CVC at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2022

The international leading event for cities is about to take place! The Smart City Expo World Congress will be held this year on November 15-17 at Fira de Barcelona.

In this edition, the Computer Vision Center (CVC) will participate as an exhibitor thanks to the support of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Our booth wants to be a meeting point to discuss the potential role that Computer Vision plays in urban innovation. We encourage companies and institutions to get in touch with us to explore possible partnership opportunities.

At the venue, you will find us at:

Smart mobility for the cities of tomorrow

We will be pleased to welcome you to our booth where you can learn more about our Computer Vision solutions for mobility management:

People and bicycles detection in pedestrian crossings:  

Our interactive technological demonstration instantly detects people (and bicycles) at pedestrian crossings. The system enables fast detection with only a single camera aiming to alert only those drivers whose vehicles are approaching the crossing area (connected cars).

Analysis of pedestrian crossing areas 

The system extracts a set of data and statistics from a video of a pedestrian crossing that helps cities manage mobility efficiently (number of people and bicycles crossing the area, the average/minimum/maximum time to cross the area, the average/minimum/maximum waiting time, etc.)

 For instance, it allows the detection of: 

 - Very crowded hours that may require police monitoring.

 - Too short crossing intervals produced by too brief traffic light time

 - Excessively long waiting times produced by a bad traffic light configuration

 - Too many bicycles indicate the need for a bicycle lane.

This solution is a use case developed by CVC within the 'FEMIoT: Connected Street Infrastructures' project. FEMIoT is a project coordinated by i2CAT and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the FEDER Operational Program of Catalonia 2014-2020, to foster collaboration and develop new projects based on the Internet of Things.

Computer Vision solutions for Smart Cities

Computer Vision plays an important role in smart cities. Being the “eyes” of the city, Computer Vision helps to understand the visual world, extracting information from images and videos. This has multiple applications in the context of cities, providing solutions in several sectors such as health, industry, mobility, culture, media and security.
