Vehicle analytics uses powerful edge-based capabilities to detect vehicles and filter results based on vehicle color and body type.
How it Works
Vehicle analytics leverages the cameras' powerful onboard processing capabilities to detect the presence of, and analyze the properties of vehicles as they appear in the frame. As vehicles are detected, high-resolution images are taken and analyzed for vehicle objects. Selected images are then sent to Verkada’s cloud-based Command platform, where users can filter historical clips for vehicles and search for specific vehicles by time, date, body type, and color.
When scrubbing through a camera's historical video clips, yellow bounding boxes will appear over all detected vehicles.
Enable Vehicle Analytics
All Verkada cameras perform vehicle detection (as outlined above) out of the box. However, to enable more complex analytics, such as the ability to search for vehicles by color and body type, vehicle analytics must be turned on.
