The protection of external borders is becoming an essential issue for the European Union, given the current political context that involves the migration crisis and drugs or illegal substances smuggling. Given the large area that has to be covered in order to address these concerns, the development of an AI-based solution becomes an absolute necessity. This solution must integrate data from a large number of different types of sensors and inputs and must make aggregated decisions or suggestions for human operators in order to provide an efficient tool for border monitoring. This type of solution does not only address border scenarios, but can also be applied to the surveillance of logistics buildings, security perimeters and large industrial buildings.
