Artificial Intelligence-assisted police patrol manager


The Policia de la Generalitat de Catalunya – Mossos d’Esquadra is the integral police force of Catalonia with competences throughout the territory that carries out the functions of citizen security, administrative police, judicial police, intervention, and community policing.

In September 2023, UPC and Mossos d’Esquadra signed a collaboration framework agreement to jointly carry out scientific and technological research and innovation projects through inLab FIB in areas such as data science, intelligent mobility or cybersecurity.

Within the framework of this agreement, inLab FIB has developed in collaboration with the Mossos d’Esquadra the proof of concept of an assistance tool for police response to everyday incidents based on artificial intelligence.

The proof of concept developed provides an artificial intelligence system for the dynamic assignment of routes to police vehicles, and for the real-time coverage of incidents attending in a real and scheduled planning of points of police interest in order to meet the response time provided in the charter of services of the Policia de la Generalitat de Catalunya – Mossos d’Esquadra.

The result of this proof of concept is automatic route planning for each police vehicle on an incident-by-incident basis, which can be directly controlled by the room manager. The system incorporates an incident management support tool that makes it possible to dynamically and automatically recalculate the new routes resulting from the needs derived from the coverage of these incidents. The solution also provides a 3D visualization of the routes and vehicles involved.

This tool has been shown at the police stand at the Mobile Word Congress 2024.
