Operator Control Challenges and Solutions

Visual integration is the key because it greatly impacts the human-machine interface, which, in turn, enhances the operator’s situational awareness.

Deepening the Value of Surveillance

Deep Learning has swept through the IT industry, bringing benefits and better classifications to a number of applications. Inspired by the way the human brain works, the technology uses a layered learning process to enable the computer to classify, store and access data, which it can then refer to for learning. This means it can use a whole image to recognise, rather than relying on separate elements of that image. This is a cumulative process – the more elements it has to draw on, the better the classification – thus,…
