No ‘problems’ now as Qingpu gets ready for expo

Qingpu District is all set for the third China International Import Expo as the clock ticks down to the start of the event next Thursday, authorities announced yesterday.

A “grid-management” platform that relies on surveillance cameras will ensure that problems are tackled efficiently, they said. The system combines online and offline patrols.

Simple problems can be solved within 10 minutes while complicated ones could take up to an hour.

“We have developed 12 intelligent application scenarios involving garbage storage, jaywalking, and the management of vehicles, achieving closed-loop management in detection, order allocation, review and case completion,” said Qian Bin, head of the platform operations.

A traffic warning system also features in the platform via artificial intelligence and recognition technologies, officials said.

The system monitors 22 key locations such as the overpass of Zhuguang Road and nearby Metro station and parking lots and can analyze footage data. When the human or vehicle flow exceeds the limit, it will alert platform operators.

Authorities in the district where the National Exhibition and Convention Center, the expo venue, is located, have conducted patrols at tourist attractions and commercial areas regarding public sanitation, safety, epidemic prevention and control and the handling of crowds. Twelve types of problems detected at over 30 spots have been fixed.

The district has also been spruced up to create a tidy and beautiful environment for the six-day expo.

“Beautiful flower landscapes, enchanting night views and a festive atmosphere during the expo is the pursuit,” said Zhu Qi, director of the district’s greenery and public sanitation bureau.

Five new greenery landscapes have been created near the venue.
