Event description

Description

South Ayrshire Council (SAC) has public space camera across each of the main towns within South Ayrshire. CCTV technology is improving, but still doesn’t offer practical flexibility required to meet a range of demands that may mean cameras need deployed swiftly and securely for 12 hrs, 12 days, 12 weeks or 12 months.

SAC are keen to explore opportunities that truly agile and self-powered CCTV solutions will offer, so it can cater for current and future requirements.

SAC’s CCTV innovation Challenge is being funded by the Can Do Innovation Challenge Fund and will be administered through Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI). The SBRI initiative provides successful companies with 100% funding for R&D costs and the ability to retain and exploit intellectual property developed.

The challenge

To develop a public space CCTV camera solution that can be redeployed to virtually any location, in the least resource intensive manner possible, and be able to operate where no traditional power supply exists. Image quality must be fit for purpose for public space CCTV and relayed to SAC’s control room staff, and the camera should be ‘future-proofed’ to facilitate multiple transmission methods.

A key aspect to the challenge is how to get a public space camera ‘up there’ (and make sure it stays there) without reliance on vehicles with aerial platforms or specialist operatives.
