Sydney Trains embraces AI video analytics

Sydney Trains has installed an AI-based video analytics security system from Atos subsidiary Ipsotek at 13 stations across the Sydney metropolitan area.

Under the agreement, the train operator has integrated a range of Ipsotek video analytics solutions with its security cameras to identify incidences of tunnel and track intrusion across the 13 stations.

The upgrade uses the Atos Computer Vision Platform, an end-to-end computer vision platform providing pre-trained and customisable AI models. The platform is powered by the BullSequana server range and NVIDIA GPUs.

Ipsotek is working with NVIDIA on implementation of computer vision in transportation, and is a member of the NVIDIA Metropolis partner program.

This is the company’s second transport project in the region. Ipsotek has also been involved in a previous AI video analytics program in the UK through the Innovate UK SBRI Initiative.

Sydney Trains Manager of Security Capability Mark Edmons said Ipsotek was selected in a competitive tender process. “Sydney Trains chose Ipsotek after an extensive comparison of a number of products,” he said.

“Ipsotek’s proven track record in the AI video analytics space, its partnership with Genetec and its work with Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) for railway-focused AI applications made it a well-deserved choice.”
