Ipsotek has announced the fulfillment of its contract with Sydney Trains, which increases security capabilities at 13 railway stations.

Ipsotek was selected by Sydney Trains to deliver an AI-based video analytics solution to security cameras to identify incidences of tunnel and track intrusion at 13 stations across metropolitan Sydney.

“Sydney Trains chose Ipsotek, after an extensive comparison of a number of products,” said Mark Edmonds, manager of security capability for transport at Sydney Trains.

“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.”

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 AI video analytics, to enhance the rail experience for passengers and staff in the UK.

“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,” said Chris Bishop, sales director APAC & marketing director at Ipsotek.

“It represents a welcome validation of our expertise within the 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 solutions firm, NVIDIA on implementation.
