What pricing range would be useful for PIDS world. I am CEO of a startup, Oyla, building a ~50m range 3D fusion camera (+analytics), but very near the cost of enterprise outdoor surveillance cameras. It’s more of a bullet camera product that works in the surveillance ecosystem. It’s not meant to be a comprehensive capture device like Leica’s, but more focused on specific applications. For example, we’re building a more accurate solution for outdoor people counting and detection, but I am curious if there is a market in PID applications not adequately served by existing camera technology that would also be a fit.
Interesting. Would be interesting to see something like Thermal Imaging Radar's IR coupled with Lieca's 360° Lidar. As a note, Velodyne has the Velabit ($100 US) in production now for a standard (non 360) view if someone was bold enough to grab their API and run with it.
I get the package Michael, at issue is the price point. It's not like we are talking Lieca glass optics for visual light imagers. It's the marriage of Visual Light, Lidar and Thermal imaging into a single IP address for 13K MSRP with limited range that kills me on the concept.
Yes, this is not the tool for long-range applications but this can be very useful for some applications. Pricing never scares me so that is not an issue. I just need to get my hands on one to show a client who would need about 30 of them.
I am most interested in seeing how AI will be used with multiple sensors (color, thermal, and Lidar) on the camera though I am not sure if this camera does that. I think this next step to make AI more accurate for detecting objects.
A color camera detects a person, thermal checks to see if it has the temp of a human, and lidar checks the size of the human. Something like this.
For this camera, I have a client who is concerned about someone entering the property and not leaving. Having the thermal sensor and Lidar could help detect someone hiding where the color camera might miss them. Also, the Lidar will help show exactly where the person is located on the property.
NEW YORK, USA. Luxriot and Leica Geosystems announced today the integration of Luxriot® Evo video and data management platform with the BLK247, the revolutionary real-time reality capture sensor by Leica Geosystems. The integration will give users access to advanced sensor fusion technology—a combination of edge computing, imagery, and LiDAR—to detect and report physical changes within a space integrated through the Luxriot® Evo client user interface.
Users of the integrated system will benefit from the extensive video and data processing capabilities of Luxriot® Evo and will be able to manage dual camera live streams, real-time video dewarp of panorama or arbitrary zones, and edge-based analytic events of the Leica Geosystems BLK247.
