Plans to install more than 400 “super intelligent” CCTV cameras in Glasgow for prevention of terrorism and suicide are underway.
With a £24m UK government grant the cameras could dub Glasgow one of Britain’s first “smart cities”.
Raising alarm when bags are left unattended or when someone climbs up on to a bridge parapet the new generation cameras will replace the existing network.
Alongside this technological development Glasgow City Council hope to develop the usage of mobile phone technology allowing residents to find the quietest city centre route or shortest hospital Accident and Emergency unit waiting times.
