Developer of behavioural recognition systems for real-time video intelligence, viisights has deployed a new installation in the city of Eilat, Israel. The new installation is set to detect, predict and analyse events of interests in real-time and alert authorities of crowding, violent/suspicious activity, traffic or crowd congestion.
Deployment of the unique behavioural analytics solution was fast-tracked in preparation for the large number of tourists who typically flood the city during the Passover and upcoming holiday season. viisights can now monitor hundreds of cameras in real-time, and upon recognition or prediction of unusual behaviour a command centre operator receives an immediate alert and can notify the authorities.
Eilat is the first city in Israel to advance Israel’s smart city “City without Violence” initiative. Avinoam Nahari, Director of the city’s information methods and systems division in charge of the project, stated that the viisights behavioral analytics solution enables the city to quickly and efficiently address abnormal events for the benefit of its residents and visitors’ safety and security.
Eli Lankri, Deputy and Acting Mayor of Eilat leading the Israel’s Smart City program said, “As a city that ranks high in Israel’s smart cities index, we’re proud of this innovative system which will enable us to maintain the public’s safety and security, and its health under the current COVID-19 pandemic.”
Asaf Birenzvieg, viisights CEO added, “We’re proud to take part in this national effort and provide a critical component of the “City without Violence” project to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and get life back on track while maintaining the COVID-19 guidelines. Given Eilat’s status as one of Israel’s most popular tourism cities, we are extremely proud to be part of this national effort.”
