Axxon Behavior Analytics And Facial Recognition Tested
By Rob Kilpatrick, Published May 26, 2021, 11:10am EDT
Axxon's Behavior Analytics claim to "Recognize potentially dangerous situations by detecting specific human postures" and their facial recognition is "free of recognition issues which were typical" in past generations. But how do they work in the real world?
We tested Behavior Analytics and facial recognition for 2+ weeks, examining these issues:
How well do behavior analytics detect postures such as raised hands, sitting, or falling?
Do they accurately detect social distancing violations?
How do camera angles impact behavior detection?
How does it perform in real-world surveillance scenarios?
Does facial recognition falsely identify a person as a different person?
Does it miss faces walking through the scene?
Can it still recognize the faces of people wearing sunglasses, hats, and masks?
How does it perform at night in low light (~2 lux) or dark/IR (~0.02 lux)?
