I’m working on a Genetec installation where the customer requires alarming/notification when vessels (sailboats, tour boats, kayakers, etc) enter a private cove off of an inlet. An Axis Q1932-E (35mm) thermal camera has been installed at the cove entrance aimed across the water. The distance is approx. 360ft from shoreline to shoreline and depending on the tide the camera is 18-25ft above the water. Depending on the weather, the Axis on-board crossline detection does not perform well with the waves in the field of view and we are looking for an alternate solution.
With the motion from the water in the field of view being the challenge here, does anyone have any experience with a similar application implementing analytics for crossline or object detection over water? Is there an analytics suite that worked well? Or equally as helpful, what didn’t work? Any suggestions and feedback would be appreciated.
