Video analytics protect Amtrak and CSX railway routes.

Duos Technologies : 16 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Behavioural analytics embedded in intelligent video surveillance to be used for reducing crime and casualties on Washington DC railway network.
Duos Technologies (duostech) has been awarded a contract valued in excess of one million dollars to expand its existing intelligent video and security sensor system along a segment of the Amtrak and CSX rail system running through downtown Washington DC.

The award is the latest in a series for Duos, which received similar contracts in 2005 ($9.8 million) and 2006 ($4.7 million) to secure a stretch of track commonly known as the DC Rail Corridor. Duos received the award from Epsilon Systems Solutions, the prime contractor and program manager under a contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The project includes a comprehensive virtual security buffer zone within which any moving object is detected, analyzed, and authenticated. Events such as perimeter breaches, objects left behind or removed from a scene, and loitering behaviour are compared to set rules and processed as an actionable alarm event if they meet certain criteria. The system is capable of processing input from radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and from a host of security sensitive detectors. Data from the system is monitored by Amtrak and CSX Police, as well as made available to other federal, district and local authorities and agencies.

"I am proud to join once again with Epsilon, DHS, CSX, and Amtrak to ensure implementation of the most advanced technology and security solutions to protect the lives of our citizenry, the continuity of rail service, and the security of our nation's cherished landmarks and infrastructure," said Gianni Arcaini, CEO of Duos Technologies. "The integrated use of artificial intelligence, dynamic three-dimensional (3D) graphical interfaces, and video analytic technology will provide a virtual curtain of protection over this area, allowing vital information to be presented in a logical format for incident and emergency responders."
