Industry Solutions: Transportation surveillance systems deter crime and violence

Published by Amelia on January 25, 2011 3:34 PM

With security threats increasing, transportation video surveillance systems are routinely being used to create a safer and more secure environment for passengers and mass transit employees. Public transit systems like buses, taxis, subways, trains, and airports are all benefiting from expanding surveillance technology capabilities that make implementing an IP camera system easy.

Transportation surveillance systems offer several benefits to surveillance operators, security officials and public transit users. Even large transportation networks can reap the benefits security cameras offer thanks to the ability to monitor footage from multiple cameras from a central location.

Bus, train, and subway stations are often the victims of vandalism. Installing security cameras can help deter vandals from defacing property and can be used to identify repeat offenders. Security cameras also go a long way in helping to prevent violence and crime. Complete video surveillance systems can reduce crime or theft opportunities and can be used to identify suspicious behavior so that it may be stopped by the proper officials. In the unfortunate event that there is an incident, images from security cameras can be used as evidence.

Surveillance even extends onto the forms of transportation themselves. VideoSurveillance.com recently developed two mobile surveillance systems that offer robust surveillance for buses, trains, taxi cabs, subways and more. The Vivotek Mobile Surveillance System features the Vivotek MD7560 fixed dome camera with 2-megapixel resolution for detailed imaging and IP67 rated housing. The Mobotix Bus & Rails Surveillance System is built around the compact Mobotix Q24 360° network camera and provides an impressive 360° all-around view. Both systems come with a MicroSD Card, DC/DC Power over Ethernet injector, and an optional 12V wireless device.
