Device created in Russia can detect suspicious individuals in crowd
MOSCOW, October 23 - RAPSI. Russian scientists have presented the Spartan 300 program at an international exhibition in Moscow, which detects individuals with potentially deviant behavior in a crowd.
"We receive images of human faces from one or several cameras," the scientists reported in their materials presented at the Interpolitex-2012 International Exhibition of Equipment for National Security, which kicked off on Tuesday. "They are sent to a data processing unit that divides them automatically into red (distressed individuals) and green (normal individuals) categories."
The device's creators say that it has a large throughput capacity, an automated regime and reduces the human impact on the results, according to the materials. Renowned U.S. psychologist Paul Ekman's facial expression database is used in the system.
Ekman has long studied the psychology of human emotions and their relation to facial expressions.
