Development of Object Scan and Object Monitor

It all started at Schiphol Airport

Years ago Amsterdam Schiphol Airport became aware of the potential danger of the conveyor belt at the check-in desk. Passengers can easily access. Accidents at other airports were reported in the news.

Schiphol Airport wanted to be safe and secure. How to minimize the risk at baggage drop before entering the automated(!) baggage handling system (BHS)?

The first attempts detecting people

A major well respected company started to work on a solution. How to detect people in front of the BHS, was the starting-point.

Obviously, a thermal camera was thought to bring the solution. However, body temperature appeared to have not enough discriminating power at the conveyor belt. Too many "hot" sources other than people caused false alarms. 

BPI takes over technological innovation

BPI was invited to work on the thermal analysis system. Even with special analysis software the reliability of the thermal analysis system remained too low. There were too many false alarms.

BPI tried to minimize the number of false alarms by introducing a second (daylight) camera. The idea was to separate the regular 'hot' suitcases from the objects.

In fact, BPI became leading in the technological development of the product, which would be called Object Scan later on.

Serendipity favours 3D camera

After a while of thorough thinking and experimenting with various equipment BPI found a way for a working surveillance system. The insight was: identify all pieces baggage on the conveyor belt and focus on the anomalous objects if any.

This turning point proved to be successful and led to the present Object Scan. A combination of a 3D camera and special software developed by BPI in-house is able to characterise the baggage flow and unwanted objects such as people on the conveyor belt at the check-in desk.

The proof of principle was given at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

It all works at Schiphol Airport

BPI optimized the 3D scan system, added proper algoritmes to the analysis software, provided connectivity to other information systems and so on. Object Monitor became the solution for detecting people on a conveyor belt.

Object Monitor runs properly at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport. Besides preventing people to get in the trouble during automated baggage handling Object Monitor offers additional management information to improve the performance of the BHS.
