This project involved using high quality cameras to detect suspicious items. It involved implementing image stitching algorithms, image matching algorithms and Machine Learning algorithms. Image Stitching was done by detecting interest points and then combing the image based on the common boundary. SURF algorithm and correlation was used for image matching. A prototype of the actual product was created in this project. This project was a part of our New Venture (Start-up) and the product would be sold to malls, hotels, hospitals, government institutions and other such places. This was a part of a course New Venture Creation, through this course we interacted with the founders of various successful start-ups like exotel, gharpay, redbus, grey orange robotics, etc. 

*  This idea was selected one of the 3 best start-up ideas to be pitched at BITSAA Global Meet, 2014
