SAIMOS® is the leading vendor of Intel CPU/VPU based Video Analytics seamlessly integrated into Milestone XProtect®. We do provide enhanced Situational Awareness by combining Video Analytics with Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

SAIMOS® was one of the first vendors integrating Intel’s OpenVINO into its commercial products to enhance its video analytics architecture and allow the optimized usage of CPU’s and VPU’s combined with traditional computer vision approaches.

Collected metadata from video analytics can be displayed on a GIS map for better situational awareness and including geo-spatial analytics for evaluation and planning purposes. Based on GIS, real-time data can be considered as well and put into relation with metadata from video analytics, which provides a new level of business intelligence. Location-based real-time data can be coming e.g. from LiDAR, radar, weather data (also forecasts), etc. This approach enables the combination and advantages of Milestone System’s VMS, Video Analytics as well as geo-spatial analytics for enhanced business processes. 

SAIMOS modules are scalable and easy to use, applicable in multiple industries, as Security, Critical Infrastructure (Oil & Gas, Power Plants, Distribution Lines, etc.), Transportation (Bus, Metro, Station, Platform, Airport), Retail, Banking, Campus (Educational Facilities, Municipalities), Smart Buildings, Smart / Safe City and many more.
