software analytical for oil rig offshore implementation

I do know that pelco's camera has a capability to be integrated with software analytics, such as abandoned object, adaptive motion detection etc.

What im asking for is : for implementation at offshore (oil rig), does adaptive motion detection can differentiate a movement between a boat that enter a scene with the wave ?

if i'm planning to place at the beach, maybe i could place the camera far away from the shore which will minimize sight of wave.

But, to be placed offshore is it possible to use the same software analytical ?

Re: software analytical for oil rig offshore implementation


I see you sent an email to product support as well as put this same question here on the Community Website. While we have buildings business products and services that are designed to accommodate a building, an off shore oil rig and platform offers a challenge for you. While Pelco does have IP cameras which have Analytics and motion detection, differentiating between a person, a boat, or a wave is not really the engineering behind the products we offer. There is also motion detection but again, this would trigger the camera/DVR to start recording and there is no ability to distinguish between objects such as waves or boats in the field of site. The last thought is Thermal Image control which could see warm objects and trigger a camera but a warm motor on a boat would also be picked up.

Re: software analytical for oil rig offshore implementation

Hi Mario,

It would be quite challenging environment, however, it might be worthwhile trial to have a real shootout at the site.

Adaptive motion is supposed to track moving objects in a scene and trigger an alarm if a moving object enters a designated area - this is one big difference between simple motion detection and adaptive motion detection. Ideally, with proper scene calibration, constant-moving waves could be ignored and only moving boats would trigger the alarm.

Why don't you contact local Pelco dealer to request a shootout for feasibility test?

As alway, video analytics features should be one of supplementaries to enhance overall performance.
