Facial recognition CCTV cameras with advanced AI software to be rolled out across Dubai
The high-tech cameras will reportedly run AI-powered facial recognition software to allow them to identify potential criminals and will be fitted with speakers so that they are able to issue on-the-spot, verbal warnings.
“Criminal activity-related cameras will capture footage of people involved in crimes, recognise their faces and analyse the crime” Brigadier Jamal Al Muhairi, deputy director of administrative affairs at Dubai Police, told a local newspaper.
The system, that is expected to be rolled out over 2018 and 2019, will also be able to track traffic violations, thanks to license plate readers built in to the cameras.
The heavy shift towards increased security comes as Dubai expects as many as 25 million visitors to visit the city for Expo 2020.
The Facial Recognition CCTV solution supplied by CCTV Surveillance dynamically compares images of individuals from incoming video streams against those stored in a predefined access control list and immediately sends alerts when a positive match occurs.
The technology yields a very good level of performance despite partial occlusions of the face, the use of glasses, scarves or caps, changes of facial expression, and moderate rotations of the face. Moreover, it does not allow users to be impersonated using photographs.
This biometric technology is the perfect solution to control the access to restricted security areas, especially since we’re talking about a completely automated system that requires very little interaction with the operator.
Our Facial Recognition CCTV system can be easily integrated with existing ID management products and enables administrators to easily create Whitelists/Blacklists for specific areas, while subjects can be very easily enrolled from one or more photographs.
The system fully supports runtime alarm management, is highly tunable (control based on time-frames, sequentially, etc) and even allows alarms to be exported to common formats (PDF, Excel) and remote devices (mobile, PDA, tablet, security control centre).
