Development opportunities towards 2021 through video surveillance:
How is technology integrated to the needs of smart cities and their citizens? Axis experts share their knowledge on this.
With technological development, many definitions have emerged around the question “what is a smart city?”.
Currently there are many factors that determine that a city is classified as “smart”. However, there is no universally accepted definition, it varies depending on the region, its level of development. And the willingness of local governments to change. , its policies, resources and citizens’ aspirations.
It could be said that the common factor among all smart city projects in the world is in their ultimate goal: habitability, a characteristic essentially related to citizens.
Experts from companies such as Axis have agreed on this aspect. However, there are other factors that influence the sphere of smart cities; such as the crucial role of data aggregation in the construction of a smart city and the way in which surveillance systems can help cities become smarter.
Sergio Zaleta, Key Account Manager at Axis Communications, pointed out in this regard that any city that intends to become intelligent has a fundamental need for aggregated data in order to operate; since the “intelligent” aspect is based on linking a large amount of information from various sources and then make sense of it.
For example, devices such as network CCTV cameras can collect visual and audio information, which you can then pair with specialized sensors that measure environmental conditions, such as air quality, and from there create improvement strategies.
However, one of the main challenges of building a smart city is gathering this data, as it often requires breaking the line that divides each city department, the expert said.
Since a city will not be smart only because it has a video CCTV camera installation; it needs an integration that coexists with the different public services and with other network systems that together have benefits such as:
1. Efficiency in services
It is about optimizing the use of public resources to provide a better service to the citizen, such aspects can range from shortening response times to incidents, such as the management of public spaces.
Network CCTV cameras equipped with video analytics software can help in two ways:
- by making it easier to detect potential hazards and
- to recognize false alarms, without neglecting people’s sense of security and experience.
In the event of an incident, they can alert emergency services or authorities in real time, and provide crucial details of the scene.
This allows, for example, an ambulance service to assess the situation and be fully prepared to deal with it appropriately.
Video surveillance has taken a step beyond the fixed cameras installed in citizen security systems, they can also come from devices such as body cameras for security guards, which have already been a very important trend in other countries.
2. Improved mobility
Smart cities use surveillance systems to improve traffic management and urban mobility, making streets safer and more efficient for all users.
Video surveillance, along with video analytics, is a key tool for monitoring road networks, intersections, and how people move around the city. It provides a real-time view of traffic flow and incidents, including accidents and crowd management, that can disrupt the free flow of movement in the city.
3. Economic growth
A very important benefit of smart cities is the reduction of the costs of various services; which can be achieved through the information collected through cameras and sensors; as they allow the development of a preventive strategy that reduces costs in the long term, freeing up new funds that can be used to improve the city.
4. City development
Smart city projects are gaining traction globally, attracting new stakeholders and their funds to urban areas implementing these initiatives.
In addition to new resources, smart cities can expect their image to improve as the public begins to perceive them as safer, more sustainable and easier to live.
Smart cities don’t develop overnight. It can take years and many resources just to break down data silos and finally access the kind of key information that every smart city project is based on. Zaleta, points out that a key aspect for its success is the collaboration of different departments necessary to optimize processes and efficiency in cities.
As the development of smart cities continues, so does the development of the technology itself, from more advanced IoT devices, open architecture to multi-sensor cameras.
