Video analytics you can depend on

Motion Heatmaps

Summarize overall motion trends for selected time periods. The motion heatmap is ideal for understanding the traffic patterns in stores, parking lots, or sidewalks and streets.

Dwell Heatmaps

Highlight waiting times, and show at a glance where people and vehicles are likely to congregate, such as areas people stop and linger or vehicles idle.

Person motion vs dwell heatmap from intuVision VA.

The heatmaps below summarize people and vehicle activity patterns from a parking lot over an 8 hour work day.

Person motion heatmap with intuVision VA in a parkinglot

Motion - Person - 8 Hours

This heatmap shows only person motion. For example, it is evident that people walking from their cars into the building are most likely to walk inside the driveway, with very few taking the safer path along the building. Adding designated walkways would help with this unsafe behavior. Also visible is the common lunch-hour walking path around the outside of the parking lot.

Dwell - Person - 8 Hours

This heatmap shows only person dwell instances for the 8 hours of the test.

Longest person dwell times are beside their vehicles as they go in and out. Parking spots with higher turnover have larger areas of red as more people get in and out of their vehicles. One area of surprise is the large yellow region in the driveway closest to the camera. Looking at archived video of this day indicates that this was caused by a group of people gathering during the lunch hour.

Vehicle motion heatmap with intuVision VA in a parkinglot

Motion - Vehicle - 8 Hours

This heatmap shows only vehicle motion paths over the course of the work day.

People try to park closer to the building, and so vehicles are most likely to travel along paths closer to the building and the main roadway (both are red). Parking spots with high turnover are marked by light and dark blue, as vehicles move in and out of those spaces during the day.
