Escalating threats, security breaches and attacks calls for implementing the highest transit system security possible. Video surveillance is a key element in making mass transit more secure. It can also help improve operator efficiency, cut costs and enhance the overall passenger experience by reducing delays or disruptions to service from unforeseen mechanical breakdowns, track obstructions or just traffic congestion.
Hampering security system advancements are current fragmented, proprietary video surveillance technology solutions. Enabling a new generation of data driven, intelligent video surveillance is Kontron’s commercial off the shelf (COTS), application-ready transportation computing technologies. With Kontron COTS network video recorders (NVRs) and other transportation-centric platforms, developers can easily customise and configure smarter solutions that deliver real-time data analytics and remote system monitoring.
Based on open computing architectures, these platforms not only maximise existing transit agency infrastructure investments, they also help prepare operators for future infrastructure efficiency improvements such as the Internet of Things (IoT).
