Total Feluy – Perimeter protection

 

Securing the perimeter of the largest polymer production site in Europe.

Total’s oil refinery located in Feluy, Belgium is Total’s largest polymer production site in Europe, as well as the largest petroleum fuel depot in Belgium. In addition to production, there is a research and technology center specializing in catalysis, processes, analysis, polymers and biotechnology. This site is a major player for the economy of the region but also for Total Belgium.

Mission

Total wanted to integrate a perimeter protection solution at its Feluy site in order to avoid intrusions. There were a total of 28 Axis Q1942 thermal cameras already installed to be fitted with a solution adapted to their needs. To do this, they called on an integrator: ENGIE. ENGIE, knowing our solutions well and trusting us, then consulted us in order to make the project in partnership.

An on-site visit with ENGIE to study the feasibility and assess the location of the cameras was necessary. Once the camera locations were validated, we started the project.

The mission we were given was to detect the presence of people, day or night and under any conditions that approached and smuggled across the perimeter of the site. In case a person crossed the previously determined lines, an alarm had to be raised in the VMS Genetec Security Center.

Solution

To meet this demand, we proposed our Activity Detection Edge version solution which allows many uses. This solution, which is integrated directly into the camera, allows the detection of people in an area, when crossing one or more lines, the detection of abandoned objects, etc. This solution, fully customizable, both in terms of the subject and the needs to detect that in terms of detection rules. It is perfectly compatible with Axis thermal imaging cameras and meets all needs.

We then integrated ACIC into Genetec Security Center in order to be able to report alarms in real time to the VMS and at a centralized point.

Résultats

As an integrator and a certified partner, ENGIE, was responsible for commissioning the analysis licenses on the various cameras. However, on-site support was required during the first day of commissioning to assist Engie during the configurations.

Today, the production site can detect intrusions and the crossing of the fence day and night and in all conditions. The protection of the site and the employees is therefore fully ensured.

ACIC SOLUTION : Dynamic versions of ACIC’s solutions

Customize your licenses according to your needs with the Dynamic versions of ACIC solutions

Historically, ACIC video analytics solutions have always proven to be as complete as possible, with many features to be found. However, this complexity has its downside: “frozen” products that are sometimes too complex for a specific project, leading in particular to a higher cost of licenses.

That is why we have recently decided to market so-called “Dynamic” versions of the licenses. These Dynamic versions are lightweight license packages that include a defined number of features chosen by the customer. When choosing a “Dynamic” package, the customer has as a base package a limited number of functionalities that he can implement according to the needs of his project.

This basic package will therefore allow you to more precisely control the budget of your project via a more accessible and customizable offer, the Basic License package having a reduced price compared to the full License package.

These new “Dynamic” versions therefore allow you to customize your licenses according to your needs and thus reduce the unit cost. It is also possible to subsequently buy additional functionalities according to the evolution of your project, in order to supplement the licenses already installed on a site.

  • Your project does not require all the features included in the full licenses?
  • Would you like some specific options without additional features?
  • Do you want solutions that can evolve with your project?
  • Do you want to control your budget and reduce the unit cost of your licenses?

In this case our “Dynamic” version is the perfect solution. Contact us to have a quote and assistance in setting up your project!

Antwerp Tunnels

Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium. It is located in the Flemish region near the Dutch border. The city has more than 1.3 million inhabitants and is one of the economic lungs of Belgium. Indeed, the city has the port of Antwerp which is a major hub of world trade with Europe. It is the second most important port in Europe and the 15th largest port in the world.

Mission

The city of Antwerp needed an efficient solution to manage the traffic in the city’s tunnels. The integrator Hacousto Protect contacted us and we offered our Traffic Monitoring solution.  Our mission  was to count and classify the vehicles and the traffic. The solution also had to be able to detect incidents, traffic jams, accidents, wrong way, … The automation was crucial for the tunnels’s safety.

Solution

For this project, we deployed several analysis servers on site to collect information in real time. There were a total of 22 cameras with our Traffic Monitoring solution. We have therefore deployed 22 licenses with the following features: vehicle counting, speed calculation, vehicle classification, traffic classification, slowdown and traffic jam detection, vehicle stopped, speeding, …

Result

The integration of statistical data has allowed the city of Antwerp to have a better view of the traffic inside the tunnels, which allows better traffic management. The detection system having been improved, this also increases road safety in the city. Instant detection of road incidents enables faster communication between different emergency or traffic management services

Crowd Numbering solution, frequentation of station platforms – SNCF

Line B and line C are two major lines of the Paris Regional Express Railway (RER). Line B, which carries an average of 165 million passengers each year, joins the northeast to the southwest via the center. It is the second busiest line on the network with its 80 kilometers and 47 stations. Line C is more than 100 kilometers long and has twice as many stops. It joins the northwest to the southwest through the center. In total, these two lines represent more than 260 km of track, 131 stations and transport more than 300 million passengers every year.

 

Mission 

 

In 2018, the SNCF launched a tender for lines B and C of the Paris RER. They want to know in real time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the number of people present on its station platforms and in its stations. The goal is to have a global overview of network occupan-cy rate. This allows the SNCF to charter additional trains or to detect the over-load of a platform for example. For this, the SNCF already has a large came-ra network that has a view over the platforms. More than 750 cameras are available for carrying out the project. The mission is therefore to offer an ef-fective solution that stands out from the competition and at a competitive price.

 

 

Solution 

 

Among its products, ACIC has a solution to count people in a zone. This solution, called CrowdNum-bering, has been proposed to SNCF. In concrete terms, this product makes it possible to determine a virtual zone and to instantly count the number of people present in this zone. The counting frequency can be customized (every minute, every 10 seconds, …). With the right settings, the error rate is rela-tively low and can be below 10%. The video analytics which allows the counting is based on artificial intelligence models (deep neural networks). They have been trained to detect the appearance of a person or a head, regardless of their pose or orientation. This product runs on an analytics server and requires a GPU.

 

Results

 

In competition with other companies including IBM, ACIC and its CrowdNumbering solution were chosen by SNCF. We therefore equipped more than 786 cameras in the 57 stations of the two lines with CrowdNumbering® licenses. Currently, the 786 video streams are processed by four analytics servers, each equipped with a GPU. In addition to CrowdNumbering®, each camera has been equipped with an option called «Full Anomaly Detection». This option allows the operator to be notified in case of camera displacement, blur, camera occlusion, loss of signal and under or over exposure.
The data collected is processed internally at SNCF by the TCO Voyageur platform.
