Stage of Development: Prototype Level
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
The development of the product based on the prototype is in progress


Applications: Video contains a lot of information and knowledge. Surveillance cameras generate huge volume of video. It is absolutely not possible to manually view all these videos. With the advancement in processing hardware and deep learning, we now have the ability to automatically analyse the visual data to obtain valuable insight about what is happening. The potential applications of the developed technologies are (a) Attribute/Soft biometric based search (b) Image retrieval in surveillance videos (c) People tracking (d) Anamoly detection
Advantages: At public places like bus terminus or railway stations, the stored video is mostly analysed for locating missing people, tracking person, bag theft and also for crime detection. To search a missing person or bag in video based on an eyewitness account or description is extremely time consuming and difficult, since the operator has to watch the recorded video for that complete duration. Also it is difficult for operator to track that particular person over multiple cameras to know where the person has gone. The prototype developed with state-of-the-art object detection and tracking method is used to enhance missing person identification problem. The features of the prototype are as follows: i) Faster method to search and analyze surveillance footage using AI ii) Search results in recorded videos with low latency iii) Color based people search iv) Web based search interface

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
