Set-and-forget surveillance cameras wake themselves up and call for help

 

Despite their advantages, digital security cameras are inconvenient. A new surveillance model reports on crime by itself.

 

Digital surveillance cameras have come a long way in a short time. They now combine very-high–quality images with autonomous operation and convenient sizes. Therefore, such devices are widely used in law enforcement.

Nevertheless, video surveillance remains costly, power hungry and complicated. Current systems are used mainly for recording and have very little capability for real-time scene interpretation.

The EU-funded FORENSOR project has developed a new sensor system that addresses these problems. The sensor is small and concealable; its low-power requirements free it from electrical infrastructure. The device can operate for months. Hence, the sensor is also capable of a degree of independent operation.
