Advantages of Transportation Surveillance
Security equipment developers have applied extensive experience in the transport sector to bring to market sophisticated mobile and static CCTV solutions, systems which can help to secure the safety of passengers and valuable cargos, prevent damage to transport infrastructure, minimize disruption to services and deliver valuable management information.
Multi-camera digital video recorders are becoming a vital element of transportation security, with considerable interest for public and private transport applications. This is not surprising given the potential of this technology to address the vulnerability, helping operators to spot unusual activity and tackle the day-to-day headaches of vandalism and assaults on passengers and staff.
When fitted to school busses, for example, these compact, self-contained, systems are capable of continuously monitoring the inside activity. There is even the potential to conduct remote surveillance thereby complementing the existing permanently positioned CCTV infrastructure. Applied as an overt measure, with the cameras in public view, experience suggests that this provides a significant deterrent to wrongdoing, delivering much needed reassurance to passengers. In some cases, to enhance protection for staff and passengers, digital recorders are linked to a panic button. In the event of an emergency, the panic button is activated by authorized personnel, such as the driver, initiating an immediate call to a control station for assistance.
