The Indian Railways will use technology used by Israel to keep their perimeters safe. Thane and Kalyan stations have been selected for this pilot project. The railways shall not only enhance security but also take crowd control measures using artificial intelligence. Sources said that Chairman of Railway Board, Ashwani Lohani has given a go-ahead for this trial.
At this point of time, the Central Railway (CR) is looking at replicating the technology used by Israel at public spaces. Sources said that they are looking at improvising the video analytics of Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTV) cameras installed at platforms, foot over bridges, entry/exit points and concourse areas of railway stations.
