The city of Eilat, Israel has implemented viisights' behavioral recognition system to detect, predict and analyze events of interests in real-time and alert authorities of crowding, violent/suspicious activity, traffic or crowd congestion, and more.
Deployment of the behavioral analytics solution has been fast-tracked in preparation for a large number of tourists who typically flood the city during the Passover and upcoming holiday season.
The viisights behavioral analytics are integrated into the city’s existing surveillance system, which includes more than 300 cameras that are monitored at a centrally located command and control center. The behavioral analytics can monitor hundreds of cameras in real-time, and upon recognition or prediction of unusual behavior a command center operator receives an immediate alert and can notify the authorities.
Avinoam Nahari, Director of the city’s information methods and systems division in charge of the project, stated that the solution enables the city to quickly and efficiently address abnormal events for the benefit of its residents and visitors’ safety and security.
Eilat deployed the viisights solution to autonomously increase situational awareness and generate alerts on events of interest such as crowding events in areas and locations where COVID-19 guidelines are not being followed, predicting gatherings by monitoring traffic and people’s movement towards a certain location, and more.
