Glasgow Operations Centre is a state-of-the-art integrated traffic and public safety management system, created with the aid of the Innovate UK funding. The new centre brings together Public Space CCTV, security for the city council’s museums and art galleries, Traffic Management and Police Intelligence.
The facility has the capability to provide a co-ordinated, real-time, intelligence-led, response to incidents large and small across the city, placing Glasgow at the leading edge of smart city management.
Video analytics is a pivotal tool used as an additional intelligence source. This emerging technology provides Operations Centre operators with alerts as situations and events unfold. Resulting in improved, more informed, decision-making, earlier intervention and reaction to events.
Promoting a safer and sustainable environment, intelligence from the Operations Centre will be managed and mapped to monitor and measure a range of indicators showing its impact and value on behalf of Glasgow’s residents, businesses, visitors and stakeholders.
