Hello everyone!! How are you all?? Today we are going to talk about –”Czech Scientists Give ‘Brains’ to Drone System to Detect Abnormal Behaviour”

 

Developed to assist the Czech police in crowd management and policing, the system uses neural networks to decode data.

The drone technology was tested by observing players on a football pitch.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Brno University of Technology and thus the Czech police on the event
  • New technology allows drones to decide if a situation requires attention
  • The Czech police plan to start their own tests

Law enforcement agencies across the planet are leveraging technology to equip themselves to prevent crimes or improve their reaction time .

Most of them are deploying drones to watch large groups of individuals or an outsized area of interest with limited manpower.

Though very useful, this technology is restricted in one aspect: the power to decide on what’s normal and what’s not.

They can only relay the footage to their handler who would decide what action is to be taken.

So, a gaggle of Czech scientists decided to offer these machines the power to work out suspicious behaviour.

They claim to possess developed a closed-circuit television that analyses drone footage in a way almost like the human brain.

 

Developed as a joint research programme between the Brno University of Technology and thus the Police of the Czech Republic, this new system uses neural networks to decode data.

In addition to surveillance and control, it can also be used for traffic management, the scientists said.

David Bažout, a fresh graduate from the university’s Information Technology faculty, described how the system he and his colleagues have developed works.
He told Radio Prague International that the drone footage is split into smaller “cells.”
The system then analyses and establishes a general picture of what is happening.
It then develops a model of ordinary behaviour within the given environment then compares the anomalies, if any, to report back to the observer.

The big advantage of this technique is it learns and executes the programme in real-time, removing the likelihood of a loss of crucial time in developing a police response.
During the tests, scientists asked the system to watch football players on a pitch.
Some of them were then suddenly told to lie on rock bottom. The system immediately alerted the observer about the anomaly, consistent with the report.
But there might be numerous aberrations during a crowd as most are expected to behave differently. So Bažout and his team have given the system observer the choice to line the sensitivity level.

The Czech police will now reportedly start their own tests to ascertain the efficiency of this technique, with the hope that it’ll allow its officers to succeed in a scene much faster
