INDONESIA: IMPROVING PUBLIC SAFETY AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
With an estimated 16 million tourists in 2018, Bali is known as an immensely popular tourist destination. However, with most of the visitors drawn to the Badung Regency, which contains the tourist of Kuta and Seminyak, the city faced very unique security and surveillance challenges, including the heavy traffic of vehicles and pedestrians.
With such a high volume of people, law enforcement agencies have to rely on video technology to provide real-time alerts and situational awareness, with extensive camera coverage and reliable monitoring to ensure that citizens are kept safe. In this case, the use of over 550 IP-based cameras has allowed the government to take centralised control of the traffic and security in the Bali district, and better manage public safety and traffic flow.
