Jakarta, 31 October, 2018 – PT. Hitachi Asia Indonesia, announced today that it will be showcasing a next-gen detection and tracking technology to Indonesia Infrastructure Week 2018 (IIW) as a Platinum Sponsor. The event runs for three days, from 31 October to 2 November 2018, at Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran.

The technology uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to distinguish an individual in real-time through features from over 100 categories of external characteristics such as gender, clothing colour, carried items and more to facilitate immediate detection and tracking. Through public security cameras, suspicious individuals or lost children can be tracked using information from eye-witnesses.

“Hitachi remains committed to contribute towards the security landscape in Indonesia to maintain a secure environment for its people. We look forward to co-creating a future that is safe for all with the stakeholders here.” said Mr. Takashi Ikematsu, President Director of PT. Hitachi Asia Indonesia.

By analysing the entire image of the person detected, monitoring and tracking can be done based on images with the target’s back-view, when the face cannot be seen, or when the individual is far away.

“This year marks the sixth year of IIW 2018. For three whole days, every key player in the infrastructure supply chain will be given a platform to share knowledge, open a new business opportunity, build connection, and showcase their innovative products. We hope that through this event, just like Hitachi, every exhibitor can showcase their innovation and new technology to support the government’s infrastructure development,” said Mr. Cheah Wai Hong, Portfolio Director of Tarsus Indonesia.
