Operating a transportation hub is a constant exercise in managing real-time operations and any opportunity to drive better real-time operational efficiency can dramatically boost not only the traveler's experience but also the staff working at the hub. Video can assist in getting ahead of problems before they begin impacting travelers and preemptive maintenance helps to reduce incidents by ensuring a more stable operation. Video monitoring assists in helping to manage staff distribution, allocating more staff to areas of higher passenger concentration, resulting in a more efficient passenger flow. Efficiency and sustainability can even be aided by video when it comes to dealing with some of the more hazardous materials like those used to de-ice planes. By monitoring their usage more closely, operational efficiency leads to better safety as well as better environmental sustainability.
