Privacy Notes

1: These sensors do not have the capability to measure or identify individuals.

2: Microphones and cameras in public spaces do not collect sensitive personally identifiable information (PII). Microphone and camera images will be processed in near-real-time within the installed equipment, not transmitted or stored, with the exception of less than 1% of images at random times, saved for the purposes of image processing software calibration. Although these images will not contain PII, they will be controlled and protected with the same measures typically afforded PII. For more information and detail, please see the Privacy Policy.

3: During the 2016-2017 pilot period, the cameras will be used for the purposes of detecting and publishing (a) count/flow of pedestrians, (b) count and flow of various vehicle types, and (c) extent to which road surface is covered with standing water (flooding). This list will be updated prior to publishing new types of data from images.
