Teleste says its smart bus stop in Espoo, Finland, uses video surveillance and 5G to help security personnel respond to incidents.
Teleste’s bus stop is being tested as part of the Nokia Bell Labels LuxTurrim5G project, which seeks to demonstrate the fast 5G network based on smart light poles, with integrated antennas, base stations, sensors, screens and other devices.
The bus stop is located within Teleste’s Connected Zone – an area which utilises alarms, built-in cameras and dynamic information solutions to turn bus stops and shelters into areas which users can connect with via their smartphones. This concept will continue to be developed as part of the company’s smart city offering.
The Connected Zone’s digital smart displays could potentially provide travel information and advertisements.
This bus stop is equipped with sensors which observe the air quality and weather. The bus location is retrieved from open data sources provided by open application programming interfaces of cities.
In January, Teleste presented its smart video surveillance information management solution at Intersec 2018, in Dubai. Called Teleste S-VMX, the solution is expected to provide a security hub for smart city security.
