Public Safety in Mind

Sighthound’s Public Safety SDK builds on the raw power of Sighthound Sentry SDK by adding configuration options for the most popular public safety use cases, leading to faster implementations. Combinations of modules can be turned on or off to suit the specific use case of the product being developed.

Vehicle Detection & Recognition

Detect vehicles from static or moving cameras, and return the make, model and color of any vehicle sold from 1991 onwards.

Person & Face Detection

Find and track humans as they pass through a scene, find their faces and keep track of the best shot of the face during the scene.

Face Recognition

Improve safety by verifying people are who they say they are. Match attendees to pre-trained galleries for attendance and authentication programs.
