Presented at the 2013 Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration Annual Meeting (SME 2013). Mining operations require a wider approach for surveillance systems to meet needs ranging from process monitoring to people and assets protection. Intelligent video analytics can identify specific conditions and notify operators of potential issues, allowing mining operations to make quick, informed decisions.

  • Today’s security picture is changing rapidly. Risks are increasing. New threats are emerging. Protecting assets – customers, employees, property and data – is still at the core of a business’s security strategy. But business leaders must also reduce risk, mitigate liability, protect revenue streams, and reduce operating costs and insurance premiums. Additionally, they are expected to align or comply with evolving international, federal and local security regulations and standards. For businesses within our target market space, the threats are too complex and wide spread to be addressed by manual or standalone methods. Threats to people, property and data need to be assessed quickly, with clear, real-time data, providing security personnel with actionable information to mitigate threats. Security operations benefit greatly from systems that can communicate with each other. This enables rapid and intelligent alarm response making it possible to disable threats to business operations as early as possible. This is a key step in creating the safest possible environment for business.
  • There are millions of security cameras in place across the world, with more millions coming on-line every year. Here’s a secret from the video security industry – 95% of video is never watched. Either live or ever. Most of the time nothing untoward happens. But when it does you want to get to it very quickly. Active surveillance is expensive. So it is directed at high value or high security locations. Even then, you often have an operator looking at 16 or more cameras on a video wall looking for suspicious activity. It is easy to miss something when it first happens. What analytics can do is help quickly direct attention to right segments of video from the right cameras, either in real time or forensically. The use of analytics are also moving beyond security applications to improving effectiveness of business or process operation.
  • Through constant automated digital screening and filtering,video analystics can identify specific conditions Notification of mine operators enables production teams to make quick, informed decisions Storing and retrieving data from memory is very easy for computers, but difficult for the mine personnel. What video Analytics do very efficiently, is identify objects by type, and track their movement in a scene. You can configure analytics to alert you in a range of different circumstances. Analytics are available at the edge – where processing is in th camera at time of capture or at the head end where they can be integrated across a group of cameras and forensic analysis can be done.
  • Analytics have improved greatly in reliability over the years. Techniques like adaptive motion look for movement of objects by size – eg a human, or vehicle and filter out effects of things like leaves moving in the wind or snow. Detects and tracks objects that enter a scene and then triggers an alarm when the objects enter a user-defined zone. This behavior is primarily used in outdoor environments with lighttraffic to reduce the number of false alarms caused by environmental changes
  • In essence, what you can do is watch for people or vehicles going to places they shouldn’t. You can set up the analytics behavior to raise an alarm when a person crosses a line or when a vehicle enters a zone. And you can specify the direction. So you can catch things happening against the normal flow of traffic. Generates an alarm in a high traffic area when a person or object moves in a specified direction. Typical installations for this behavior include an airport gate or tunnel where cameras can detect objects moving in the opposite direction of the normal flow of traffic or an individual entering through an exit door.
  • This is used to track high value or sensitive objects and alarm when they are removed.
  • This behavior is used both for security as well as for improving operational effectiveness. You can count people or vehicles arriving or leaving a scene as well.
  • This is a basic analytics in video security cameras today. Guards against vandalism. If someone moves the camera, throws a cloth over it, spray paints it. The camera detects it and sends an alarm.
  • This behavior is looking for objects left behind in places there shouldn’t be anything. You could, for example look for objects that are unattended longer than a certain period of time.
  • This behavior looks for people or vehicles hanging around longer than you’d like in a sensitive area.
  • Here you are concerned about vehicles either stalled or deliberately left unattended for longer than you’d like.
  • When configured, the camera automatically pans and tilts to follow the moving object until the object stops or disappears from the monitored area. Detects and tracks movement in the camera’s field of view. When the AutoTracker behavior is configured, the system automatically pans and tilts to follow the moving object until the object stops or disappears from the monitored area.
  • Used to detect whether a person or vehicle is in an area.
  • A mining operation can have over a thousand cameras. Managing the configuration and use of these cameras by authorized personnel is the key function of video management systems. They also need to organize, store and manage all petabytes of video data that flow from these cameras. Again for privacy and security reasons, access to all this info needs to be controlled. But an authorized person, needs to be able to find cameras and recorded video quickly and easily.
  • Tablet optimization should be with 2 x 2 and 3 x 3 views An ideal system should enable a user to view up to 500 cameras Search My Systems list for fast location of cameras Save favorite cameras and sites for easy navigation
