Let’s rethink city living: Connected video technology for safe cities

Posted: 19 April 2022 | | No comments yet

In this eBook, Milestone Systems explores how video technology can help cities to achieve safety, mobility and sustainability.

Today, 55 per cent of the world’s population live in urban areas. This will increase to a jaw-dropping 70 per cent by 2050. This explosive growth in population will continue to challenge city living – with immense pressure on infrastructures, increased risk of crime and more pollution.

But these challenges can be overcome if governments, policy makers, urban planners and security operators realise what’s possible with smart video technology. As a starting point, we must turn to digital tools, data and intelligent video technology to successfully address these issues — and to not just react to incidents and trends but anticipate and prevent them, as well. It’s time to make the most of smart video technology to create a better urban life for all — with cleaner urban areas, well-functioning infrastructure and all-round safer environments. It’s time for us all to rethink city living.
