What is LiDAR?
LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a technology that uses laser pulses to create high-resolution maps and detect objects. In recent years, LiDAR has emerged as a crucial technology in various industries, including security. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of using LiDAR for security and intrusion detection, and how AMORPH.senses, a complete 3D perception solution that processes data from LiDAR sensors, can provide real-time identification and tracking of people and objects.
Importance of LiDAR in Security
One of the key advantages of using LiDAR for security is its ability to detect intruders or objects more reliably than other technologies, thanks to accurate distance and size detection. It works by emitting hundreds of thousands of invisible laser pulses per second from 3D LiDAR sensors that are scattered across a wide field of view. If a laser pulse hits an object or a person, the emitted light is reflected and detected again in the sensor. The position of the object or person is precisely determined from the time that the light takes to arrive back at the sensor (time-of-flight). Since not just one, but countless rays of light are reflected from an object or a person, the system detects the object size and triggers an alarm only if the defined minimum size is reached or exceeded.
Flexibly Definable Security Zones
The wide field of view of 3D LiDAR sensors enables users to define their safety zones very flexibly according to their individual needs. For example, they can connect several 3D LiDAR sensors in series along fences to protect fences of practically any length from being breached. By strategically placing sensors to cover the area surrounding a fence, a large warning zone can be set up in which every intrusion is registered.
AMORPH.senses is a complete 3D perception solution that ingests and processes data from LiDAR sensors, identifies and classifies people and objects, tracks their position and movement, and analyzes that data to provide detailed status and performance intelligence to support operational decision-making. With AMORPH.senses, you will get measurements with millimeter precision and in compliance with data protection regulations. It is possible to identify and track people and objects in real time. AMORPH.senses is an excellent solution for detecting hazards and intruders in high-security areas.
Benefits of using AMORPH.senses
AMORPH.senses can definitely help in airport security zones or airplane parking areas by providing real-time monitoring and analysis of the environment using LiDAR sensors. Here are some potential scenarios where the solution could be useful:
Unauthorized access detection: AMORPH.senses can detect when someone enters a restricted area, such as an airplane parking area, and trigger an alert to security personnel. This can help prevent unauthorized access and enhance overall security.
Object detection and tracking: AMORPH.senses can also track the movement of objects, such as luggage or vehicles, in real-time. This can help identify any suspicious activity or potential security threats, such as unattended bags or vehicles moving in restricted areas.
People tracking: In addition to object tracking, AMORPH.senses can also track the movement of people in real-time. This can help airport security personnel to identify any potential security threats, such as a person moving into a restricted area or an individual who has been in a certain area for an extended period of time.
Crowd management: AMORPH.senses can help monitor the movement of people in crowded areas, such as airport terminals, and help to identify potential overcrowding or congestion. This can help airport staff to manage crowds more effectively and reduce the risk of accidents or incidents.
In conclusion, the benefits of AMORPH.senses are numerous, and their potential applications are vast. From improving public safety and security to enhancing operational efficiency and productivity, this 3D perception solution has the power to transform various industries.
