Increasing Urbanization across the Globe to Create New Opportunities
The UN Department of Social and Economic Affairs (DESA) estimates that by 2050, roughly 68% of the world’s population will reside in urban areas. Urban agglomerations typically exert pressure on public safety and infrastructure, necessitating adoption of efficien Security Solutions to ensure orderly conduct of urban activities.
Technological advancements in surveillance systems powered by tools such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) can prove highly effective in monitoring public life in urban spaces, especially when cities worldwide are transitioning into smart cities. For example, the Ministry of Home Affairs in India granted permission to the Delhi Traffic Police to install an intelligent traffic management system (ITMS) to regulate traffic using AI-powered radar-based monitoring. The automation of traffic signals enabled by this system will aid the police to analyze data and manage traffic accordingly.
