TransitVUE® Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)
In an effort to reduce greenhouse gases and other toxic pollutants on our planet, transit agencies are heavily promoting the use of public transportation. With the advent of this Go Green Initiative, the number of people using public transportation to commute to and from our cities and urban areas is gradually increasing. As a result, threat security breaches, safety issues, and train derailments are becoming a growing concern for many transit agencies. While the presence of additional transit police and sophisticated CCTV security systems are great deterrents, they do not provide early detection. With our TransitVUE® Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), intrusions can be detected far enough in advance to allow for preventative measures.
Our TransitVUE® Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are specialized sensing systems designed to be receptive to movement and vibration. These systems provide transit agencies with added security from unauthorized intrusions in railways, station platforms, fenced areas, tunnels, or bridges. Intrusions, such as suicide attempts and terrorist attacks, are detected instantly and zone intrusion alerts are reported to designated personnel. The selected employees can then determine the threat level and respond accordingly; for instance, by either stopping the train or evacuating the station.
