How to Improve City Living by Maximizing Surveillance Systems

July 7, 2022

2 minutes read

We need surveillance systems for safety, efficiency, and long-term city planning. And we have to start acting now since it’s predicted that by 2050, the numbers of the current urban population will double. Maximizing surveillance solutions will also help to achieve numerous environmental goals, such as air quality and noise pollution measures. 

Ways to Improve City Living by Maximizing Surveillance Systems

1. Use Surveillance Systems to Enhance the Flow of Residents and Visitors

The way you get from point A to point B in the city environment – whether on foot, bicycle, e-scooter, or automobile – is one of the most significant factors contributing to a pleasant city experience.

We can use real-time network video technology to guarantee that traffic flows freely around the city while minimizing congestion. Intersection management and traffic light regulations are essential components of this.

Surveillance cameras outfitted with sophisticated software may be linked to traffic signals to count and better understand the flow of pedestrians, cyclists, and automobiles at intersections.

Effective parking management is another factor that influences traffic flow. The majority of city traffic is caused by vehicles hunting for available parking. To assist vehicles in finding parking spots, network camera solutions may be utilized to monitor free parking lots and transmit information to navigation applications or digital signs.

By applying automation, more efficiency can be obtained in the parking lots. With license plate recognition, you can make parking places more accessible and payment more automatic, increasing the driver’s experience and vehicle flow.

2. Use Surveillance Systems to Ensure Traffic Safety

Network camera solutions may also be utilized as automatic incident detectors, recognizing events in seconds and providing actionable real-time traffic data to operations.

High-quality video footage may be used to assess the situation and take necessary action. The video can also be used as evidence in forensic investigations to prevent future instances.

With limited resources and traffic everywhere, preventing and responding to traffic offenses may be difficult and time-consuming.

Network cameras combined with edge analytics may identify a wide range of breaches. Together with license plate identification, the technology can automatically trigger fines or warnings for more efficient safety measures.

Get Reliable Insights for a Changing Future

Deep learning network cameras may also be employed as sensors to gather and interpret reliable data. Cameras with edge analytics can categorize and count people, cars, and objects. They can also collect data on how people move through the city and assess how traffic flows in various areas and times of the day.

These insights also help you recognize unsafe areas, such as places with a high rate of incidents or near-misses. Through this, additional safety precautions can be introduced to improve safety. 

As urban populations rise, cities will need to undergo a fast transformation, particularly in terms of transportation management. We at MEC Networks can help you adjust to shifting demands by pointing you to the right solutions and insights from Axis Communications.
