Audio analytics is a new trend of Safe City

calendar21 November 2019

The introduction of audio analytics technologies is a new trend that is spreading to various areas of Ukrainian business. This level of interest is connected with the list of advantages: absence of “blind” zones, invisibility of microphones, work in the dark, cheap equipment and its maintenance, less archiving costs compared to video.

Audio content analysis has a centuries-old history and dates back to World War I, when it was used to alert about aircraft. Today, common areas of technology application are the detection of the pattern of events: aggression, shooting, screams for help, crying, alarms, breaking glass and more. Such solutions have already proven effective in major cities in the United States, United Kingdom, and Brazil.

Audio analytics solutions can be used not only for security purposes but also for optimizing traffic flows. For example, when you hear the sound of a car siren approaching, the traffic light system can be adjusted to let the special vehicle pass without delay.

Natural language processing technologies used for voice identification, evaluating of customer satisfaction, and personnel control have also become widespread.
