Sydney Trains to Use AI Video Analytics

Sydney Trains has installed an AI-based video analytics security system at 13 stations across the Sydney metropolitan area. Under the agreement, the train operator has integrated a range of video analytics solutions from a UK-based tech firm specialising in Scenario-Based Video Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its security cameras to identify incidences of tunnel and track intrusion across the 13 stations.

The upgrade uses the Atos Computer Vision Platform, an end-to-end computer vision platform providing pre-trained and customisable AI models. The platform is powered by the BullSequana server range and GPUs by a US-based computer systems design services company.

The video analytics firm is working with the computer systems design services company on the implementation of computer vision in transportation. This is the company’s second transport project in the region. The video analytics company has also been involved in a previous AI video analytics program in the UK through the Innovate UK SBRI Initiative.

The Sydney Trains Manager of Security Capability stated that the company was selected in a competitive tender process. He noted that the firm’s proven track record in the AI video analytics space, its partnership with Genetec and its work with Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) for railway-focused AI applications made it a well-deserved choice.

The global video analytics market size is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 20.4% during the forecast period, to reach US$14.9 billion by 2026 from US$5.9 billion in 2021.

Key factors that are expected to drive the growth of the market are the increasing investments and focus of governing institutions on public safety, the need to utilize and examine unstructured video surveillance data in real-time, significant drop in crime rate due to surveillance cameras, growing need among enterprises to leverage BI and actionable insights for advanced operations, limitation of manual video analysis, government initiatives in adopting emerging technologies to enhance the public safety infrastructure, reduced cost of video surveillance equipment and long term ROI and demand for enhanced video surveillance.
