The Aquaji software runs on a Stix 5700 device or a Windows PC. It uses an IP or USB camera as its data source.
Aquaji plays a video stream and interprets images in real time. It only interprets the data within each image, but it does not record or save any visual content. As soon as a person is detected, the software feeds a virtual digital counter stored in RAM that is constituted exclusively of aggregated data. At no time can this data identify a specific person.
When using the occupancy time feature, a unique virtual fingerprint is briefly recorded and stored. This is a unique key assigned to each person expressed as an alpha numeric string, and this key is accurate to 80%. When a person is identified in this way, their fingerprint is stored in the device’s random-access memory. The data is deleted when they leave the monitored space, or within 23 hours of entry.
When enabled, the employee detection feature is subject to each person’s agreement. Most often, a clause to this effect will be added to the employment contract.
The software sends the aggregated data to a server at regular intervals and users can view the data in a graphical format. This user interface also lets some users view the video stream on-site. When a person is detected, their faces are automatically blurred, so people can’t be identified or recognized.
Software users can adjust, activate, or deactivate at any time any of the software’s 30 features, post-deployment. This lets them modify the software’s settings so they can adapt to changes in privacy rules or judicial precedents.
