Irvine, California and Brussels, Belgium, November 10, 2022 (Globe Newswire) – bots SeoulToday, the company working on the future of autonomy through smart infrastructure, announced a partnership with flow™, the leading solutions provider for people movement analytics, to deliver a suite of privacy-friendly solutions for real-time insights into foot traffic and crowd movements. The solutions will be available across Europe for organizations and governments to get actionable data that can change how people participate in cities, airports, malls, museums and other public places.
The new system will use 3D sensors with Seoul Robotics’ proprietary perception software, SENSR™, encased in a first-of-its-kind patented glass technology that enables LiDAR sensors to operate behind opaque glass. This enables multiple, discreet solution formats including interactive smart kiosks and cases that integrate with the surrounding architecture. Aesthetic solutions can also be used to get rich data-driven insights – comparable to web analytics services – for physical ads to track conversion rates.
“Simply put, more insights with greater accuracy leads to better operations. Historically, it has been difficult to develop solutions to obtain accurate insights into people’s movement without compromising individual privacy,” said William Mueller, Vice President of Business Development at Seoul Robotics. With Flow, we can deploy privacy solutions first with smart ads and route-finding screens, maximizing their value and capturing robust data to improve visitor navigation, operational planning, public safety, and more.”
By design, the suite of solutions is fully privacy compliant and does not collect any biometric or other personally identifiable details such as IP addresses or cellular tracking information. This allows solutions to be deployed discreetly in densely populated places without raising privacy concerns or disrupting the audience’s experience.
“Existing solutions focus heavily on using 2D cameras to capture biometric data, so we wanted to create a high-resolution solution that puts privacy first,” said Robin Levrant, General Manager at Flow. “By partnering with Seoul Robotics, we can not only offer a palliative solution, but also leverage 3D visualization to gain a broader scale and range of insights.”
SENSR is able to perceive the movement of hundreds of people and objects simultaneously within an error of 4 cm, making it the most accurate LiDAR image analysis technology on the market. The software is also sensorless, enabling flexible and scalable solutions that can incorporate a variety of 3D sensors to achieve maximum versatility based on individual budget and deployment criteria.
Seoul Robotics and Flow will showcase its innovative smart kiosk solutions at the Smart City Expo Global Conference in Barcelona, November 15-17, 2022. Visit Seoul Robotics at Stand #103 and Flow at Stand #192 to learn more.
