Viisights, Inc., a developer of innovative behavioural recognition systems for real-time video intelligence, has been chosen by the city of León, Mexico to improve city safety, security and help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. It has been applied to existing video feeds in one of the most populous cities in the country by national integrator MER Group Mexico.
The group’s Smart M platform will be installed in the police C4 integrated with Viisights systems, this will then be leveraged to identify suspicious behaviour, violent activity, weapon detection, crowd behaviours, perimeter protection, traffic monitoring, and environmental changes such as smoke or fire. The newly applied technology will help to increase public security and safety, allow for faster responses to violent and suspicious activities, and improve traffic control and crowd behaviour throughout the city.
“We’re proud to help improve the lives of citizens in yet another city with our innovative behavioural analytics technology,” said Asaf Birenzvieg, CEO of Viisights. ”Our mission has always been to improve safety by providing valuable, actionable information, and the city of León will no doubt be a better place to live as a result.”
Viisights’ advanced behavioural analytics technology, powered by neural networks, is offered as being able to differentiate between human behaviours like hugging and fighting, and even determine if face coverings are being worn with what the company terms as “astounding accuracy”.
“We will be implementing Viisights intelligent behavioural analytics on hundreds of existing cameras already deployed across the city, which will be relayed to the Smart-M platform installed in Leon’s C4” said Segev Hostik, Mer Group Mexico CEO. “The ability to add such an innovative analytics solution capable of automatically detecting potential threats and emergencies to existing video infrastructure provides tremendous security, safety and cost advantages while enabling the city of León to leverage prior investments in surveillance technologies.”
Viisights behavioural recognition technology is optimised to minimize false alerts and their related costs while maximizing safety and security, providing a new level of video intelligence for predictive analysis, incident prevention, response management, and risk mitigation. By only analysing general behaviour patterns of individuals, groups, vehicles, and traffic-flows, Viisights technology does not identify faces or license plates to protect personal privacy.
