The Indian Railways is leaving no stone unturned to see to the safety of the passengers inside the trains and at the railway stations. Not just safety, even the modernisation of the railway stations is running as its top priority. Let’s take a look at what the people of Pune will soon be seeing at their railway station.
The Pune Railway Station will partner with a subsidiary of Jio Platforms, JioThings, for a month-long pilot project under which four AI-based Internet Protocol (IP) Cameras will be installed at the station to enhance surveillance, The Indian Express reported. The cameras will be installed at the entrance, at the exit and in the Public Reservation System (PRS). According to an official, the pilot project will start in the next 15 days.
The surveillance system was presented by JioThings as one of the seven proposals it gave to the station, as per the Divisional Commercial Manager (DCM), Ramdas Bhise. The solution has been given the approval. The officials will now look at the feasibility and modality of its performance before they finalise it. The other six digital solutions that the firm offered included a sub-metering solution, a lightning automation solution, and a water pump automation solution, among others.
The Indian Express reported that the railway’s official data shows that the Pune railway station presently has 61 high-quality CCTV cameras and 65 more will be installed by March 2024.
