Release Digest

Wide-area people-tracking system using this technology

Hitachi today announced the development of a detection and tracking technology using artificial intelligence (AI) which can distinguish an individual in real-time using features from over 100 categories of external characteristics such as sex, color of clothing or carried items, and immediately detect and track the person sought after individual. Using this technology, it will be possible to detect a suspicious individual or a lost child using information from eye-witness accounts to detect a person fitting that description from public security cameras set up in large facilities or city areas.

Hitachi will apply this technology to wide-area security and surveillance systems such as those in public areas, contribute to public safety and security.
