The Ouster x Accur8vision solution is capable of monitoring and protecting a wide variety of environments, including critical infrastructure such as airports, commercial buildings and residential properties. The technologies in place, such as cameras and radars, are not sufficient in complex environments, such as a crowded environment, or when visibility is reduced. Ouster x Accur8vision is designed to enhance existing security systems by providing an additional layer of perception that can be used to proactively detect potential threats.

The Ouster x Accur8vision security solution helps operators:

  • Reduce false alarms with more accurate, volume-based intruder detection and tracking

  • Monitor any custom-sized area with a single detection view across multiple lidar sensors

  • Set advanced security controls with unlimited 3D zones and custom priority alarms per zone

  • Integrates with existing pan, zoom, and tilt (PTZ) cameras for efficient tracking and recording

  • Easily configure a security system without prior knowledge of lidar

“Our solution combines Ouster’s reliable, high-resolution digital lidar technology with Hexagon’s industry-leading security expertise,” said Martin Vojtek, president and CEO of Tacticaware. “Together, we are introducing a revolutionary security product designed to solve the biggest and most costly problem for security operators today: false alarms.

As the demand for security solutions increases, government data privacy regulations, such as the US Facial Recognition Act and the moratorium on biometric technology, have limited the use of biometric surveillance, such as systems camera-based security. Lidar-based security solutions are uniquely positioned to fill this gap.
