The solution for fast person identification and tracking (IVSearch) leverages AI image analysis to refine monitoring operations and help improve efficiency
Reducing the monitoring workload and improving work efficiency
This solution quickly identifies and tracks specific persons by using AI (artificial intelligence) that has learned the features of the persons recorded in footage from surveillance or other cameras.
The demand for surveillance cameras has been increasing in recent years due to increased security awareness. However, it is unrealistic to rely on visual checking of massive amounts of video data to find and track specific persons, such as suspects or lost children. Such manual checking requires considerable time and expense.
That’s where the solution for fast person identification and tracking (IVSearch) comes in. This solution offers the following three functionalities, which are used to analyze personal features, search camera footage for a specific person, and track that person.
The following describes a case example of a large public facility that introduced the solution for fast person identification and tracking (IVSearch). This solution enabled the facility to quickly identify target persons and track them by using surveillance camera footage.
Formerly, to find a specific person, staff members at this public facility had to visually check the videos recorded by surveillance cameras. There were approximately 2,000 surveillance cameras installed in various locations, so finding and tracking a specific person required a considerable amount of time.
After introducing the solution for fast person identification and tracking (IVSearch), the customer gained the following benefits:
We expect to combine the solution for fast person identification and tracking (IVSearch) with the incident detection solution* and thereby contribute to enhanced security.
The incident detection solution performs AI image analysis of people’s postures. If a person performs unusual movements, enters a prohibited area, or leaves their belongings behind for a long time, the system detects such behavior and classifies it as abnormal, suspicious, or hazardous. If such behavior is detected, the incident panel displays an alert. This prevents users from overlooking any such incident and reduces the workload related to monitoring.
By connecting these solutions, we expect to reduce the risk of incidents and accidents occurring in public facilities, which require complex and diverse solutions. In this way, our solutions will contribute to safety and peace of mind in society.

Hitachi offers AI technology that analyzes surveillance camera footage, identifies target persons, and tracks them. This technology can also be applied to business areas other than security‑related businesses.
As an example of use, a company could analyze videos from a shopping center, identify the personal features of shoppers, and collect various types of information (for example, how the number of shoppers changes depending on the weather or seasonal events). This helps the company to examine and implement the right marketing strategies.
