Breaking New Ground in Perimeter Security with Velodyne 3D Lidar and accur8vision

Conventional security systems typically monitor the perimeter of a guarded area but have blind spots when it comes to tracking an intruder who has moved inside a guarded area. Lidar-based systems offer the potential to vastly improve public safety and security performance by guarding the entire area of a patrolled space.

Volumetric detection provided by accur8vision and Velodyne lidar solutions allows and entire guarded area to be detected, rather than just the perimeter that is detected by a conventional linear system

A webinar conducted by experts from Velodyne Lidar and Tacticaware reviewed how using lidar technology can advance threat detection and improve perimeter security.

Vanessa Johnson, Key Account Manager at Tacticaware, discussed her company’s accur8vision volumetric security system, which uses Velodyne Ultra Puck™ sensors to generate real-time 3D maps and allow companies to easily define and monitor customized digital boundaries. The Velodyne sensors provide an incredibly close real-time view into an area as well as any people and objects in the space, in all lighting conditions.

“The real world is three dimensional. That’s why we believe security systems must also be three dimensional – to match the real environment,” said Vanessa. “accur8vision allows users to know the exact location, size, speed and trajectory of an intruder and track an incident in real time.”

The webinar explored accur8vision’s capabilities, including intuitive drag & drop planning tools that add lidar, cameras and alarm zones, and guide system designers where to place items for optimal coverage. accur8vision allows designers to navigate through the map with a virtual intruder to simulate the real movement of intruders and verify system accuracy before installation.

Vanessa also reviewed how accur8vision can be used to monitor social distancing at worksites. The system allows companies to set distances people should remain apart from each other with an alarm triggered when social distancing is breached.

Dieter Gabriel, Velodyne’s Marketing Manager EMEA, discussed how Velodyne’s lidar technology is powering a new generation of safety and security solutions, such as accur8vision. “Velodyne sensors help companies to easily define and monitor customized digital boundaries. They enable highly reliable and consistent detection, tracking and counting of objects and people, day or night,” said Dieter.
