Trackside safety and lone workers
Protecting staff is a primary concern in the rail industry, and it is a particular worry in remote and vulnerable locations.
EdgeVis Body Worn, Digital Barriers' unique video-transmitting technology, enhances worker safety.
It combines GPS location with a real-time video stream of what a worker is seeing and doing, allowing supervisors to spot and address any potential dangers or causes for alarm.
Live video from remote working locations enables rapid identification of issues when trackside workers or lone staff find themselves in difficulties.
Obtaining usable video from remote locations is problematic as conventional video codecs aren’t designed for poor transmission over low bandwidth or constrained networks. Typically image break-up or delay renders video feeds unusable.
EdgeVis BodyWorn cameras on a tunic or helmet will send images back to a central control room with none of these issues.
The technology was specifically developed to overcome the problems of streaming over congested and low bandwidth wireless networks, and will reliably deliver usable and continuous video and audio even over GPRS/2G/Satellite at bandwidths as low as 9kbps.
Our unique technology uses around 60% less bandwidth than standard video transmission systems so there are significant savings in data too, making video feeds from rail workers cost effective as well as viable.
The video stream is distributed to central command and other rail workers as required.
It can be integrated into existing video management systems, while secure local recording allows accurate evidence of events to be kept for forensic and evidential use.
The solution also has an on-board panic button and can be used alongside Push4Help and Heartbeat safety services.
So with EdgeVis Body Worn, track workers can have an extra pair of eyes looking after them.
