OmniPerception’s real-time facial surveillance solution demonstrated at B-APCO 2012 by Vauxhall Special Vehicles
OmniPerception’s CheckPoint.S’ real-time facial surveillance solution has been selected as part of the one box concept for 2015, that could form part of a range of high-tech kit to help police officers fight crime in the future.
CheckPoint.S will be installed as a facial recognition sensor into the Vauxhall Ampera and could be linked to a Police National Database. The Vauxhall Ampera demonstrated at B-APCO 2012 is equipped with the latest crime preventing technology and could be introduced into active Police service by 2015.
Using face recognition, CheckPoint.S identifies potential wanted or missing people and alerts police officers in real time when a subject is in the area. CheckPoint.S can identify people even when the subject is not directly looking into the sensor.
CheckPoint.S is a light-immune solution, designed to work in any lighting conditions, can be used either covertly or overtly and it is scalable from one to hundreds of sensors.
Stewart Hefferman, CEO of OmniPerception, said: “We are delighted to have been selected as one of the cutting-edge technologies that are seen as the future in crime preventing and policing. OmniPerception looks forward to working closely with Vauxhall Special Vehicles and to seeing CheckPoint.S in active service in the future.”
Chief Superintendent Hammond, ACPO ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) said, “This technology has the potential to mirror ANPR functionality but for people. Whilst there are challenges to overcome for it to operate successfully in the police vehicle environment, the potential gains makes this development an exciting prospect.”
