Algorithmic video surveillance (VSA) consists of coupling surveillance cameras with software. The algorithms are supposed to be able to detect predefined events automatically and in real time.

Two tests were carried out on March 3 and 5, during concerts by the British group Depeche Mode at the Accor Arena in Paris. “Augmented” video surveillance is already being tested at the municipal level in several dozen municipalities in France, but at the national level, this is a first.
