Challenge / Goal
Navi Mumbai is a planned township established to handle the population overflow from the overcrowded and ever-growing city of Mumbai. The new city experienced fast growth of its own, with a population currently exceeding 1 million, and has its own airport and major transportation hubs. CIDCO (City and Industrial Development Corporation), is the agency established for developing and managing the new city. It carried the big task of planning Navi Mumbai in an area previously covering almost 100 villages, deploying modern technology and planning without consideration of legacy infrastructure.
Navi Mumbai wanted to ensure the safety and security of its citizens and fully leverage the opportunity to design a ground-up solution that would enable this and support efficient city operations. This would require a very robust and centralised solution that could handle everything from monitoring traffic and key utility infrastructure, through to emergency responses for catastrophic events. And as a growing and continuously developing township, the solution needed to be able to significantly scale without disruption.
At Navi Mumbai’s central command center, the Qognify Safe City solution provides a unified, operational view of the city by integrating all the components of the solution, including third-party systems and sensors. The solution monitors every entry and exit point of the city, toll points, traffic junctions, accident prone road sections, subway and railway stations, schools, key residential areas, open markets, and critical utility infrastructure areas such as electrical substations and the main water supply lines and more.
Qognify’s video management solution provides high quality video feeds and smart integration with video analytics solutions that enable the immediate detection and extraction of security and safety incidents from surveillance cameras throughout the city. This integration enables the triggering of real-time, automatic alerts of incidents in Situator, that in turn, generates the appropriate operating procedure and response plan for the operators to act upon.
The solution also provides advanced collaboration capabilities for field personnel who are able to send real time images as well as videos to the control room with the type of the incident at hand and the GIS coordinates of the field respondents.
