The Singapore Government realised that analytics could go beyond merely spotting existing patterns of behaviour and could in fact help it better understand, prepare for and react to future events.
By applying a centralised video analytics solution, the Government would be able to share data among agencies more easily and also deliver actionable insights for users in accordance with a wide range of requirements.
As a video analytics solution represented a major step into new technological territory, a test bed was deemed necessary to test its effectiveness.
Accenture collaborated with six Singapore Government agencies from the areas of law enforcement, transportation and the environment to pilot its Safe City Solution, supported by the Accenture Video Analytics Service Platform. The test bed involved three phases:
- Integrating the infrastructure
- Adding data analytics
- Trialling the solution
