Security & Surveillance

For Public Transport

Video surveillance is a very common feature in public transport. In many countries it is even a legal requirement. Despite the growing critical view of surveillance on a general level, most passengers accept or even welcome the need of video monitoring in public transport since it has a positive effect on their personal security and helps to reduce criminal activity. One of the challenges of video surveillance for public transport is the large number of cameras that need to be monitored. Fully integrating video surveillance into the public transport management system may help alleviate the problem.
