Video surveillance network for real-time central monitoring of passenger safety and security on public trains
Public transportation has regained its popularity over the last few years mainly due to a sharp increase in fuel price and environmental awareness. This offers a new challenge for the public transport authority to introduce an improved safety and security management.
As a measure to improve the safety and security management, most of the public transport stations are now equipped with CCTVs. The issue that still remains a major research challenge is to enable CCTV on public transports when they are on the move.
The aim of this project is to develop new strategies to increase uploading video data rate from moving public transports so that a centrally monitored real-time video surveillance system can be facilitated on public transports.
