North Carolina-based Barrier1 Systems is working with global customers in the public and private sectors to install innovative new solutions that leverage the unique 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. The partnership demonstrates the versatility of Cepton’s lidar technology, and how smart lidar solutions are increasing security and safety in various types of public and private commercial spaces and facilities.

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.

Deployments like the one above utilize the Cepton Vista lidar’s long range, high resolution imaging capabilities, and the Helius solution’s real-time, 3D information on object dimensions, locations and velocities. For example, Barrier 1 Systems uses Helius to detect and classify vehicles at 150 meters and keep track of their velocities to help diagnose whether there is a potential breach. The object information from Helius is much more accurate than from radars, thereby minimizing false positives and false negatives.

Barrier1 Systems has also deployed Cepton’s Helius system to help ensure facility security and onsite safety. For instance, a network of Vista-P90 lidar sensors has been installed at customer inventory sites to monitor access points. Helius generates useful information such as whether a detected object is a vehicle or a person, how fast it is moving and whether it is in a pre-defined exclusion zone. As lidars perform 24/7 under many weather and lighting conditions challenging for cameras, this helps facility managers continuously ensure property security and worker safety. Facilities can utilize the smart lidar data to flag potential accidents and breaches of access control.

Speaking of the partnership, Baxter Matthews, Vice President of Security Projects at Barrier1 Systems, said: “Cepton’s lidar technology and perception solution have allowed us to unleash a new set of innovations and capabilities when it comes to security and safety, which is critical given the range of threats and challenges faced today in both public and private spaces. The simplicity of installation of Cepton’s solution makes it easy for us to deploy and scale up quickly. Further, the anonymous nature of the lidar images, combined with their high accuracy, enables significant advancements in the state of the art for security and safety. A major customer liked the advantages of our solution so much that they want to do a nationwide implementation at all of their sites, which is incredible. What’s exciting is that we are just scratching the surface of what is possible because there are many untapped applications – in the perimeter security industry and beyond – where customers see tremendous potential for solutions arising from our partnership with Cepton.”

Dr. Jun Pei, Cepton’s co-founder and CEO, added: “Beyond its well-known role in the automotive industry, lidar is a versatile technology that enables a whole new level of safety and autonomy in many other applications. Our partnership with Barrier1 is a testament to this. We have designed our MMT®-based lidar solutions with customers’ perception needs in mind, and for security and safety solutions like the ones developed by Barrier1, we have focused on delivering a superior combination of accuracy, reliability and scalability. We look forward to continuing our work with Barrier1 to expand the use cases for lidar globally, by enabling enhanced safety and security solutions using lidar intelligence.”
