Surveillance Cameras Will Discern Potential Criminals
‘Big Brother’ cameras designed by BRS Labs will scan all passers-by and will tell, if any of them is displaying suspicious behavior. These computerized cameras will be soon installed in a number of public places like train stations or public buildings. Using a range of in-built parameters of what is ‘normal’ the cameras will alert a human guard through a call or a message. BRS claims that each camera has a series of virtual ‘trip wires’ and if any activated then an alert is sent out to a human supervisor. The relevant clip of footage is then sent over the Internet to human employees, along with a text message informing them about the details. Its advanced features will compensate for poor light or a shaky image, further reducing the need for human supervision. The BRS Labs latest project presupposes cameras installation on the San Francisco transport system. Being able to scan 150 people at a time, these devices will scan thousands of people a day, and will be able to identify a criminal even before the criminal commits a crime.
