PSIM Technology For Transport Management Systems

PSIM in use for Traffic Management Integrated control room technology using Physical Security Information Management technology can help traffic run more smoothly in complex urban environments. As surveillance based security systems have become more capable of performing more complex functions with the increased use of IP technology as a platform, so the control and operation of such systems has also become more demanding. Video Management Systems were developed to facilitate this demand for integration and improved manageability and continue to be the main platform on which most IP surveillance systems are built. However, complex environments like major ports and docks, rail terminals and airports require a significant leap in technology to be able to effectively manage all of the different sensor inputs from smoke alarms, intruder detection systems, door status sensors and dozens of other devices that are attached to the security network, both analogue and digital. It was in such environments that the technology of PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) was developed. PSIM goes a step beyond VMS and combines data from surveillance and other inputs to create a holistic overview of a security environment along with the intelligence to provide control room operators with decision paths based on alarm conditions or combinations of events. Some of the workflow can even be automated, further reducing the dependence on human intervention. PSIM for Traffic Management Intelligent Transport Systems ( ITS ) are also benefitting from such advances in technology and provide the kind of challenges that PSIM is designed […]

Progressive Technologies Used For Surveillance On Moving Waterway Ferries

The 8 million annual passengers that travel the New York Harbor on NY Waterway ferries now do so more safely; they are protected by an extensive, state-of-the-art video surveillance system. The safety system includes hundreds of Interlogix IP and analog cameras, transmitted from moving ferries to a land-based security command center via a fast-roaming wireless mesh network based on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) by Fluidmesh Networks. Interlogix is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. interlogix_casestudy    PHOTO COURTESY OF INTERLOGIX NY Waterway is the nation’s largest privately owned commuter ferry company, transporting 30,000 riders a day between 22 landings and terminals along a 100-mile corridor in the Hudson and East rivers and upper New York Harbor. While the company has always placed a high priority on security, monitoring real-time events on 35 ferries traveling up to 45 miles per hour, often in harsh weather conditions, can be a major challenge. The solution, paid for through a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, deployed Interlogix cameras connected via Fluidmesh’s MPLS-based wireless mesh network. The network spans the service area and provides seamless connectivity to transmit live video from the ferries, terminals and landings for review by company security personnel. “With this system we can now share information quickly, accurately and in real time with our port partners — New York City Police Department, New Jersey State Police and federal agencies — which is really the key to an effective emergency […]
