In this report we explore the current hardware technologies capable of providing computer vision based monitoring and potential incident detection in urban environments. The required system should be able to distinguish between different moving entities (pedestrian, cyclist, vehicle) as well as detect and log interactions and potential conflicts within a shared space. We investigate a variety of options for such a system, including COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf), leading industrial research as well as flexible platforms currently under development for other urban sensor projects. After the introduction in Section 1 we will detail these options in Section 2. In Section 3 we case study the different technologies by considering some potential deployment locations within the city of Bristol, taking into account the detection requirements for those sites, before providing conclusions and recommendations in Section 4.
