Notes to editors
AGT International's safe city offering is a central public safety system based on
our UrbanShield platform. It is empowered by advanced analytics to integrate
and analyze the constant stream of data received from different cameras,
sensors and other data sources.
UrbanShield automatically identifies abnormal behaviors, as defined and
configured by system users, creating a single view for decision-makers. It
effectively manages emergency situations and mega-events; improves
efficiency and response times; helps to solve crime more quickly; and aligns all
those in positions of authority. When an incident occurs, UrbanShield provides
pre-determined response procedures and recommendations (e.g., best routes
for evacuees and first responders; and inter-agency collaboration points).
During and following incidents, and even in the absence of an incident,
UrbanShield makes data, video records, LPR detections and other information
readily available to investigators through a simple, shared interface.
