HELSINKI CITY TRANSPORT ADOPTS TELESTE'S S-AWARE® PLATFORM TO BUILD A UNIFIED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS SYSTEM FOR THE HELSINKI METRO
Helsinki City Transport has selected Teleste's S-AWARE® platform to drive improved situational awareness and safer travelling across the Helsinki metro system. The deployment of the platform will be started in 2019 and the project will be carried out in several phases and be completed the end of the year 2020. The total value of the deployment will be more than two million euros.
During recent years, the Helsinki Metro has undergone several upgrades and major extensions. Today, it includes more than 20 stations in Helsinki and its neighbouring cities and serves the capital region of Finland with hundreds of thousands of daily rides. Every year, over 80 million passengers and commuters enjoy travelling in the system, which forms the northernmost metro in the world.
Keeping the safety and security of the passengers and the entire metro system in mind, Helsinki City Transport is adopting Teleste's S-AWARE® platform to develop their response capabilities and to ensure a high service level, e.g., during possible security failures, alerts and states of emergency, as well as in other complex or critical situations.
Teleste S-AWARE® platform has been designed to help enhance efficiency, safety and security in public transportation, airports, critical infrastructure and in the governmental sector. The platform works by collecting real -time information from various subsystems, data sources and sensory inputs, and it displays a unified and real-time view of the whole operational infrastructure. This provides for the improved understanding of what is happening in the surroundings and creates grounds for efficient decision-making.
Teleste's deployment to Helsinki City Transport will also enable efficient use of the system for multiple other operators, including the police, fire and rescue forces, Helsinki Regional Transport Authority, and the cities of Helsinki and Espoo. Delivering the right information to the right people at the right time, the system is harnessed with high information and data security that guarantees protection from any unauthorized access.
