Smart, AI-powered operations at Expo 2020 Dubai
Mega events involving hundreds of thousands of people demands extraordinary planning, precautions, and complex operations to ensure that those in attendance have a safe, secure, and enjoyable experience. In that sense, Expo 2020 Dubai served as a model for operational excellence in the post pandemic world.
CHALLENGE / OPPORTUNITY
1. Managing the Security and Operations of the mega event for a crowd of 24 million visitors.
2. Installing and commissioning AI-enabled physical security equipment and integrating them to create a unified, holistic security solution to achieve 100% security.
We enabled the provision of AI-enabled monitoring technology for Expo 2020 Dubai with more than 12,000 CCTV cameras installed over an area of 4.38 square kilometers
• Monitoring of aspects of more than 150,000 daily visitors
• 8,500 tracking devices
• 137 metal detectors
• 130 x-ray machines
We implemented three solutions:
• Video Analytics: A cloud-based video analytics platform that utilizes advanced AI to provide real-time insights and situation analysis and connect with operations and security teams
• Screening Services: Utilized x-rays tray return systems, metal detectors and electronic trace detectors to prevent the entry of forbidden items
• Vehicle Access Management (VAM): Secured all entry and exit points, utilizing intelligent automation and management of car access and parking operations
Using our video management and real-time stream analytics to process and analyze volumes of video data and information, we were able to alert and raise alarms for behavioral threats and risk scenarios defined by Expo 2020 Dubai.
Over 10,000 vehicles and delivery trucks entered and exited the Expo campus. VAM was integrated with multiple government modules such as the Vehicle and Driver Accreditation system.
We successfully helped and worked with UAE government entities such as Dubai Police and Expo 2020 Dubai security officials to protect millions of visitors.
