Users can draw multiple zones on any feed. The system keeps track of any person or object that enters a zone. These zones track not only entry and exit, but also length of time spent in the zone. This enables a new set of temporal analytics. Lots of useful data can be derived from measuring how long people and cars stay in a particular zone. How long is the average car parked in this parking lot? What is the average amount of time a given car is stopped at this traffic light? Which store aisles do customers stand in the longest? Are there store aisles that women stand in on average longer than men? What is the average waiting room time in an ER? BASS calculates the average amount of time spent in each zone, and users can set specific zones to send an alert if a person or car is in them for over a specified amount of time. This allows BASS to enforce business’s parking lot rules and loitering rules.
Loitering is a nuisance to businesses, but not an issue business owners generally want to spend employee hours preventing. With BASS, users can draw loitering zones and set an amount of time. The zone will set off an alert if a person is standing in the zone for longer than the set amount of time. For parking lots, BASS enforces both reserved parking and timed parking. Timed parking, such as 2-hour parking spots, is enforced the same way as loitering rules. Reserved parking is enforced using license plate recognition. The system can be set to give an alert if any car other than the car with the right license plate parks in the reserved spot.
Users can draw zones in protected areas, such as C Suite offices. These restricted zones set off an alert if anyone enters the zone, other than specific people given clearance in their profiles. An entire camera feed can also be set as a restricted zone. Users can add people allowed inside the restricted zone using state management, or they can set a clearance level for the restricted zone, and set all relevant profiles to that clearance level. Restricted zones are also useful in manufacturing settings, where the occupation of certain areas could be dangerous. Restricted zones can be combined with attribute detection using state management to enforce the usage of personal protective equipment, such as hardhats and safety vests, inside certain zones. This is immensely useful in factory and construction settings.
