Bosch is displaying its range of intelligent cameras at ITS America 2018, featuring built-in intelligent video analytics for ITS applications. “[They offer] reliability and the best image quality you can get,” says Constant Rutter, marketing and application design for transportation, at Bosch Security Systems.
Durability is also key, he went on: “Once it’s there, it’ll stay there forever, which is important for traffic.” Products on display include the MIC-9000i (near right, with regional sales manager Jerry Albrecht) and MIC-7000i. Bosch says it will soon introduce new firmware that adds machine learning to its analytics capabilities, enabling the cameras to learn to recognise new object types.
This can be used for parking and queue detection – for instance, learning whether a parking spot is free or occupied. Bosch video analytics captures metadata from each scene - such as classification and counting information for people, bicycles, cars and trucks. A new data collection service from the company gathers and stores this data in a format that is readily accessible in a database, allowing comprehensive analysis and reporting via third-party dashboard tools.
The manufacturer is hosting a pedestrian detection V2X demonstration at the corner of Griswold and Jefferson, a short walk from the Cobo Center in Detroit.
