ARIS Movement Detections

The ARIS Explorer 3000 sonar is a non-rotating multibeam sonar, operating at a frequency of 3 Mhz with 128 beams. The sonar covers 28 degrees horizonantly and 14 degrees vertically.  For more information, see the manufacturer's website: http://www.soundmetrics.com.The ARIS solfware ARIScope can be requested through the Sound Metrics website http://www.soundmetrics.com (go to the support page) or Contact us.

This data product is an annotation (.an) file containing a record of potential movement detections in the ARIS sonar data as generated by the data product post-processor only. As such as, these files may not yet be generated and made available for all ARIS files; Data Search will return only the files that are in the archive (Unlike ARIS MAT and MP4 files that may be generated on-the-fly from ARIS files). Movement detections by the post-processor also trigger an email to be sent out to subscribers with the same information as stored in this file (Contact us if you would like your email address to be added post-processor's recipient list). The algorithm is simple and described in the email (see below). The parameters have been tuned for the initial data that is available in the first week of ARIS operation, but may change at a later date. We predict that the algorithm will generate false-positive detections for interference, although such interference doesn't appear in the live data (only observed in test tank data).

A secondary output is an email, here's an example:

Subject: Movement detected in ARIS file ARIS3000-1099_20170511T230002.984Z_20170511T231500.073Z.mp4: 3 detection(s), totalling 11.5 seconds (DEV/QA)
 
ARIS Sonar Matlab Postprocess Job has detected movement in ARIS3000-1099_20170511T230002.984Z_20170511T231500.073Z.mp4.


Detections as follows:
Frame index 91, duration: 7 frames (3.5 seconds)
Frame index 898, duration: 11 frames (5.5 seconds)
Frame index 1682, duration: 5 frames (2.5 seconds)

Movement detection parameters as follows:
arismovementdetection.threshold: 30
arismovementdetection.minsizealongbeam.cm: 3.6
arismovementdetection.minsizeacrossbeam.pixels: 3
arismovementdetection.mintimeseconds: 2


The detection algorithm: subtract the median value of each pixel from
itself to remove the background, then, in each frame, if the number of
pixels above the threshold exceeds the number specified by the size
thresholds (in total, not contiguous), which is 9, and 4 consecutive frames
have this condition, then a detection is made and this alert is generated.
