REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) • Video analytics
The Illinois Institute of Technology has received a research grant from the Chicago Police Department (CPD) as part of a project sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, a research branch of the U.S. Department of Justice. The title of this project is “Optimizing the Use of Video Technology to Improve Criminal Justice Outcomes”. As part of this project, the Illinois Institute of Technology will be conducting a performance evaluation of various existing video analytics technologies that can be deployed on both fixed and random scanning video surveillance systems. The project will leverage Chicago's vast video surveillance network (the largest such integration platform in the U.S.), the extensive experience of the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and the Office of Emergency Management & Communications (OEMC) in the use of this technology, and a unique partnership between CPD and an academic engineering team at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), near CPD Headquarters. The purpose of this RFI is to invite all interested vendors of such technologies to take part in this evaluation process. The Illinois Institute of Technology will report the results in peer-reviewed publications, and to the Chicago Police Department and the National Institute of Justice.
Any submitted analytics software/tools should be: (a) compatible with Genetec video system and software, (b) capable of analyzing both low- and high-resolution video and images, (c) Able to analyze video from both high bandwidth 30 frames per second HD feeds as well as cellular backhauled images at 5-10 frames per second, (d) able to analyze video from low-light nighttime conditions as well as in various weather conditions such as rain or snow, (e) generate alerts in situations observed in a video stream including, but not limited to, detection of suspicious events, objects left behind, area intrusion, crowd gathering, direction deviation and/or post event evaluation including vehicle and color recognition, symbol recognition, etc. The performance of the video analytics software will be evaluated by assessing the accuracy of its generated alerts on a set of video streams obtained from the CPD camera network.
