    Mati Kochavi, CEO of AGT International, Announces UrbanShield Enhancements


    AGT International announced a number of enhancements for their UrbanShield platform at the Global Security Asia Conference in Singapore.


    Mati Kochavi, CEO of AGT International, said: “Our UrbanShield public safety and security platform was designed to provide the foundation for the integrated cities of the future, such as Singapore. Our latest enhancements within UrbanShield 5.0 raise the bar for Safe City solutions globally. By developing leading-edge information and communications technologies and deploying proven solutions that enable safer, as well as smarter cities, we make the critical infrastructure and services of a city more aware, more interactive, and more efficient. ”


    The latest release of UrbanShield builds on earlier versions of the software that provide city authorities and law enforcement officials with a single, holistic situational awareness picture of what is happening in their city, enabling them to evaluate the current situation in real-time; simulate outcomes of possible actions; potentially predict incidents before they occur; prepare for various contingencies; and mitigate loss and damage when incidents do occur by managing them as effectively as possible.


    UrbanShield 5.0 delivers new advanced analytics, such as facial recognition and automated vehicle tracking, that unlock the hidden value in big data and transform it into business intelligence. AGT International's vehicle tracking capability, the result of innovative work by its R&D research team in Germany, is the first to successfully automate the complexities of tracking moving vehicles in real time via large camera networks. It enables operators to respond faster to threats and accelerates investigations.


    UrbanShield 5.0 also includes new features supporting the city cloud concept where everything in the city is interconnected into an omnipotent safety system. Its enhanced integration, with more legacy and video management systems, makes it the optimal open platform for city operations management systems and improved investigation capabilities enable faster and easier crime solving.
