San Diego MTS taps Apollo for mobile surveillance

Posted on October 25, 2010

The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) selected Apollo Video Technology's RoadRunner MRH DVR and back-end management software for its fleet of transit vehicles. In the first phase of the project, Apollo Video will replace existing transit surveillance systems in 246 of MTS fixed-route buses and deploy wireless back-end equipment providing fleet-wide data and real-time video streaming.

The new installation will include Apollo Video's digital video recorders (DVRs), interior and exterior cameras, motion detectors and wireless local area network (LAN) equipment.

The contract also includes Vehicle Information Management software, which will supply MTS with vehicle status reports, event logs, on-demand video clip retrieval and automated downloads of event video.

MTS will utilize the MRH8 and MRH12 series DVRs equipped with seven to nine cameras based on the specific bus types. Each camera system supplied by Apollo Video will provide MTS with state-of-the-art Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities, allowing transit officials to monitor real-time video and location data.

To capture potential incidents occurring inside the transit yards overnight, MTS requested that Apollo Video include motion detection capabilities to trigger the system to start recording at the first sign of movement. The passive infrared sensor detects any movement inside the vehicle when the bus is turned off.
