City monitoring cameras are developing technologically every day. China, which draws attention with the system it has established in this area, has developed a full 500 MP camera that can distinguish the faces of tens of thousands of people walking on the street.
London had the best city cameras in the world for years, but now there are cities that surpass London’s cameras. China has recently added to its city-camera updates to its breakthroughs in security. The cameras in Beijing and Chongging City have placed London in third place. These cameras in China, not physically abundant, reached the peak with their current resolution.
For the first time shown at the China International Industrial Fair last week, scientists said the camera is capable of capturing hundreds of details in an environment of tens of thousands of people. This camera system uses cloud storage and has a full 500 MP resolution.
It can take 5 times more detailed images than the human eye:
The camera system was designed by Fudan University and the Changchun Optical, Fine Mechanics and Physics Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The developers said that the resolution of the camera is kat 5 times more detailed than the human eye, and that they are equipped with artificial intelligence, face recognition, real-time monitoring and cloud computing technology.
The purpose of this camera is obviously public surveillance. It is debatable how secure the system will be to make it easier for suspects to be found in any event of social outrage. Leaving aside the potential security issues, one of the main problems is the large size of these recorded images. Even the pictures taken with the 500 MP will be very large, while the videos taken with these cameras are of great interest to the cloud.
Like all city camera systems, this camera system is greeted by people in two different ways. Some believe this camera system will be very useful for public security, while others say it will infringe privacy and is unreliable. Unlike the two perspectives, this is a surprising technical achievement.
