Nowadays, video analytics can anticipate further developments. This possibility is due to the progress of IP cameras, which are becoming more intelligent. As a result, with the help of modern video analytics, it is possible to make security systems capable of predicting the further development of events.
Instead of recording for further investigation of what happened, the new cameras are able to prevent possible incidents, and for this, they can timely notify security personnel about the development of any alarming situation.
However, predictive video analytics is not limited to intelligent image processing. It is important to integrate the results of video analysis with data from other subsystems - alarm protection, access control, time tracking, etc. A comparison of these data gives the result necessary to predict the development of the situation.
Another type of analytics is behavior analysis. Here an important role is played by samples of previously known sequences of events. When a combination of real-time events fits into a similar, potentially dangerous event, an alarm that has predictive meaning follows.
