Amyx+ worked with a local government authority to develop an Internet of Things-enabled public safety strategy. In the current state, vigilance meant manually scanning through potentially hundreds of analog surveillance videos feeds. Manual, costly and ineffective, the local agency desired to transition from analog to digital CCTV, apply computer vision and other technologies to automatically detect potential crime in progress, expedite and streamline emergency calls and integrate with personal wearables to ensure the safety of their citizens.
Amyx+ developed a holistic IoT strategy. Then worked with the government agency to evaluate best-in-class IP CCTV cameras, computer vision algorithms, wearables, and sound detection solutions for automated crime detection and prevention. Then identified ways to streamline the emergency call routing to minimize bureaucratic re-routing from central station to local dispatch to accelerate response time. The authority implemented a public relations initiative to help citizens become more aware of their surroundings, especially in the evening hours. Moreover, the authority educated the public about wearables devices for personal safety, including but not limited to bracelets, smart watches and other devices that could send emergency notification and messages to friends, family and the police.
