PMUC joins effort with police to promote smart cities, fighting crime.

Pilot project for the use of AI Security Platform system to demonstrate digital artificial intelligence application in license plate detection, face detection, object tracking, target search, targeted behavior search, with a high resolution display system. A sandbox area for demonstration was organized at the Royal Police Cadet Academy, Sam Phran.

December 9, 2022: Program Management Unit for Competitiveness (PMUC). The Global Partnership Program organized a workshop summarizing the results of the AI Security Platform pilot program conducted under a cooperative agreement in research and development of 5G innovations and artificial intelligence (AI) systems for police work. The technology being tested was an AI innovation for use in license plate detection, face detection, tracking of suspicious objects or interested targeted behaviors, through the CCTV system designed to be able to track and analyze objects and display them on the map in high resolution, including searching for information from the database and sharing it remotely with real-time aleart via the 5G system. The AI Security system will increase the efficiency of security and crime prevention programs and track down criminals quickly. It is considered a test of the performance of the AI Security system within the sandbox area of the Royal Thai Police. It is another one of many project that support the implementation of policy and guidelines for the ultimate safety of the metro cities, which is part of the “Smart Safety Zone 4.0” project of the Royal Thai Police.

PMUC, led by Jeong Hyop Lee, Ph.D, senior consultant for PMUC, together with Asst. Prof. Wanarat Santiamorntat, Ph.D., chairman of the Digital Platform Subcommittee, PMUC, as well as Point IT Consulting, Co., Ltd., FATOS Inc. and InnoDep Inc. participated in the workshop to test the efficiency of the Smart Security system, with Maj. Gen. Amnat Dechboonlueang, Commander of the Police Training Center, Police Cadet Academy, serving as the chairman of the meeting and giving the opening speech, stating that “this Smart Innovation Demonstration Workshop is a result of a cooperation between South Korea and Thailand in Smart Security Systems, made official by a Memorandum of Cooperation between Police Cadet Academy and Prince of Songkla University (PSU) on August 18, 2022. It is considered an important starting point for research and development of artificial intelligence digital innovations based on the 5G communication platform for use in police missions, with sharing of knowledge base and transfer of technology and leveraging combined system know-how between each other. It is a demonstration of connecting a new system with an existing system of the Royal Police Cadet Academy in real-life conditions.

Global Partnership Program with promoted cooperation in transferring technology with foreign countries, to further leverage digital innovation, artificial intelligence, and security monitoring system for the Thai people.

The AI Security Platform system was developed under the “Cooperation Development Project for an Innovative Smart City”, which was a joint effort between South Korea and Thailand In the field of intelligent systems for security” with research funding from PMUC, specifically the Global Partnership Program, in collaboration with Point IT Consulting Co., Ltd., to raise the level of crime prevention and public security for the country, with Asst. Prof. Wannarat Santiamornthat, Ph.D., Digital Research and Innovation Institute, Research and Development Office, Prince of Songkla University, serving as the project leader. The objective is to create cooperation between South Korea and Thailand in bringing Thai innovations to the Southeast Asian market. There is a network of cooperation among SME startups in the field of smart CCTV for Smart City of Thailand. This cooperation resulted in the transfer of innovations such as the innovative real-time display of Object Tracking, the AI Edge Computing system built into the CCTV camera units to increase processing efficiency. and thus created a way to do business together, such as the CDP (Customer Data Sharing) system, Phatthana Muang Group, and the Smart City Alliance of Thailand.

Asst. Prof. Wannarat said that the AI Security Platform system received funding from the PMUC to develop MAP technology in collaboration with Korea to connect the operating systems and undergo a pilot application with the police or the homeland security department. In addition, the platform is being prepared to enter the ASEAN market, with Fatos, a large geographic service company in South Korea, and Innodept, a South Korean security systems provider, partnering with Point IT Consulting.

The AI Security Platform system used in the sandbox area at the Samphran Police Cadet Academy is the local platform system at the smallest and most basic level of the National AI Security Platform architecture, which means it can only support a maximum of 1,000 CCTV cameras, which can be connected to the central command center designed to be able to transfer data easily. and reduce the risk of data loss and equipment damage. This is a model of a regional operating system distribution that can centralize connections and data transmission. Moreover, this system is able to process, analyze and display data that can be leveraged for investigative work. It can be considered as a guideline for the development of the National Artificial Intelligence Action Plan or ‘National AI Plan’.
