Minimizing the Risks in People and Cargo Transportation
Trains are used to transport passengers or cargo safe and economically. But trains and the tracks, stations, and cargo loading areas that serve them – pose particular challenges for security.
Video cameras are ideal tools because they can operate 24/7 even in remote or lightly traveled areas. They can be located at underpasses and stations or used to identify and monitor specific trains.
The round-the-clock nature of train travel, as well as the extreme lighting conditions caused by the physical layout of rail facilities, makes it difficult for traditional CCD-based security cameras to capture accurate images, especially when there’s high contrast between very bright and very dark areas of a scene.
