Summary At Wilson Mofya Chakulya Toll on the T3 Motorway in Zambia, a network of video cameras from Vivotek have been installed. The IB9367‐HT cameras in the lanes have smart motion detection. This means they can detect silhouettes and human activity. The VMS which the network is hosted on, Vivotek VAST 2, can have smart person and object detection. A brochure for VAST 2 states that Vivotek VAST facial recognition is fully integrated with the system. License plate recognition is definitely in use at the toll.

Description[ ]

A new Vivotek solution has been put in place at a Zambian toll. The camera IB9367‐HT has smart motion detection which can detect humans and their silhouettes. Vivotek Vast 2 VMS can have people detection. License plate recognition is certainly in use.

Vivotek IP video surveillance provides safe circulation on Zambian roads Vivotek at Garneton toll. In the toll Wilson Mofya Chakulya have been installed 8 IB9367‐HT cameras in the lanes, 9 IP9165-LPR-A Kit for night surveillance and 4 CC8160 inside the control building. All managed with Vast software 2 of Vivotek 1

Commissioned by the Zambia National Road Fund Agency, Vivotek collaborated with the system integrator, Africa Technology Operations and Maintenance (ATOM), to renovate existing cameras along the Garneton toll road. In addition, these had to be centrally connected and managed. This was done with the software Vivotek Vast 2 1

The following detail the capabilities of VAST 2 VMS

Building on Deep-Learning Video Content Analytics, the Smart Search II of VAST 2 allows users to quickly search for specific objects and people in the specified region. While enabling People Detection feature, only people-based activities will serve as event triggers. The security operator no longer needs to search through extensive footage for critical videos, thus improving both efficiency and effectiveness 2

These details are from a brochure for VAST 2 for which this deployment in Zambia is listed as a success story.

VAST Face Facial Recognition solutions are fully integrated with VAST 2, allowing users to apply it to a variety of applications including identity verification, live alerts/notifications, access control, and person of interest management 3
