Cameroon launches video surveillance

An Annex facility of the National Command and Control Centre for Video Surveillance has gone operational in Douala in a move which seeks to counter the spiralling wave of urban insecurity in the Cameroon’s largest city, in part through live facial recognition.

The facility, which is the second in the country after the main one in Yaounde went live in 2019, is part of a project dubbed ‘Cameroon Intelligence Cities’.

The project aims to deploy artificial intelligence-based technologies to make life easier and more convenient for urban residents nationwide.
