China is one of the leaders in high-speed rail, with more than 25,000 kilometers of planned railways and a total investment of more than US$300 billion. The project for China high-speed railway from Zhengzhou to Xi'an is the first high-speed passenger railway in western China.
This particular section stretches about 505 kilometers long across a vast expanse. With a top speed of 350 kilometers per hour, the direct travel time between the two cities will be reduced from six hours to less than two hours, boosting both passenger and cargo capacity.
Poseidon, Vivotek's authorized distributor in China, deployed a Vivotek IP surveillance system with an intelligent solution that monitors the extensive railway network and station traffic, ensuring the safety of passengers, personnel and equipments with better monitoring and management.
China's new high-speed passenger railway linking Zhengzhou and Xi'an began formal operation on Feb. 6. The 505 kilometer-long high-speed railway represents the first of the nation's 10 proposed high-speed railways.
Authorities at the high-speed railway requested that both high efficiency and safety were paramount along the railway, including a total of 13 stations. Thus, Poseidon, Vivotek‘s distributor in China, deployed a surveillance system with AgentVI's intelligent solution to provide comprehensive security control for the overall railway network and station traffic.
For the solution, Vivotek‘s video server was recommended for 548 surveillance checkpoints in Phase I of the construction of the new high-speed railway. A total of 1,500 additional surveillance checkpoints will be brought online in Phase II in provide a fully functioning solution.
The security and efficiency of the high-speed railway relies heavily on the video content analysis embedded into the video server and provided by Agent VI, which provides remote monitoring of critical site security such as railroad yards, crossings, bridges, tunnels and intersections to ensure the utmost in transportation safety. Other monitored areas include station plazas, lobbies, platforms, and passenger paths to ensure passenger security. For non-manned areas and lighting facilities, the surveillance system ensures facility operations. If emergencies or natural disasters such as a storm, mudslide, flood, or traffic accident occur, the surveillance system can provide live a view of the railroad leading to immediate response from the proper parties via the wireless command system.
With the AgentVI intelligent analysis, the surveillance system achieves truly next-generation functionality by immediately warning and preventing unauthorized access to the railway as well as detecting loitering and suspicious activity in restricted areas.
The new high-speed railway security solution using Vivotek‘s intelligent solution strengthens integrated security control to monitor the extensive railway network and station traffic and provides a prime example of surveillance for next-generation transportation. The system also aims at ensuring the safety of passengers, personnel, and equipment, thus enabling better monitoring and management.
"Vivotek‘s high-tech IVA integrated solutions provide robust intelligent surveillance of the Zhengzhou to Xi'an high-speed railway. The company's high quality hardware and logistics support as well R&D project tuning have enhanced overall security on this important project," said Ranking High-Speed Railway Authorities.
