Spain’s coronavirus state of emergency came to an end on 21 June after nearly 100 days, meaning locals and tourists alike can now enjoy the country’s beaches as long as social distancing measures are strictly followed.

During the presentation, Bruno Vilarasau showed that “with these actions, Telefónica reinforces its commitment to be one of the leading players in the market for new technologies for companies and public administrations in their digital transformation process, both from the point of view from an internal and organizational point of view, as well as the services they offer their clients. ”

For his part, Jaume Dulsat highlighted how “within the entire plan of measures adopted to make Lloret de Mar a safe tourist destination, the installation of this capacity control system on our beaches in Lloret and Fenals is crucial” and added the importance to “have a system that aims prevention through information and that will allow the City Council to inform citizens and tourists in real time of the occupation of the beaches”. beach overcrowding system

The Occupation Control system works through a video surveillance system using IP cameras with 4G connectivity and equipped with powerful software. These cameras detect which zones are being occupied and which are free and calculates the percentage of occupation in real time. Furthermore, this solution may be complemented in the future with a system for counting people at beach accesses, improving the reliability of the current system and combining data on the percentage of occupation of the space with data on the capacity of people.

The protocol established for the opening of beaches recommends to the authorities (town halls, coasts, autonomous communities) to determine the capacity of bathers and to set the maximum number of people who can go to the facilities in a group.

With this Telefónica solution, the Lloret de Mar City Council will be able to control, in a simple and effective way, the occupation of its beaches through cameras that capture frames of the area. The installed software does not record images and does not store any personal data, it will only detect the areas of the space that are occupied and which are free. 

From the user control panel, a map shows all the points of the beach area and allows viewing both that area, its occupancy percentage, its current capacity and the maximum allowed for that location. In addition, alerts can be configured on the mobile phone of those responsible for monitoring the capacity. beach overcrowding system

This occupancy control system has high reliability thanks to the cameras equipped with powerful software with intelligence and artificial vision through a neural network.
