TSU has received two patents for programs designed to recognize people in a video stream and in a static state. They were created by scientists at the Faculty of Innovative Technologies. Software products are already used in Vietnam to ensure order and safety in public places and at one of the country's largest seaports, Hai Phong.

- Digital technologies are increasingly being used to maintain order, - explains Vladimir Syryamkin, one of the developers of the program, head of the TSU Department of Quality Management at the Faculty of Technology. -One of these products, a program for recognizing people in a moving stream, recently patented by TSU, is used in Vietnam. This country has a high average population density - about 300 people per km². For comparison, it is 30 times more than Russia’s, which is about 9 people per km². Along with this, Vietnam is a resort country with a large flow of visitors, so it is important to ensure public order.

Semyon Klestov, a senior engineer at the educational laboratory of measuring methods in the Faculty of Innovative Technologies, Nguyen The Khe Kyong, a Ph.D. student from Vietnam, and Professor Vladimir Syryamkin, his supervisor, worked on the development of IT products.

When creating a program that identifies people in motion, scientists had to solve several complex technical problems due to the need to fix faces, process images and identify a person in a moving stream, and do this in real-time. The system must quickly and accurately distinguish the faces of people of different races with an accuracy of at least 90% under any conditions, including at dusk, in the rain, and other conditions. The second program, created at the Faculty of Innovative Technologies, reveals the characteristic features of a person in a static state - size, appearance, and others.

- The programs are based on vision systems and neural network algorithms, which are created and developed by the TSU Faculty of Innovative Technologies, - says Vladimir Syryamkin. - These tools are used by us in robotics and mechatronics, and they help robots and drones to determine the terrain and independently build a route. The new programs are already being used to control public order and to ensure security at a strategic facility in one of Vietnam's largest ports, Hai Phong. Soon, Vietnam Maritime University will be able to use them.
