REAL-TIME BEACH OCCUPANCY MONITORING

REAL-TIME BEACH OCCUPANCY MONITORING

SUMMARY

Tourism is one of the main economic drivers in Spain. Although it has been highly disrupted due to the global pandemic, with certain measures in place, people may start enjoying some of the usual holiday activities, including spending time at the beach. The number of people allowed on public beaches is strictly limited. Technological solutions need to be implemented to monitor the capacity and busyness of each beach in real-time to ensure safety and inform the public for better planning.

CHALLENGE

To ensure that distance requirements are met, only a certain number of citizens can spend time at the beach at the same time. Smart technologies are required to facilitate counting and communication to the public to avoid queues. However, the internet connection is often not present at public beaches, especially if they are in more remote areas, away from the city. For this reason, wired connectivity is not an option and a reliable cellular router is a better choice. Being stored outside, the device needs to be sturdy enough and sustain the challenge of changing temperatures and humidity.

SOLUTION

Several sensors and cameras are installed to count the number of people at the beach. These devices are connected to the RUT950 dual-SIM cellular router providing connectivity to the solution. The collected information is sent to the Public Monitoring Center and further communicated through various channels. A digital signage screen shows the occupancy rates at the entrance. It also informs about the busyness of nearby beaches. A speaker is connected to the solution to communicate important announcements and the traffic is managed by a traffic light. Whenever the maximum capacity is reached, it turns red and no more people are allowed to enter.

The same information is also sent to another important piece of the solution - the mobile app. It allows for people to check the information before their trip and avoid queues by choosing the beach according to availability in real-time. This way two major goals are achieved - the safety of the public and at least partial revival of tourism, which has been greatly affected by the pandemic.
