Video analytic software to be inducted in the CCTV cameras across all stations on the Central Railway
The Central Railway, Railway Protection Force (RPF) is working towards improving the quality of the existing Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras under Integrated Security system. Out of the 800 cameras installed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), 63 cameras have been fitted with video analytic software to detect unusual activity.
The RPF is currently working with the company, assigned with the task of installing the CCTV cameras. The video analytic software will detect any sudden movement by an individual, will detect baggages left unattended at stations for more than five minutes and will provide the RPF a better grip on inspecting the CCTV cameras. Atul Srivastava, the Chief Security Commissioner (CSC), Central Railway, said, “The safety of the commuters will not be compromised and the RPF is working towards improving every aspect of providing better facilities to the commuters.”
