Helsinki adopts Teleste platform to improve metro services

Helsinki City Transport in Finland has selected Teleste’s S-AWARE platform in a bid to increase safety and situational awareness across the city’s metro system.

The Teleste S-AWARE platform is designed to improve operational efficiency, safety and security of public transportation, airports and other critical infrastructures.

It procures information from various associated subsystems, data sources and sensory inputs in real-time to provide a detailed and better understanding of all events, as well as facilitating the decision-making process.

Deployment of the S-AWARE platform across the metro system will bolster Helsinki City Transport’s response capabilities during emergencies, security and service failures.

“Adding situational awareness through intelligent public transport systems is one of the key methods the operators can use.”

The platform can be used to devise automated operating procedures for smart incident management. It will enable immediate corrective measures to address any unexpected incidents.

Teleste Video Security and Information Business unit head Esa Harju said: “We are delighted to expand our long-term cooperation with Helsinki City Transport on developing smart and safe public transport in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

“The rapidly growing urbanisation challenges public transport operators throughout the world to find solutions that can provide enhanced operational control and tools to increase safety in public places.

“Adding situational awareness through intelligent public transport systems is one of the key methods the operators can use to reach the target.”

The €2m deployment of S-AWARE will be carried out in multiple phases, starting next year. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
