COMSA INDUSTRIAL HAS INSTALLED A NEW AUTOMATIC STATION OCCUPANCY CONTROL SYSTEM IN THE SEVILLE METRO, WHICH WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO KNOW IN REAL TIME THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS ON THE PLATFORMS AND LOBBIES IN ORDER TO ADAPT THE SERVICE TO THE NEEDS OF DEMAND.
The system notifies different occupation levels (low/medium/high) by means of a video observation device that carries out an analysis of occupation density at each of the line’s stops. This real-time analysis allows reliable alarms to be generated about an excess of passengers in the areas most sensitive to high concentrations. This information will enable Seville Metro staff to manage the service and adapt it effectively to the real situation.
COMSA Industrial has installed the video analysis devices in all the line’s stations, optimising the use of network resources. Every time there is a change in the occupation level of one of the cameras, a signal is reported to a service located in the CCTV (Control Occupancy) data server, which details the station camera that has generated the change in status and the volume of occupation. After processing the signal, the service sends the data to the Station Remote Control servers, which are responsible for providing the information to the room operators, notifying the medium and high occupation levels by means of two alarms.
