Video monitoring in Wialon

Topic: Video monitoring in Wialon

Dear community,

Last year we integrated video monitoring in Wialon, which supports SmartWitness KP1. Workflow with this device assumes sending a request for a specific footage and saving it to our FTP server.


Throughout the year we collected a number of requests regarding video monitoring. Hence today we work in that direction. For the next step, we are planning to

i) integrate devices of:       

  • Everfocus
  • Servision
  • Howen
  • Streamax

(Please, leave your request below if you don't see the manufacturer of your interest)

Supporting the above-mentioned devices will change our video monitoring workflow.
We request video footage directly from the devices and do not keep it on our FTP server.

ii) provide you a convenient tool for video monitoring in Wialon Hosting.

We've prepared two versions of the video monitoring prototype:

  • Version 1 - Minimap window gets a special video monitoring view:

    http://dl4.joxi.net/drive/2017/04/27/0022/1790/1500926/26/571b220902.jpg

  • Version 2 - Separate tab in Wialon Hosting:

    http://dl3.joxi.net/drive/2017/04/27/0022/1790/1500926/26/6acca53b83.jpg

Please vote for one of the options and leave us your feedback.

Your answers will help us to determine the best way to integrate video monitoring in Wialon.
We would appreciate any details from your side. In the case of sensitive information, you may contact me in PM.

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

i think minimap would be better: in real live you watch real time video only if you want to check a special driver / case etc.
No need to watch "many many multiple streams and superduper organize them"...

(just my opinion).

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Minimap is definitely the way to go.

As you are integrating more video input devices, it would be a good idea to do the following as well:

1. Enhance Wiatag so that it can send video on demand. This will allow any ruggedized Android  device with front/back cameras to be used as a Dashcam

2. Enhance Wialon IPS protocol to include video input/on demand video,  or alternately publish a generic Video Input protocol for Wialon.  This will allow Android/iOS apps that have features such as messaging and other features (not found in Wiatag) to send video to Wialon as well.

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

If Wiatag app is also being modified to have video, here are a list of feature suggestions:

Driver initiated Live Video with option for front/back cameras (with
automatic turn off after 30, 60 , 90 etc. secs ??? to avoid excessive data
charge)

Dispatcher initiated Live Video with option for front/back camera (with
automatic turn off after 30, 60 , 90 etc. secs ??? to avoid excessive data
charge)

A Job that can be set up to request video every X minutes (nice to have)

Ability to forward/email a video clip (nice to have)

Ability to send video (post?) to some external (AWS) archival system –
nice to have

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Pavel there are couple of considerations that need to be looked at when working with video apart from the management of the increase in the data stream.

1. There should be automated uploads of short (30second) video's based on a trigger that would be available in Wialon. The trigger could be user definable. Standard setting would be say 20sec before the event and 10 sec post the event. The event would also trigger the minimap to pop up. The playback of this video clip should also show all of the captured parameters from the device such as speed, accelerometer etc

2. Analysis of video's should not be done in Wialon but in a dedicated application to reduce the server load. However the triggering of the extraction to a local server or a cloud store could be done via a job or notification in Wialon. User needs to make sure that the extracted video is in a format they can directly play, ie AVI, MP4 etc unless they have a player that can work with the video clip directly.

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

A thorough analysis of user requests, several months of development and testing and we are ready to implement almost any project in the area of video monitoring thanks to the new module in Wialon beta-version.

While working with the map you can quickly switch to video mode. After its activation, you access a work area where video windows are located. Every window presents a separate video player with the options to select a unit and a camera. 

After clicking “Video” button in the monitoring panel a mini window pop-ups featuring the first camera stated in Unit Properties.   

The size, number, type of displayed cameras along with grid size can be changed in settings available right in the video-mode window.

Nowadays video surveillance in GPS tracking is on the rise which means the functionality of the new module will soon be extended. We want Gurtam analysts and developers to work closely with our community and look forward to your ideas and suggestions about how to advance the module. Together we’ll create the solution subject to your needs.

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

While Video monitoring is great, having implemented hundreds of KP1 from Smart Witness and looking forward to implementing the other models like Howen, I propose that you integrate still image cameras as well such as MVC300 from Teltonika. Some customers are happy to work with still images only.

Thanks

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Hi, I have a question,
Let us say the client allready has a Calamp 2630 tracking unit in the vehicle. Now he wants to add a MDVR to the same vehicle.. Let us just assume its a Streamax X3  H0402.
Now he has 2 devices in one vehicle. Will this mean he can integrate the 2 devices under a single vehicle unit or does he now have to have 2 seperate units and 2 icons for the same vehicle under the monitor tab in Wialon. It would be great to only have one vehicle unit under monitoring with ability to see GPS position as well as camera view together.

