1. Release of Product - MigmaDVRTM

Migma has released its new product, MigmaDVRTM. This product is a sophisticated unattended security surveillance system. It utilizes Migma's proprietary analytical video cueing technologies to capture and store moving objects, which makes it possible to record less amount of images in a typical computer hard drive over one year. It also includes a sophisticated video search software tool which, based on the size of objects of interest, is capable of condensing a large amount of saved videos into one video file for offline viewing and inspection. MigmaDVRTM is preconfigured and includes 8 high resolution cameras (540 TVL), an 8-channel video capture card, and a regular desktop computer. While its performance is better than most of the 8-channel DVR systems on the market, the overall system cost is much lower because of the use of regular desktop computer.

2. Beta Test of MigmaMidblockTM

Under FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) Phase I/II funding, Migma has developed a product, MigmaMidblockTM, using stereoscopic technologies for the pedestrian detection at mid-block crossings and signalized intersections. Working with Mass Highway, this product has been fielded at a mid-block crossing in MA for over 6 months. It triggers the beacon flashers once pedestrians are detected in the detection zone. Its performance has been compared with both passive IR detector and microwave detector which are currently recognized as two best candidates for outdoor pedestrian detections. Although stereo vision based pedestrian detection technologies have been studied over the past decades, there are currently no field-proven commercial stereoscopic products for pedestrian detections. MigmaMidblockTM represents the cutting edge technology for pedestrian detection in the outdoor environment, with better performance compared to existing technologies. The product brochure can be downloaded here.

3. Army CPP Award

Migma has received the CPP (Commercialization Pilot Program) award from U.S. Army for the product development and technology transition. Details can be found at http://www.armysbir.com/sbir/cpp_desc.htm. Based on CPP funding, Migma will work closely with Army for the algorithm improvement, near real-time implementation, sensor driver development, and extensive field tests. MILCOM Venture Partners will provide Migma with expert advice, market research, and business plan development. They will also identify potential customers within and external to the U.S. Army, prepare detailed technology transition plans, and assist in securing additional investment in the projects from other government or private sector organizations to further the development, fielding, and potential commercialization.

4. Product development for Motorcycle and Bicycle Detection and Classification

Detection, classification, and characterization are the key to enhancing motorcycle safety, operations and travel estimation. Motorcycle fatalities are currently estimated at 30 times those of auto fatalities per Vehicle Mile Traveled (VMT). Although it has been an active research area for many years, motorcycle detection and classification still remain as a challenging task. Under FHWA funding, Migma is developing a new cutting-edge product to detect motorcycles, classify them separately and accurately from other vehicles, and identify different types of motorcycles such as heavy touring-class motorcycles, light motorcycles, motor scooters, mopeds, bicycles and tricycles. In this product, Migma will modify and enhance its existing pedestrian detection algorithms to detect motorcyclists, and consequently, the motorcycles. The IR thermal camera is incorporated in the product design to capture some unique thermal features associated with various types of motorcycles. An array of microphones is embedded in the stereo camera enclosure for better acoustic signal analysis.
