Some 3,500 network cameras from Axis Communications are slated for buses in the Czech capitol of Prague.
The AXIS 209FD-R Network Cameras will be part of a system for monitoring each vehicle’s interior, improving passenger security and providing evidence to help solve incidents of vandalism and other crimes. The installation started in November 2009 and the whole installation will be finished in 2014.
The cameras will be installed in 620 buses.
Ray Mauritsson, president of Axis Communications, said Axis’ network video products have been installed in buses in Stockholm, trains in Zurich and subway cars in Moscow.
The AXIS 209FD-R Network Camera is a palm-sized, discreet, rugged network camera specifically for the tough environments found in mass transit vehicles. Its durable transparent cover provides excellent protection against dust, humidity and vibrations. The small built-in heater eliminates condensation on the lens or cover. The cameras are designed for easy installation and can withstand the tough and changing conditions in buses.
