The drone that will count the number of bathers this summer on the beach of Peñíscola in the Spanish Mediterranean

Castelló (Spain) / The Peñíscola City Council will use a drone with Artificial Intelligence technology to control the capacity on the beaches through video surveillance, alert and deter those who fail to comply with distance measures and do emergency work, as they can launch a life jacket in the event of a possible drowning.

According to municipal sources, the Tourism and Beaches area has presented this Wednesday the drone service to control capacity on the city’s beaches, which will be carried out in collaboration with the company General Drons.

“This device incorporates artificial intelligence by which it is able to count bathers and identify areas with higher density than recommended,” explained the head of the company that manages the service, Adrián Plaza.

The drone and its pilot will collaborate closely with the Local Police and the life-saving and rescue team, as well as with the team of beach informants that will be activated during the months in which the greatest occupation is expected.

The bather won’t even appreciate the device

The system allows you to fly over the beach at a distance in which the bather does not even appreciate the device, which is also very quiet and with the AI ​​that it incorporates you can calculate if the number of people occupying the beach is adequate according to the recommendations of the health authorities, and if this is exceeded, it communicates this in real time to the rest of the ground teams.

“Our urban beaches, the North and the South, have more than half a million square meters of sand, which allows us to house more than 25,000 people in safe conditions, respecting the distance of two meters between users,” explained the mayor. , Andrés Martínez.

This circumstance “makes us think that the average occupation of the beach will not exceed that recommended, but we have to establish and promote mechanisms that facilitate us to act quickly in order to guarantee safe vacations and beaches in our destination,” according to Martínez.

The forecast of the City Council is to have the drone service during the months of July and August, which in addition to joining the package of measures that are promoted for the control of capacity and compliance with safety standards on the beaches, is included as a substantial improvement for the rescue and life-saving service in the municipality.

The drone incorporates lifebuoys that can be quickly launched into the water and a messaging and alarm system through the public address system that the device itself incorporates. (June 4, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
