PLE Background

Current customers include Iberdrola EMS & Security, Lockheed Martin, Air Force Research Labs, Hanscom Air Force Base, Kandahar AFB, Afghanistan, Tennessee Air National Guard, and NYSEARCH.

Current partners include NYSEG, RG&E, Day Automation, D3 Engineering, AXIS, ONSSI. We use contracts with University of Rochester, and Rochester Institute of Technology to access consulting for all research projects.


A-GAS I is the only product that can detect excavating events only, even in busy area

PLE is well positioned with local vendors/suppliers to fulfill multiple orders

PLE has already initiated hardware that will run A-GAS II via in-kind funding

RGE and Con Edison has expressed interest in A-GAS II

PLE Uniquely Qualified


A gas 1 what we did
A-GAS 1 What We Did events only, even in busy area

Collected video data in Rochester

Adapted our video software to detect excavating activity

Two test sites successfully completed:

Suburban: Scottville Road- RGE

Urban: E 16 St - Con Edison Scottsville and Con Ed working on accuracy of detections

Summary of results
Summary of Results events only, even in busy area

Scottsville Road – RG&E

E16 St & Ave C – Con Edison


How we achieved results
How we achieved results events only, even in busy area

Our unique ability to ignore non-threatening activity in video and accurately detect digging without database signatures (on-the-fly) was accomplished using the following techniques:

Tracking repetitive motion

Timing the motion activity

Using multi-level timing of motion activity

Measure and track an anchor distance from possible alarm activity


A gas i
A-Gas I events only, even in busy area

Total Weight Approximately 400 lbs for a four camera kit.


A gas ii
A-GAS II events only, even in busy area


Phase ii project tasks
Phase II Project Tasks events only, even in busy area

3.1 Final Design & Product Acquisition of AVT H/W

Software to be adapted for A-GAS II

Hardware paid by PLE and provided as in-kind contribution

3.2 Lab Testing & Data gathering

3.2.1 Record video of scripted damage intrusions for semi-live testing

3.22 Run semi-live testing in lab to compare A-GAS I with A-GAS II and ensure no functionality is lost with A-GAS II

3.3 Field Testing – Work with member companies to demonstrate A-GAS II in real-world environment at two sites (TBD)


Phase ii objectives
Phase II Objectives events only, even in busy area

Evaluate additional techniques to identify potentially hazardous activity like monitoring object height oscillation and cueing off of color to change sensitivity

Incorporate new algorithms for enhanced tracking capabilities for overlapping objects

Optimize software adaptations from Phase I for A-GAS II embedded processing platform

Integrate wireless alarm communications to remote networked devices

Design mounting mechanism for A-GAS II


A gas ii requirements
A-GAS II – Requirements events only, even in busy area

Rugged enough for field use

Easy to install-pole mount system

Remote wireless alarm to computer/PDA

Reduced power

Enhanced detection software

Relative low cost


Schedule
Schedule events only, even in busy area


Deliverables
Deliverables events only, even in busy area

Project deliverables will consist of:

Two (2) universal tested commercial grade beta-prototype A-GAS II devices (small form factor) with universal cameras and mounts.

Installation Procedures

Operation Procedures

Documented Status

Final Report

Up to two (2) training sessions for member company representatives.

Deployment options
Deployment Options events only, even in busy area

  • A-Gas I Rapidly Deployable Kit (Tested in Phase I)

    AVT Hardware kit with security software adapted for damage prevention along pipeline right-of-ways. Kit includes cameras, tripods, power inverters, cables, and AVT-RMU with adapted software. This is available now to be integrated for remote via wireless or cell networks.

  • A-Gas II (To be Tested in this Phase II) we have small form factor security device HW to adapt to damage prevention applications similar to Phase I. This new device is smaller and needs less power. We plan to implement an IP interface to allow remote monitoring and alerting to be done using Internet Browser.

Deployment Options – Cont. events only, even in busy area

PLE is currently researching and developing a mobile trailer solution to provide another option for deploying the Phase I solution in to the field for remote monitoring of construction around pipelines.

The concept currently being worked is to develop a tow-behind trailer with standard power and communication to allow the same system to be used for damage prevention during the day and security monitoring at night.
