.

In general, the goals set in the beginning of the project were achieved by confirming the initial hypotheses and assumptions.

 


 

31.12.2020 noslēdzās STROPS Technologies, SIA īstenotais pētniecības projekts darbības programmas “Izaugsme un nodarbinātība” 1.2.1. specifiskā atbalsta mērķa “Palielināt privātā sektora investīcijas P&A” 1.2.1.1. pasākuma “Atbalsts jaunu produktu un tehnoloģiju izstrādei kompetences centru ietvaros”. Pētniecības projekta nosaukums: “Mērogojama kompleksa vairāku avotu barošanas risinājuma izstrāde mobilai video novērošanai”.

Pētījuma rezultātā tika izstrādāta un salīdzināta vairāku barošanas risinājumu balansēšana, atrodot metodi, kas nodrošina mazus zudumus, minimālu sasilšanu, kā arī ātru balansēšanu ar lielu strāvu.

Tika izpētīts bateriju atlikušās enerģijas noteikšanas algoritms, apskatot un novērtējot enerģiju viena cikla ietvaros. Tā pat tika izanalizēti arī bateriju nolietošanās cēloņi, veicot testus ar bateriju atkārtoti uzlādi un izlādi, nosakot kritērijus, pie kuriem nepieciešama bateriju ātrāka nomaiņa.

Pētījuma rezultātā tika veikti arī testi bateriju nolietojuma balansēšanai, ar mērķi atrast veidu, kā paildzināt bateriju darbības mūžu, secinot, ka visas baterijas vairāku bateriju iekārtā vislabāk ieteicams nolietot vienmērīgā ātrumā.

Kopumā secināts, ka projektā izvirzītie mērķi tika sasniegti, apstiprinot sākotnēji izvirzītās hipotēzes un pieņēmumus.

Thermal screening solutions

The new and autonomous Mobile Video Surveillance Technology is an opportunity for (train) station operators to improve how they are working to reduce crime and play a greater role in safeguarding “vulnerable” people who might be at stations. Having a well-managed station provides reassurance to both passengers and staff that the station is a safe and secure environment.
Train station operators recognize that security and safety can be improved through the flexibility of mobile surveillance systems and their rapid deployment features for example at train yards, train parking- and cargo areas, it will show quick improvements with minimal financial investments. The design and implementation of new mobile video surveillance provides an opportunity to strengthen security in areas that are currently lacking any oversight.

Mobile Video Surveillance can:
• reduce crime levels, thus reducing operating expenditure (due to vandalism, graffiti, and lost time incidents)
• can be used in areas with no electrical connections (remote location)
• detect night-time trespassing or theft
• reduce the risk of theft at Train cargo terminals, reducing the potential for harm or even suicide.
• reduce insurance cost
• improve passenger confidence to travel, increasing ridership and revenue.
• generate positive publicity for the operator, potentially helping to leverage third party investment.

Train Stations are alive and today patterns might change tomorrow therefore a flexible surveillance will move with change of patterns without costly infrastructure investments.
