HK government tech lab rolls out mobile surveillance system

A tech company under the Hong Kong Smart Government Innovation Lab recently announced that it has launched a new solution which is now ready to be acquired by companies and institutions.

Solution description

The incubatee’s Mobile Surveillance System is designed for the automation of security and minimisation of human resources. Rapid deployment can be scheduled to the user’s needs, and customisation is available for emergency monitoring and controlling.

With its high mobility and easy installation, operating 24 hours a day, it is available anytime and anywhere. Information from real-time monitoring appears on the tech firm’s AI Video Analytics software feed that is equipped in its Mobile Surveillance Systems.

This state-of-the-art software filters out important information via deep learning, aiding in the process of target investigation. The technical capability is designed for data collection, analysis by IoT, AI, and Big Data technology.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied across various areas including City Management, Commerce and Industry, Environment as well as Housing.

Technologies Used

The solution employs Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Analytics, Deep Learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and Video Analytics.

Use case

  1. Illegal Dumping Prevention: illegal dumping of industrial and domestic waste at over 80 danger-prone areas all over HK; Illegal bird-feeding.
    Application Purpose: Collect evidence for prosecution; Use Deep-learning AI to detect the illegal dumping acts and give alert; recording footage of the vehicle used, people involved, and dumping patterns, captured the relevant video into the database.
  2. Rodent Monitoring
    Application Purpose: prevention and control of rodents; rapidly deploy thermal imaging system to detect, count, and analyse rat population sizes and activities. After gathering the result, action can be taken.

Growing demand for automation

Digital process automation solutions and services offer crucial benefits to enterprises. These benefits include lowering inevitable losses, creating new opportunities, saving costs, and increasing the efficiency of business processes. The increasing demand for automation and the growing adoption of low code automation platform is expected to drive the growth of the digital process automation market.

The market also faces challenges such as compatibility issues with existing business process applications and services. The major factor that is said to be restraining the growth of the digital process automation market is data security and privacy issue as process automation deals with personal data of an individual. Various opportunities present in this market include increasing demand for streamlining business processes and integration of AI and ML.

The global digital process automation market is projected to grow from US$6.77 billion in 2018 to US$12.61 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2018 to 2023.

The market size in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The digital process automation market is expected to grow considerably in APAC, due to the shift in the thought process of enterprises, from reducing operational costs to providing an enhanced customer experience.
