Students from IIT, Delhi have devised a surveillance system which could be a huge hit with the Delhi Police and also intelligence agencies. The device could just be the perfect gift for them.
The surveillance system which will be displayed in ‘Open House’ is portable and can be customised for any scenario with minimal modifications like shopping malls, airports, railway stations, parking lots and metro stations.
The system has been developed by fourth year students of Computer Science and Engineering, Nitin Jindal and Shubham Singhal.
“We have developed a fully automated surveillance system that generates intelligent object information from surveillance videos in real time,” Prof Prem Kalra and Prof S Bannerjee, who supervised the project, informed.
“This information can be used for activity recognition in both supervised and unsupervised manner. The system is divided into three layers.”
Students have also developed an ultra violet protection umbrella which provides screening from harmful solar radiations.
It has a high value of ultra violet protection factor and prevents problems like premature ageing, cataract and skin cancer.
