Along with booming development in urbanization, the trend leads to a new innovated technology in public transportation system. Metro system has significantly become the majority in its development. Nowadays, the trend for transportation electronic devices has been turning into intelligent transportation system, in order to provide highly safety, convenience, and comfortable environment for the passengers. Due to terrorist attack and stabbing spree have risen in recent years, the prevention is needed which forces governments to increase the demand for intelligent surveillance system for transportation sector.
In many circumstances, all the direct evidences will be made through the image that captured from monitoring system in order to verify accountability of accident, crime evident, or to prevent any legal behavior or purposes. Therefore, there are more requirements on the quality and specification of surveillance system, and also the demand to integrate with manageable and intelligent analysis alarm system, which could fully prevent any possible incidents.
A trend has been emerging that requires each cabinet to install the surveillance security system to protect passenger safety. The system can easily monitor each cabinet’s situation and instantly transfer the data to driver’s cabinet. When an emergency occurs, the driver can immediately control the situation through monitoring system. Moreover, all the data can be transferred back to central control room through wireless or 3G/4G technology for remote management, which could enhance the overall security protection.
Public transportation system like Metro has major responsibility to relieve massive traffic for the city, the stability and functional applications are relatively important factors in high cost development of transportation system. In order to carry huge number of daily passengers and to achieve safety and convenience purposes, we must have a complete system design combined with strictly personnel management. However, the demand of safety management is various with complexity, normally it is not just a single unit or system could achiInfrastructure Featureseve the entire job. Therefore, the integration for system platform along with railway electromechanical design has become a major task.
Wenhu line of Taipei MRT (Massive Rapid Transit) is one kind of unmanned system and there are total four cabinets in one train and its design concept is each cabinet installed with two IP cameras, in connection with monitor, emergency braking system, emergency intercom, and smoke detector.
Through this complete infrastructure design, the passenger could efficiently ask for the help to control center by using the emergency intercom whenever an accident occurs.
When passengers press the intercom button, the monitoring system could know its location, and immediately transfer the data back to control center, so the staff are able to monitor the situation in each cabinet in real-time solution and take proper actions. The control center will perform daily routine testing for passenger intercom and line broadcasting, to ensure the system is running in normal operation.
An integrated surveillance & security system design for rail cabinet has become a mandatory task. The data or image monitoring system, door emergency open/close control, fisheye lens, wide-angle or hidden camera are all required electronic devices on the cabinet, to ensure passengers’ safety from possible incidents. In addition, with the images stored inside of DVR system, all the data from cabinet, access control system, and train information could be sent back through wireless technology to Operating Control Center (OCC), or Station Control Room (SCR), or Passenger Agent Office (PAO) for train stop location and access control monitoring. Figure 1. Shows the structure of the surveillance system.
