Increasing concerns over public safety have meant that video surveillance applications are growing fast.
In particular, public transport systems like trains and metro systems can now take advantage of the latest technologies and industry standards. Surveillance systems play an important role in reassuring and protecting the public, but by far the most common video surveillance applications in trains are for crime/vandalism prevention and accident investigation. Video surveillance plays its part by preventing crime and keeping mishaps from becoming tragedies. The challenge for today’s transportation system integrators developing video surveillance solutions for trains is designing solutions that don’t rely on dedicated power outlets, can accommodate existing technology, yet still be robust enough to meet the rigors and vibration of trains speeding along steel tracks and through tunnels.
