Heighten Travel and Transportation Security

Within the Travel and Transportation industry, there are many possible benefits that can result from utilizing IBM Intelligent Video Analytics. Hotels, airlines, airports, freight and logistic companies, railways, and other businesses that operate in the Travel and Transportation space can all find advantages within the IBM Intelligent Video Analytics solution.

For instance, a hotel in Miami can create a number of perimeters with live-streaming, fixed cameras that will send alerts to the hotel’s security team when anyone of those perimeters are breached. A public transit system in a Northeastern city can have a different type of perimeter created that will send out alerts to the appropriate people when objects – such as suitcases or briefcases – are left behind on any of its train platforms. A regional airline can monitor its gates at the airports it operates in to learn when one or more gates are becoming too congested and thus a large crowd is forming. A shipping facility in a large Midwestern city can be notified when people are loitering near restricted areas such as a warehouse that contains dangerous chemicals. A Canadian railway company with a network of cameras can create alerts that will indicate when objects are sitting on tracks, helping to alert any approaching train of possible dangerous situations.

These and other capabilities are some of the benefits that IBM Intelligent Video Analytics provide.

Controlling Video Output

By converting video images to data, users are able to filter and analyze video more efficiently. With some companies collecting millions of video images every minute, having a system that parses important and relevant information into structured data can help to provide intuitive understanding. This converted data can help a user discover prevailing tendencies that can help prevent business disruptions or in the case of when an event has already occurred, significantly accelerate the efforts to pinpoint the exact location and who may have been involved.
