Ipsotek, an Atos company, improves Station Safety and Security for Sydney Trains
London (UK) and Paris (France) - October 12 2021, London
Ipsotek, an Atos company and a pioneer in artificial intelligence powered video analytics, has today announced the fulfillment of its contract with Sydney Trains, operator of rail services across the metropolitan Sydney area, to increase security capabilities at 13 stations.
Following a competitive tendering process, Ipsotek was selected by Sydney Trains to deliver an AI-based video analytics solution. This has seen the train operator integrate a range of Ipsotek’s AI-powered video analytics solutions with its security cameras to identify incidences of tunnel and track intrusion at 13 stations across the metropolitan Sydney area. Today, Ipsotek’s AI solutions are at the core of Atos Computer Vision Platform, a unique end-to-end computer vision platform providing pre-trained & customizable AI models powered by the BullSequana server range enabled by NVIDIA GPUs and enriched by worldwide expert labs.
Mark Edmonds, Manager of Security Capability for Transport at Sydney Trains, commented: “Sydney Trains chose Ipsotek after an extensive comparison of a number of products. Ipsotek’s proven track record in the AI Video Analytics space, its partnership with Genetec and its work with Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) for railway focused AI applications, made it a well-deserved choice.”
Chris Bishop, Sales Director APAC & Marketing Director at Ipsotek, said: “As a British SME competing against some of the industry’s big-named companies, we are delighted to have been chosen by Sydney Trains to deliver this project. It represents a welcome validation of our expertise within transportation, and more specifically the rail sector, and we are proud to have supported Sydney Trains with its commitment to delivering enhanced security practices across its network.”
The project with Sydney Trains is the second transportation project in the region for Ipsotek, which is working with accelerated computing leader NVIDIA on implementation. Ipsotek is a member of the NVIDIA Metropolis partner program, which brings together a computing platform and extensive ecosystem of specialists to help create smarter spaces and solve some of the world’s most pressing problems involving operational efficiency and public safety.
Sudarshan Ramachandran, Country Manager, Enterprise, ANZ at NVIDIA, added: “As an NVIDIA Metropolis partner, Ipsotek delivers incredibly valuable capabilities, solving deeply challenging video-analytics problems using AI and the NVIDIA GPU accelerated computing stack.”
Ipsotek’s project with Sydney Trains follows the company’s previous success in delivering an initial programme of work via the Innovate UK SBRI initiative for the development of Artificial Intelligence Video Analytics to enhance the rail experience for passengers and staff in the UK.
