Image analysis tool for detecting illegal riders on goods trains.

Duos Technologies : 30 October, 2007  (Application Story)
Train Rider Detection System from Duos is an image analysis tool that allows images of moving trains to be analysed in real-time to detect illegal riders at border crossings.
Duos Technologies announces the successful deployment of its cutting-edge Train Rider Detection System (TRiDS) to a major tier-one rail freight carrier.

The Train Rider Detection System (TriDS) automatically captures, inspects, and processes real time images from freight trains moving through a portal at speeds of up to 70 mph, analysing each image for predetermined anomalies such as a person riding in the well of a container car. This digital search of the train minimizes the need to stop trains for inspection, with the objective to maintain train velocity throughout the route while protecting our country's borders. The system incorporates Praesidium software and proprietary algorithms to interpret scenes captured from a combination of cameras, providing sophisticated, intelligent video intrusion detection and processing the information into a user-friendly TRiDS Graphic User Interface (GUI).

These patent-pending technologies represent a breakthrough in automated identification and video analytics. TRiDS minimizes false alarms while providing:.

* Automated Illegal Rider Identification at speeds of up to 70 mph.
* Remote Viewing to eliminate unnecessary stoppage of the train for physical inspection.
* Linear Panorama Generator for review of the entire train presented in a proprietary panoramic image setting.

"Our unique TRiDS system provides an invaluable resource for maintaining the integrity of our borders, and subsequently enhancing our national security," said Gianni Arcaini, Chairman and CEO of duostech. "We are proud to offer a critical Homeland Security tool for use by our nation's railroads and border security personnel."
