Lubomír Šmíd Security Manager at the Municipal Transport Company, says: “Today's companies usually can’t provide such a quality service of a historic machine. But this solution helps us to look after it for future generations. There is no other machine like this, and now we can prevent damage that cannot be quantified either historically or financially.”
Although the thermal cameras are mainly used to prevent the risk of fire at the moment, there’s a plan for further use too. The technology can also be used to monitor the funicular rail tracks outside, enhancing safety. For example, anyone stepping on the rails would be detected by the camera’s smart Line Crossing behavior analysis function.
The introduction of a cutting-edge technology is helping to maintain and secure a 100-year old railway system. This is particularly interesting, since it was built in the infancy of thermal technology. Their stories seem to have developed in tandem!
