A watchful eye on wildlife from above

Space technologies have the potential to transform scientific project back on Earth. As a member of the European Commissions’ EO4wildlife project, Atos is designing and developing a platform that will enable scientists around the world to analyse wildlife movements using the Sentinel satellites’ observation data of the European Union’s Copernicus program to support projects to study the habitat of various migrating animals. These earth observation satellites are generating unprecedented volumes of data. To maximize the value of these terabytes of information, the scientific and research community needs to be able to integrate this data into their studies.

Keeping city streets safe by night

In an award-winning project in the Dutch city of Eindhoven, Atos and his partners are using the power of Big Data technology to increase the safety of streets by night. In the CityPulse pilot project, which we developed with partners including the Dutch Institute of Safety and Security (DITSS) and Intel, data is collected from cameras and microphones in the bustling street of Stratumseind and from social media sources. When put together and combined with Big Data analytics, this information provides a powerful and accurate picture of what is happening on the ground, almost in real time. As a result, local authorities can respond to any situations as they develop and can prevent incidents from escalating. If an incident occurs, the system alerts a response team who will take appropriate actions.
