The United States government, as well as other countries, are actively working on implementing Smart Cities. While there are various use cases that are being explored for Smart Cities, such as environment monitoring, transportation, etc. using advanced technologies to improve the overall safety of inhabitants, it is also important to improve the overall security of the inhabitants. There are various standardized signaling/alerting techniques, such as signaling "SOS" or the like using physical gestures etc. that are often used to signal emergency situations. Proposed herein are techniques to utilize advanced technologies, such as Deep Fusion Video analytics, along with facial behavioral and gesture analysis techniques, to configure unique, per-user-based "Gesture to Signal Mappings" for that can be used to trigger SOS/emergency and/or other types of alerts/actions upon detecting gestures of a given user.
