Roorkee: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) have collaborated to introduce a Security Surveillance System, a system of various cameras/videos fitted in a building to record movement of a person on the map along with time. The system is on display at the Def Expo 2020.

Prof Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director IIT Roorkee said IIT was delighted to collaborate with BEL to introduce the Security Surveillance System.

Prof Kamal Jain, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Roorkee said, “The value of our recent research has enabled our experts to demonstrate their in-depth understanding of the efficient security surveillance infrastructure. The collaboration with BEL will streamline the operations, improving business efficiency and cutting costs.”

The applications of Security Surveillance System include location tracking, security purposes, military intelligence (Border-Patrol), suspicious activity detection, use of office administration, navigation in case of satellite images/videos, human intelligence gathering, public and private(prevention of crime, violation of privacy, protection of a process etc, wireless security tracking.

How the system works: Through IP camera we are able to collect coordinates of a person on the images/videos and sent it to the database.

The coordinates of a person assist security system to identify human abnormal behaviour and acknowledge that it is a red zone movement alert. Also whenever that suspicious person moves in the premises, it tracks the movement.

The coordinates of a person are identified by the IP camera through a face ID methodology. This surveillance system will be a golden hand to the high alert security area such as in defence services, high security to the specific power authorities in private and public domain, airports etc.
