VinAI Artificial Intelligence Application and Research Joint Stock Company (a member of Vingroup) announced the deployment of GuardPro, a wide range of AI-powered safety and compliance use cases, in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. GuardPro is a comprehensive AI solution designed for real-time monitoring of residential and commercial buildings of smart cities to enhance safety and compliance.
VinAI’s GuardPro features AI models and leverages advanced computer vision technologies that can efficiently support up to 150 camera streams per AI accelerator to detect non-compliance and identify security concerns in the monitored area. To develop breakthrough technologies, VinAI has collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies to deploy these advanced solutions.
GuardPro is capable of capturing and providing alerts for a wide range of issues, such as unallowed object placement in hallways, oversized objects in passenger elevators, parking violations, and other regulatory violations and sends real-time notifications to the management department. Furthermore, GuardPro has the ability to scale, adapt, and self-enhance through real-world applications.
The AI models were developed for Qualcomm® Cloud AI 100 hardware, using VinAI’s high-throughput video analytics SDK which was built taking advantage of Qualcomm® AI Stack tools. These optimization efforts can lead to businesses saving up to 30% on hardware costs, whilst simultaneously reducing electricity and operational expenses.
Dr. Bui Hai Hung, CEO of VinAI said:“One major hurdle for applying video analytics is the enormous computing resource required for running AI models. We are proud that our team has successfully developed the most economical AI solutions for large-scale systems with thousands of GuardPro cameras in about over 6 months. I hope, GuardPro will join hands to bring modern technology to life, contributing to bringing peace of mind to every home soon”. said.
Rahul Patel, SVP and GM, Connectivity, Cloud and Networking of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. said: ““We are working with partners such as VinAI to enable performance breakthroughs leading to practical, efficient, and advanced technologies to enhance security using our edge AI capabilities.”
In Vietnam, Vinhomes Smart City (Hanoi) is one of the first urban areas to deploy the GuardPro solution, incorporating the Qualcomm Cloud AI 100 processor into its smart city system.
Mr. Nguyen Dang Trung, Director of Product Development Institute, Vinhomes, said:"The total number of camera streams at Vinhomes Smart City being handled by GuardPro is more than 9,000 streams in indoor and outdoor areas, including lobby, elevators, corridors, parking lots and playgrounds.... The AI camera system continuously monitors urban areas and detects abnormalities, sending real-time alerts to the Security Department and improving security and safety. It has brought practical benefits to Vinhomes Smart City such as contributing to the establishment of safety and ensures compliance with general regulations for its residents and improving their quality of life." said
After its success in Vinhomes Smart City, VinAI plans to deploy GuardPro in many other modern urban areas in Vietnam and expand to other Asian countries including India, Indonesia, Korea, and Malaysia.
