HPE delivering safety and efficiency for Auckland transport system

First publishedin ITS World Congress
Daily News
Day 3
Five years ago Auckland Transport, enlisted Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) for a “big data” project to glean video analytics from more than 2,000 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras located throughout New Zealand’s largest city.

As a result, Auckland is closer to realising its vision of safer roads and more efficient public transportation, as HPE is highlighting at the ITS World Congress in Melbourne. Before this, a small staff at Auckland Transport monitored hundreds of older CCTV screens.

“We were missing so much,” said Roger Jones, Auckland Transport’s chief technology officer. “The cameras were being used for reactive investigation rather than active problem management.”

Making the roads safer requires pinpointing hot spots and trends, mitigating and reacting swiftly to issues, and monitoring the performance of the entire transportation network. Auckland Transport selected video analytics powered by HPE’s IDOL, a data analytics solution, which enables personnel to derive insights and patterns from massive amounts of real-time streaming video data.
