KritiKal Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a technology design house, specialized in outsourced product design and R&D has launched application software which improves visibility in foggy weather conditions for security and surveillance applications. Enhancement of Vision Ranges through Fog Module is highly computationally intensive embedded application that requires special purpose hardware platform and dedicated embedded software development running on the embedded hardware to meet the required performance and real time constraints. The software is capable of handling inputs form different scenarios and of different spectral wave length resulting in high-resolution images. KritiKal Solutions application is a highly computationally intensive embedded application which takes video inputs from different camera types, such as IR, Colour CCD, SWIR and applies physical modeling methods to extenuate the effects of adverse weather conditions and degradation, resulting in high quality real time solution.Features
The main features of the system include:
ü Support for both Thermal and CCD cameras
ü Real-time processing of input videos.
ü Enhancement of input video stream using fog removal module.
ü Change detection, tracking and classification of targets.
ü Providing options for Playback, hardware testing, archival and algorithm settings on GUI either from host PC or on the system.
ü Image stitching and mosaicing of obtained video.
ü Resolution improvement using Retinex and adaptive Weiner filtering.
ü Video compression, decompression and streaming facilities.
ü Providing streaming facility over Wi-Fi.About KritiKal