26

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Gotyou If both devices send data to server separately -- it's impossible to make 1 unit.

May be, tracking device (like Calamp) can  be connected to MDVR (like Streamax). For example, Calamp sends telematics data to streamax via RS232/485  and  streamax sends data to a server -- it's possible to have 1 unit with video and parameters. It's better to ask manufacturers of the devices.

For example, we know that Calamp can be connected to Servision MDVR. But we've never tested the exactly functions

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Dear Gurtam team,

The option minimapa more like the customers.
I have to add that in addition to the video, could also include the snapshots (images) that a device sends to the server.
I have customer queries that use Smartwitness KP1 that have asked me about this possibility.

Greetings.

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

I have another question. Normally the mdvr points to a dedicated video server that will allow detailed analysis of the video files on a video analysys tool like  CMSV6. Typically also the video footage can be downloaded via 3G to view. If the mdvr is pointed to Wialon server how will the histroric data be viewed and downloaded. I am not sure how this will work. Can a member of Wialon team explain this to me. I hope my question make sense.

30

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Gotyou, it depends on the device you use. Live stream is not stored in Wialon. And episodes in the past required by the command are stored. Some mdvrs have such options, some don't.

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Hi there

Is it possible to add a function to bind a MDVR to a unit? let me explain, when we are talking about MDVRs, most of them don't support advanced functions like CAN data reading or FLS sensors connection. If we want to have such advanced data on one vehicle we have to create 2 unit for each vehicle and it not only cost but also it's not convenient. My idea is that if we want to offer customers video surveillance plus advanced FMS  functions we can create an unit with an advanced device like BCE Blue+ and then bind a MDVR without GPS function to this unit. this way we have all data from BCE plus video files or live streaming from MVDR in same time. What you think?

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Hi Gurtam team
 
     I'm testing 1 unit of Hero-ME41-04 on your hosting (beta) and have questions below.
1. The detail of parameters.
    Could you share the detail of device parameters? (attached Hero-ME41-04-Parameter.png)?
2. Cannot download VDO.
     According to the specification of VDO download command that the maximum of duration is 20 seconds.
I found that the VDO could not be downloaded if I set the duration more than 16 sec. I'm not sure it is the device problem or software bug. Could you please check?
3. Online VDO monitoring
    It seems the function "Online VDO monitoring" for this device type does not finish yet. Could you tell me a rough schedule when you will finish it?

Looking at how media is downloaded and saved.

we would like the media to be saved using the unit name as opposed to the code that appears while saving.(see attachment)

it is hard to identify media if you do not remember the unit name.

Can the system capture the unit name automatically as we save the media?

We would like to suggest few UI improvement native mobile app parameters reporting for smart-witness camera.
Currently photo_uri and video_uri / video_uri13  in the mobile app are not playing when user clicks/touches on the same.  We see it as a prompt message with URL which doesn't make sense.

- User intent on mobile device is to watch the video or view the photo when he/she clicks on that parameters.  I think app should show either play the video or show photo when user click for those paramters

Video monitoring in Wialon

Re: Video monitoring in Wialon

Some time ago hhamedk asked quite an interesting question:
"Is it possible to add a function to bind a MDVR to a unit? let me explain, when we are talking about MDVRs, most of them don't support advanced functions like CAN data reading or FLS sensors connection...."

This question deserves additional comment.

Yes, it is possible to do it and this is an interesting solution which allows to combine a GPS-tracker with advanced functions and an MDVR with video functions in one unit in Wialon.
In Wialon it will be one unit (a GPS-tracker) with the support of video functions from an MDVR.

Usually we support the following functions for MDVRS in Wialon:
- viewing live video
- downloading video files from the MDVR

Due to the technical peculiarities, now the following MDVRS integrated in Wialon can be bound to a GPS-tracker unit in Wialon:
- "IVG400-N" from SerVision
- "Streamax X3-H0402" from Streamax Technology

Both devices support live video and requesting video files if used as self-sufficient device types in Wialon.
But there are certain limits due to the technical peculiarities of the aforementioned MDVRs if they are bound to a GPS-tracker unit in Wialon.
In such cases "IVG400-N" can be used both for viewing live video and requesting video files.
"Streamax X3-H0402" can be used only for viewing live video.

We should note that now the manufacturers of the MDVRs integrated in Wialon are aware that solutions for fleet management require specific functions and many of these functions are already supported by the integrated MDVRs.

In wialon bits start from 1 (not from 0) that's why you should set up the sensor basing on "status1:1" parameter.
