Video Analytics Surveillance System in Marine Parks and Marine Reserve for Law Enforcement

Title of I&T Wish Video Analytics Surveillance System in Marine Parks and Marine Reserve for Law Enforcement
(REF : W-0155)
Project Summary and Challenges

Objective:
To develop a system that integrates day-and-night camera, artificial intelligence, video analytic and other advance technologies to collect and analyse data on the activities in marine parks and marine reserve, aiming to identify black spots of illegal activities and to enhance resource deployment efficiency for law enforcement.

Challenges:
1) Outdoor environment – the system would be exposed to seawater splash, sunlight and adverse weather condition
2) Long range/ Wide coverage – the system should be able to monitor activities with good resolution at a distance up to 2-3 kilometres / at an angle up to 360 degrees (subject to the requirement in marine parks and marine reserve), the zoom-in function shall also be provided, in order to recognize particular objects such as the license number of vessels.
3) Round-the-clock – the system should be able to monitor both day and night activities continuously
4) Remote site – the system would operate at sites with no / limited network coverage and power supply
5) Security – the system should be well protected from damages in the natural environment, theft and information leakage, and it may contain personal or privacy matters.

Expected Outcome This project aims to develop a video analytic-based system to monitor activities (especially those by vessels) in Marine Parks and Marine Reserve.
Expected Project Duration The project shall be completed within two years.
