Video surveillance has a long history of use within transportation hubs. The live video feeds from the network of cameras can be combined with other sources of both structured and unstructured data to derive real-time situational awareness that enables facility security personnel to shorten response times and improve facility safety. For instance, object recognition can be used to track suspicious items or identify potential problem devices throughout the entire hub. During times of pandemic or other viral outbreaks, thermal video monitoring may identify unhealthy travelers before they themselves even recognize that they are ill. Facial recognition can be used to identify and track potential threats without needing to engage the person in question or creating an unneeded incident that impacts other travelers. A combination of video surveillance and temperature monitoring can help maximize the ventilation systems, preventing situations where rising temperatures could lead to passenger discomfort or incidents. By analyzing and calculating wait times, facilities can better manage queues, optimizing passenger flow and reducing unsafe bottlenecks in security screening or loading and unloading.
