WeAreClouds@Lucca carries out research and development in the field of monitoring public places, such as squares and streets, through cameras and microphones and using artificial intelligence technologies, in order to collect useful information both for the evaluation of tourist flows and their impact on the city and for the purpose of automatic identification of particular events of interest for statistical or security purposes. The research activity develops artificial intelligence technologies for the analysis of video streams and audio signals capable of providing information on the number of people present, their age, gender, acoustic impact, on the flows of people and on the identification of specific events. The technologies developed, starting from those already in the possession of ISTI-CNR researchers, will be adapted to the particular needs of the Municipality of Lucca. The experimental activity is based on the use of cameras and microphones already present in the historic center of Lucca and commonly used for surveillance.
