Metro St. Louis awarded Safety Vision a $250,000 contract to install onboard surveillance camera systems on 50 new Call-A-Ride paratransit vans.
The new Call-A-Ride vehicles will be outfitted with four mobile-related security cameras, microphones, impact sensors and the Safety Vision RoadRecorder 6000 PRO mobile digital video recorder (MDVR). The MDVR supports up to 10 interior and exterior cameras and records video, audio and system health data in a secure, encrypted MPEG4 format.
The new contract was approved by the agency in June 2008. Installation is scheduled to occur in two shifts: the first 25 vehicles in August 2008, the second 25 in October 2008.
