Gold Coast Calls In Smart Camera
The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has revealed it is planning to help the Gold Coast Waterways Authority set up a smart camera trial that can build a detailed picture of activity on Gold Coast waterways.
QUT said its research team will use advanced machine learning and statistical methods to estimate the number and types of vessels using the waterways.
It hopes to use this system – along with info on marine incidents and weather conditions – to establish waterway trends and provide insight into future patterns of the use and pressure points.
The uni team also hopes to develop a more accurate way of measuring vessel speed on the water.
“We’ll be using the cameras to create a more complete picture of who is using the waterways, where they’re going, what type of vessel or watercraft they’re travelling in, and how they’re interacting with other users and the environment,” GCWA CEO Hal Morris told ZDnet.”
