Cepton and Barrier1 Systems have partnered for early-warning intrusion detection and onsite safety applications. The partnership leverages the capabilities of Cepton’s Helius system, which combines a network of Vista-P lidar sensors with edge computing and advanced perception software, to deliver real-time, anonymized, 3D object detection, classification, tracking and velocity. In one customer application, Barrier1 Systems has combined its barrier control systems with Helius to monitor the speed and direction of vehicles approaching entrance or exit points. If a vehicle exceeds a certain speed limit within a specified range, the system will flag it as a potential intrusion attempt and trigger an alert to the central system for further actions. By classifying vehicle travel direction, it can also guard against incoming threats through outbound roadways.
