In today's market mobility is everything. But transportation extends beyond just the holiday traveler, it is a key driver for overall economic growth as all passenger travel modes, air, rail, or highway, will include not only holiday passenger traffic but also business travelers and freight traffic as well.
Passenger experience and safety, operational efficiency, sustainability, and revenue are key goals for any transportation hub. While transportation hubs are responsible for moving massive numbers of passengers, there is an even larger amount of data being collected, via video cameras, that can help drive greater passenger satisfaction as well as drive better financial outcomes-in either revenue or cost reduction-for businesses tied to these hubs as well. These hubs collect massive amounts of data, in real time, but unless they can transform this data into insights and actions that can be engaged immediately, the opportunity for this data is squandered.
The combination of traditionally underserved customers combined with large amounts of recent public infrastructure investment makes computer vision workloads within transportation hubs a key focus for improvement and optimization projects.
While transportation hubs like airports already utilize video management systems (VMS) today, attached to a network of video cameras, there is a large untapped set of opportunities as these organizations are pushed to handle more use cases at a point where human resources are also limited. Technology can help fill this gap by delivering new operational efficiencies and additional capabilities, all focused on reducing costs, boosting revenue or creating a better user experience for the millions that flood through these hubs each year.
