Poseidon by MG International
Poseidon started to be developed in 1995 in Paris. At first an independent company, Poseidon was supported by venture capitalists and banks before being taken over by MG International at the end of 2006.
Poseidon has its main office in France (MG International-Poseidon, Boulogne), subsidiaries in the USA (Poseidon Technologies Inc, Atlanta) and in Norway (Poseidon Scandinavia, Moss).
Poseidon, a patented technology
First sold in France in 2000 and in the US in 2002, Poseidon integrates state-of-the-art technologies in computer vision and aquatic image processing and is the result of a close cooperation between its R&D engineers and some of the leading French research laboratories (Ecole Normale Supérieure, CNRS, INRIA).
Poseidon is a computer vision surveillance system that recognizes texture, volume and movement within a pool. Comprised of an advanced camera network that continually surveys the pool and a specialized software system that analyzes, in real-time, the trajectories of swimmers, the system can alert lifeguards in the first seconds of a potential accident to the exact location of the swimmer in danger
A proven technology : 19 lives saved
Since its first installation in 2000, the Poseidon system has triggered alerts resulting from real accidents and helped lifeguards detect and rescue 19 drowning victims.
180 sites equipped with the System worldwide
The Poseidon technology is now installed in more than 180 public pools in 10 countries.
