Configuring object counting in Intelligent Insights
Intelligent Insights makes use of Bosch cameras’ built-in Video Analytics to interpret video images and collect metadata from cameras. This metadata is collected, aggregated, and displayed using a series of pre-defined widgets within a user defined dashboard to visualize the data. Read on to learn how to configure object counting in Intelligent Insights.

First, configure the analytics task in Configuration Manager:
  • Calibrate the camera. Then, click the VCA menu tab and select Video Analytics operating mode profile #1
  • Click the Metadata Generation tab, select Tracking, enable 3D tracking, and save
  • Click the Task menu button, and delete the default Detect any object task
  • Click the + button and select Counter
  • Click next to define the line and direction
  • Click next to select the object to be counted
  • Click Finish and save the settings
Next, create the object counting use case in Intelligent Insights.
  • Navigate to the Use cases menu
  • Click the + button
  • From the Use case family drop down list, select Object count
  • Enter the name
  • Select widget, report, or both
  • Select the Presentation mode
  • Select the Use case time period to display
  • Set the number above which an alarm will display in red
  • Set the number above which a warning will display in orange
  • Select an icon for representing the counted objects
  • Select the camera and camera task for the use case
  • Click Save
The counted objects are now ready to be displayed in the system dashboard.
