P-REACT a low cost solution for Petty Crime prevention

The P-REACT solution focuses on connecting citizens, business owners, infrastructure owners and security and law enforcement personnel so that Petty Crime incidents can be effectively dealt with and prevented in the future, whilst ensuring compliance to legal, ethical and societal concerns.

Petty Crime incidents such as theft, criminal damage and anti-social behaviour are on the rise in Europe due to the economic crisis and in turn incidents adversely impact the local socioeconomic environment. The P-REACT project developed a low cost surveillance platform to detect Petty Crime incidents encompassing intelligent video and audio sensors, a cloud based monitoring, alert detection and storage platform. Technology trends in computer vision, motion detection, video retrieval, semantic video analysis and cloud technology are exploited.

The final P-REACT project review meeting took place during the 9th and 10th of June in Athens during which the consortium prepared a live demo involving the detection of events such as fighting, bag snatching, screaming, glass breaking, graffiti, intrusion (break in) and running (chasing).

The P-REACT consortium is comprised of 7 partners: 2 research/academic institutes (VICOM, CERTH), 3 SMEs (ADITESS, FINT, KINESENSE) and 2 end users (KEMEA, SRM).
