Abu Dhabi launches new surveillance system

(Wam)

The Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (ADMCC) has announced the launch of the 'Falcon Eye' system throughout the city of Abu Dhabi, including Abu Dhabi International Airport, the main islands, and Bani Yas and Musaffah areas.

The system is a complete central system that receives a live feed from visual surveillance equipment installed across the city and displays data in an integral system that provides smart warnings and allows quick access to events and incidents. The system offers other functions and features that correspond with the needs of key ADMCC partners on the service and security levels.

Monitoring Traffic, Illegal Parking, Facilities and Buildings

The Falcon Eye system links thousands of cameras spread across the city of Abu Dhabi, as well as thousands of other cameras installed at vital facilities and buildings in the emirate, via an electronic interface based on smart analysis, and case by case warnings that call for action from relevant entities. The system will help facilitate notifications and contribute to providing an electronic method to observe events, and monitor and limit violations.

The system will help control roads by monitoring traffic violations such as the use of hard shoulders, illegal parking, and the misuse of roads, and by helping to deal with traffic accidents live.

The system will also monitor significant behaviours in the city such as public hygiene, and human assemblies in non-dedicated areas. The system will mainly be beneficial to Abu Dhabi entities concerned with traffic monitoring, and will facilitate the management of intersections to increase their efficiency and limit traffic during peak hours.  

Major General Mohammed Khalfan Al Romaithi, Commander-in-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police and ADMCC Board Chairman, said that the system was "part of the vision of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to pursue its efforts to build a confident and safe society, and a sustainable and globally open and competitive economy."

He added that its launch is based on the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the follow-up of Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, which stress the need to leverage technology and visual surveillance to increase security and safety, and facilitate the management of cities."

Saeed Saif Al Neyadi, ADMCC Director-General, said, "The continuous development the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is witnessing requires us to stay up to date with the latest global technologies and developments in this field to protect national gains and provide a suitable environment for the emirate’s progress and growth."
