Thermal Imaging Systems for Public Transportation Safety

20160114Thermal Imaging in the Transportation Sector

While the transportation sector continues to grow in revenue, size and scope, so too does the risk associated with maintaining public safety. The transportation industry must seek out more comprehensive solutions to bridge the gap between the capabilities of conventional video surveillance and the vulnerabilities created by a lack of ambient light, challenging environments such as fog or haze, long range detection limitations and glare from external light sources.

  • Mass Transit and Passenger Rail As the general public becomes more reliant on mass transit as a means of transportation to and from work, rain or shine, from dusk until dawn, existing security infrastructures must be improved to provide the necessary level of safety to mass transit and passenger rail patrons.
  • Aviation Maintaining active surveillance, alerting security personnel to potential threats and long-range detection capabilities remain prevalent challenges for perimeter security at airport facilities.
  • Commercial Distribution The past several years have seen an increasing rate of theft in freight delivery and shipping operations. Organized crime efforts are more frequently targeting consumer goods that can be easily sold on the black market.

Improving Operational Efficiency and Safety

The evolution of thermal imaging continues to enable Security Systems Integrators with more efficient surveillance, more comprehensive coverage and lower false alarm rates. In the transportation sector, safeguarding pedestrians and maintaining surveillance of valuable cargo can be more wholly achieved through the implementation of IP networked thermal camera systems.
