CCTV ‘fightcams’ detect violence ‘before it happens’ – Telegraph

CCTV ‘fightcams’ detect violence ‘before it happens’ – Telegraph.

The new CCTV system is reminiscent of science fiction movies such as Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report, in which Tom Cruise plays a police officer in a “pre-crime” unit which arrests criminals before they offend.

The ground-breaking surveillance cameras use sophisticated technology to analyse how crowds are moving in public, triggering an alert when fists begin to fly.

Police said it could help them detect crime “before it happens”. The million-pound project to develop the smart cameras is believed to be a world first in using CCTV to analyse people’s behaviour in public.
