Video management platforms, equipped with technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, are vastly expanding capabilities in the area of urban surveillance and public safety, according to research. The Covid-19 pandemic has spurred the use of technologies, such as crowd monitoring, which ABI Research believes are here to stay. It adds that other developments in urban surveillance from live video feeds to bodycams, will be assisted by the introduction of 5G. In its report, Urban Surveillance Technologies and Public Safety Strategies, global technology intelligence firm, ABI Research, forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 11.6 per cent with 1.4 billion closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance cameras in urban areas worldwide in 2030. "Currently, the main use of CCTV in public safety is to aid authorities to solve crimes retroactively," said Lindsey Vest, smart cities and smart spaces research analyst at ABI Research.
