Intellio: perimeter protection for Hungarian State Railways. Security copper cables at the most important nodes on the Vienna-Budapest international line are guarded by Intelligent IP cameras with Intruder detection on board. Security is alerted by the cameras when an intruder enters the guarded area. Stealing transport security cables can not only cause huge property damage but also endanger human lives.
Intelligent Video Detection
The main goal of the project was to catch offenders before the act and avoid damages. By avoiding these situations human lives and millions of euros can be saved – said János Kópházi, CEO of solution provider camera manufacturer Intellio. The new system of MÁV is completely different from the usual security solutions.
The recently installed system is equipped with intruder detection, which immediately sends an alarm to the security staff in case of a security event. These megapixel resolution cameras are able to differentiate humans from animals or from other moving objects. Security guards only need to react when humans are trespassing on the observed area.
Observation Points Connected via WLAN
Standalone observation points (Intelligent IP cameras) communicate with each other through a WLAN network. The recording of the megapixel resolution streams takes place on the same wireless network as data communication. Live monitoring and reception of alerts are realized in the security headquarters.
The data transfer between the observed location and the central office is done through GSM UMTS 3G data transfer technology. All cameras are shipped with a heavy-duty IR reflector for day and night observation, enabling cameras to monitor distances of 40–70 meters. The efficiency of an ordinary security system today is based on the personal element. These systems do nothing besides transmitting images to the operators.
With multi camera systems the guards are expected to stay alert for an extended period of time and recognize security events on multiple screens. However, this solution entails a lot of human errors and in most cases security can only react after the damages are done by replaying and analyzing recorded footage.
To make matters worse, with common systems picture quality is often insufficient to identify the intruders. The technology utilized by MÁV (Hungarian State Railways) offers several pioneering solutions in the field of security, such as gallery observation – picture protection, traffic monitoring systems and retail solutions.
