Build the Future of Intelligent Spaces

Due to its large coverage HemiStereo® allows precise analytics even in wide rooms with many occluding objects.

Designed to Fit the Human Environment

Use Case Retail Intelligence

From Counting to Cashier-less Stores

Major traditional retail brands look for new ways to compete with the growing e-commerce competitors. Brick-and-mortar stores don’t have precise insight into their customers buying behavior. Intelligent features like detailed customer analytics or even convenience technologies like cashier-less checkout are being implemented by next-gen stores.

Real-world retail environments are large and complex spaces. Due to its large coverage HemiStereo® allows precise analytics even in wide rooms with many occluding objects.

Use Case Home Safety

Building Situation Aware Homes

Due to recent demographic changes many societies are facing major challenges in their elderly care systems. With more people living alone, the risk of household accidents and health-related emergencies are rising. However, AI-enabled future smart homes could mitigate risks by calling for help in case of emergency.

With HemiStereo® homes could become intelligent enough to detect and understand even complex emergency situations.

Use Case Public Security

Privacy-Aware Automated Security

Millions of CCTV cameras observe public spaces around the globe. However, these cameras are only used for deterrence and forensic purposes but cannot react to threats. AI-powered security systems on the other hand could automatedly react to dangerous situations, very likely even prevent damages.

At the same time the privacy of people in the observed area must be protected. Critical data such as images, which allow personal identification, should not be sent to any remote location in the internet. Therefore, HemiStereo® integrates powerful AI computing onto the device and allows all sensitive data to be processed locally with no need for cloud-based computing.

Wide Area Coverage

Due to its hemispherical field of view HemiStereo® allows large area coverage even with low ceiling heights of 2-4 meters. With a single sensor a square ground plane of around 10m x 10m can be covered. For smaller indoor spaces such as private homes one sensor would be sufficient for one complete room. For larger spaces such as retail environments the sensing area can easily be extended by adding more sensors in a grid pattern.

Artificial Intelligence on the Edge

NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Inside

Full Power at the Edge

Our HemiStereo® devices integrate AI supercomputer NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 in order to allow real-time GPU-based inference using deep neural networks.

More Scalable, More Secure

In many use-cases of AI privacy of people must be protected. Therefore, HemiStereo® integrates powerful AI computing into the device and allows all sensitive data to be processed locally with no need for cloud-based processing. Furthermore edge-based processing improves scalability especially in bandwidth-limited applications.

Success Stories

Fall Detection for Elderly Care

HemiStereo® enables new intelligent devices which accurately detect critical situations in the living space – like immobility, inactivity, or falls. In cases of emergency nursing staff or family members can automatically be notified.

People Detection

Crowd Analytics in Public Spaces

The ultra-wide field of view provided by HemiStereo® allows precise people tracking even in complex environment. Automatic crowd analytics, e.g. on trade floors helps optimize presentation layout or floor planning.

Shopping Cart Tracking

Retail Shopping Cart Tracking

With the growing numbers of self-checkout areas theft prevention becomes more important. A HemiStereo® powered shopping tracker allows detection of shopping carts with cart content estimation even in very wide entrance areas.
