The Heat Map analytics setup process consists of 2 Steps.
Step 1 - General

HM3.png

First of all, it is necessary to select a video stream. Click on the Video field and select the camera name from a list.

When the video stream is selected press the Set Video Stream button.
By pressing the Update Video Frame button you can see a frame in real-time in the field of frame addition. To add analytics it is necessary to set up the following parameter:

Field name Input values
Time Frame Select the time period for which the system will make a traffic fixation

Then it is necessary to place a traffic fixation area.
Move the white and red markers to line up the desired area.

HM7.png

The analytics will be performed only within the boundaries of the selected area.
In order to remove the area, click on the Delete Rule button.

HM8.png

To create a new area from the beginning, click somewhere inside the frame. Then move the mouse cursor. It will be moved with a red line. Put as many points as is necessary to create the borders of the desired area. The last point should be placed at the same place as the first one.

Step 2 - Hardware

HM11.png

Now it is time to customize Hardware options. System users can change the following parameters:

Parameter Description
Hardware Select one of the technologies - CPU or GPU acceleration
Decoding Select the hardware decoder from the drop-down list - CPU, Intel, Nvidia
Optimization Select the optimization parameter from the drop-down list (for CPU - CPU (no optimization), Open VINO; for GPU - CUDA (no optimization), cuDNN Half (FP16), Tensor RT)
FPS Enter the desired number of frames per second in the field for detection. The recommended value is 25

When the analytics setup is complete, click on the Save button in the upper right corner of the page to save changes and create the analytics.

Analytics Editing
To open the Heat Map analytics editing window, click the Edit button on the right side of the analytics record.

HM13.png

It is possible to edit the analytics if it is not running.
If the analytics is Active at the moment, it is necessary to disable it by clicking on the Stop Analytics button in the upper right corner of the editor page.

Genetal Tab
At the General tab it is possible to edit the following parameter:

Field name Input values
Time Frame Select the time period for which the system will make a traffic fixation

Then it is possible to edit a traffic fixation area.
Move the white and red markers to line up the desired area.

HM17.png

The analytics will be performed only within the boundaries of the selected area.
In order to remove the area, click on the Delete Rule button.

HM18.png

To create a new area from the beginning, click somewhere inside the frame. Then move the mouse cursor. It will be moved with a red line. Put as many points as is necessary to create the borders of the desired area.

The last point should be placed at the same place as the first one.
Hardware Tab
At the Hardware tab it is possible to edit the following parameters:

Parameter Description
Hardware Select one of the technologies - CPU or GPU acceleration
Decoding Select the hardware decoder from the drop-down list - CPU, Intel, Nvidia
Optimization Select the optimization parameter from the drop-down list (for CPU - CPU (no optimization), Open VINO; for GPU - CUDA (no optimization), cuDNN Half (FP16), Tensor RT)

HM27.png

Statistics Filters
To filter statistics it is necessary to set up statistics filters:

HM28.png

The first filter allows defining the statistics for a Day, Week, Month, or desired Time Frame.
In the second field, it is necessary to select a day for which it is necessary to receive the frames. In case the first field Day is selected, frames by hours of this day will be shown. In case Week is selected, a calendar week will be shown, which includes the selected day. In case the Month is selected, the calendar month including the selected day will be shown.
In a third field, it is necessary to select the camera. Frames from the selected camera will be shown.
Day
If Day is selected, frames that are made for a certain day by hours will be shown.

HM29.png

Week
If Week is selected, frames that are made for a certain week by days will be shown.

HM30.png

To view a certain frame in Day filter (by hours) click on the Pic.png icon over a frame.
Month
If Month is selected, frames made for a certain month by days will be shown.

HM31.png

To view a certain frame in Day filter (by hours) click on the Pic.png icon over a frame.
Time Frame
When selecting Time Frame, one frame for a certain period will be shown. For period determination it is necessary to designate the period for which the traffic density analysis will be made for the chosen camera in the second field.

HM32.png

For filtration by camera, time period, and frame time it is necessary to press the Report button.

Camera Compatibility

The solution is compatible with all cameras, that return the RTSP stream.

Camera Installation Requirements

• Static background
• The camera should be well fixed and not shaking
• Avoid refocusing and image sharpness changes
