Will we see you at Smart City World Expo 2017?

Andrea Sorri

As part of our smart city initiative, we are helping cities fulfil their promise of creating safer, more mobile everyday environments. To demonstrate what is possible, we’ll be showcasing cutting edge smart city solutions at this year’s Smart City World Expo, 14-16 November, in Barcelona.

Improving safety and security

A key part of the smart city concept is that of a safe city, where authorities strive to reduce crime rates and make citizens feel secure. Smart cities use cameras, sensors and other connected technology to increase liveability and improve the management of the city’s assets to make sure they are protected.

Return on safety investments

The Axis video solutions we’ll be displaying at the Expo provide clear return on safety investments, turning reactive forensics into proactive real-time security. Axis cameras , combined with our partners’ expertise in technologies such as facial recognition and even drone detection, allows city authorities to automatically spot potential incidents and manage events as they happen. Through triggered lighting and audio or direct two-way communication, they can often deter an incident in progress. If not, they have all the information needed for a rapid response and successful investigation.

Keeping smart cities on the move

As well as safety, smart cities can use surveillance for improving the city’s mobility. Smart video solutions from Axis and our partners can improve the urban traffic flow. These solutions can swiftly detect traffic accidents or violations, as well as provide comprehensive data for improving traffic flow. The result is not only faster emergency response and better use of existing infrastructure, but also happier commuters.

A world of possibilities for smart cities

From deterring crime to reducing road congestion, Axis cameras are versatile tools that support the entire incident management chain. Detailed, high-quality video in all conditions, means Axis solutions offer the best possible platform for optimizing situational awareness and operational efficiency.
