Ensure Wayside Operation Safety with EN 50121 Robust
and Intelligent Video Surveillance

  • Level crossing accidents comprise up to 50% of all fatalities caused by railway operations. The major cause of these crashes and accidents is the behavior of the public, and not the malfunctioning of technical equipment. Still, this makes level crossings a weak point in road and railway infrastructure, and improving the safety of level crossings is an important subject in both academic research and in practical real-world applications. Improving the safety of people interacting with the rail system and the security of the facilities themselves is a key part of ensuring smooth road and rail transportation. New sophisticated strategies such as advanced barriers and road signs have been proposed to enhance security.

    Moxa can deliver a unique solution based on intelligent video surveillance. Since most accidents are caused by human behavior, accidents can be prevented by quickly detecting and responding to dangerous situations. For example, the video system could automatically detect obstacles, such as a vehicle stopped on the level crossing. The system can also measure the degree of movement in a predefined detection zone, then apply intelligent video analysis algorithms to interpret the context of an image and isolate key subjects of interest. These new technologies will give railway staff earlier warnings about potential issues and allow them to quickly respond to developing emergencies by stopping oncoming trains. In addition, any events will be recorded as evidence by the video surveillance.

  • Smart Surveillance: IVA Alarms for Real-Time Reactions

    Intruder detection, perimeter protection, and alarms comprise 70% of the security market, a category that is by far the biggest application segment. Moxa’s CCTV surveillance systems cover all segments with a single IVA (intelligent video analysis) algorithm that is able to run on a wide range of devices such as cameras, video encoders and video management systems.

  • With IVA functionality, Moxa CCTV surveillance systems can quickly detect a wide variety of threats. Moxa IVA can be configured to detect a virtual fence, an alert zone, missing objects, and unattended objects. Combined with a 24 MB pre-alarm buffer and prompt alert functions, Moxa’s rugged IP cameras enables surveillance staff to quickly retrieve and review details of abnormal events from the inserted SD/SDHC card and send alarm messages through CGI commands or email.

  • Wayside Detection

    The wayside is one of the highest risk zones of the rail infrastructure, and lack automated high-accuracy solutions. Remote wayside locations are difficult to access and tough to monitor, and thus present significant deployment challenges. Moxa IVA offers unique, highly optimized capabilities that can be deployed to meet the sensitive security requirements of these sites.

    Moxa IVA can automatically detect several key wayside scenarios:

    • People entering the level-crossing at any time
    • Any moving object other than trains identified on the track
    • Objects abandoned at trackside
    • Large metallic or organic objects on the tracks such as logs, shopping carts, or a motorcycle
    • People crossing the railroad tracks
