The transport and logistics industry faces numerous challenges and is directly impacted by national concerns. Businesses are vulnerable to several operational variables, creating significant safety and security concerns for employees and cargo. However, technology is evolving to match the security needs of the transport and logistics sector.
At a time when protecting logistics sites, factories and distribution centres is more important than it’s ever been, CathexisVision offers a range of smart surveillance solutions to address the unique security challenges of the logistics and transport sector. CathexisVision is a flexible and scalable video surveillance management technology that can provide a comprehensive security solution for any logistics site.
CathexisVision addresses the security needs at each area and stage of the logistics management process. The technology of CathexisVision seamlessly integrates with advances further afield to create efficient solutions that maximise value for customers. Container number recognition is a prime example, where CathexisVision has integrated with the Vaxtor onboard analytics on Axis cameras to automatically read containers’ unique numbers, as well as trucks’ licence plates.
Containers and trucks can be tracked throughout the logistics site, providing valuable data to operators on live movements of containers, as well as the auditability of these movements. These movement transactions can also be incorporated into customers’ larger systems, such as SAP, which will collate the existing information on containers as well as the tracking of containers throughout the site.
Securing a site’s perimeter and verifying the movement around a site is essential to ensuring that staff, cargo and assets are protected. CathexisVision can be configured to respond to unusual activity, detect people walking up to a boundary or a forbidden area, integrate with perimeter monitoring systems and automate commands in response to events. Health and safety compliance is improved through a speed algorithm that would alert operators that a vehicle is travelling over the speed limit.
Logistics entities have areas that are protected by access control systems, which secure turnstiles, gates, barriers, cages and doors. With CathexisVision, if a cage has been left open too long, an integrated access control system would be able to automatically notify an operator by providing the associated video footage. The CathexisVision solution can thus improve situational awareness and response times to events.
CathexisVision’s in-house engineered video analytics suite can intelligently detect abandoned objects, track people or vehicles within designated areas and generate real-time alerts and data. This promises more secure logistics sites and better monitoring of traffic in and out of buildings, container yards and other areas that present major security concerns. Crowd-gathering analytics measure occupancy within an area and send notifications when the number of people in an area exceeds health or safety regulations, as configured by operators.
The technology is smart, but the user interface is straightforward and user-friendly. It is designed to save time. This includes effective search tools, such as quickly reviewing footage from more than one camera, footage from specific incidents, or using the SMART search feature to find events and irregularities. The software speeds up access to data and systems, giving users more control and enabling a swift and appropriate response to security threats.
By optimising operators’ situational awareness, adding value through seamless integration with several third-party systems and maximising the efficiency of the control room environment, CathexisVision is a solution that provides a significant return on your investment. CathexisVision is a tried and tested brand that has proven itself by providing security solutions that reduce human error while protecting human interests.
