Outdoor Surveillance in a Post-COVID World

 

As smart technology advances by leaps and bounds, the benefits that outdoor surveillance can provide cities are virtually limitless.

In fact, places like Singapore and Tokyo have already begun using outdoor surveillance technology to great effect.

To get a better understanding of the state of the industry today, Tyler Kern invited Felisa Chuang, Product Manager, RF, Antennas at TE Connectivity, onto the Connected World podcast. She has been with the company for 13 years and has seen the market progress from WiFi to 3G, 4G, and, finally, 5G.

“5G capabilities make smarter technology more accessible and open new market opportunities for the Internet of Things, such as outdoor surveillance, physical security and traffic control,” Chuang said. Advancements in 5G will also “offer faster data transmission and the ability to connect significantly more devices at once,” allowing cities to dive deeper into smart city changes and outdoor surveillance.

Outdoor surveillance technology is predicted to have an increasingly larger role as time goes on. Last year, companies sold 2.5 million units of outdoor surveillance technology. Sales are expected to gross 6.2 million units this year and 11.2 million next year, reflecting a staggering rate of growth.

However, engineers have a few obstacles to overcome before outdoor surveillance can become a widespread phenomenon. The biggest one? Durability

“Outdoor surveillance is outside, so the biggest factor [to consider] is durability in a harsh environment. We need to be able to design components that can withstand harsh weather, temperatures, humidity and UV light,” Chuang noted.
