Shanghai Magnetic Levitation Train, the first Magnetic Levitation Train in commercial operation in the world, fully meets the requirement of high-speed transportation infrastructure with large capability of passengers. With the advantages of high-speed, low energy consumption and little impact to environment, magnetic levitation train has been providing incredible convenience for thousands of people every day. Ensuring the safety of passengers as well as maintaining a normal operation of the unique train, therefore, is critical for Shanghai Magnetic Levitation Train.
The priority in security for Shanghai Magnetic Levitation Train is to have a centralized platform that supports real-time viewing and locates the trains promptly, so that the security staff can easily get to know the security status in real time.
After a thorough investigation and research, Shanghai Magnetic Levitation Train Project decided to use the products from Hikvision, the leading digital surveillance products supplier with the headquarters in China, to guarantee the safety of the trains.
