City of Atlanta’s MARTA Selects BRS Labs as Provider of Artificial Intelligence Video Analytics to Enhance Public Safety

Behavioral Recognition Systems, Inc. (BRS Labs), creator of AISight®, the artificial intelligence-based analytics solution that teaches itself to recognize and alert on unexpected patterns within massive volumes of data, continues its rapid growth in the mass transit industry as more agencies choose to implement the award-winning behavioral recognition software as part of their public safety initiatives.

Public safety is a critical issue facing mass transit agencies, many of which serve hundreds of millions of customers every year. The potential for a major crisis to occur is always looming in the background and it is a concern that must be addressed. The ability to monitor rail rights of way, boarding platforms, sidewalks, streets, and thousands of passengers in transit at any given point in time can seem daunting, if not impossible.

BRS Labs is paving a new path for mass transit agencies to address public safety issues with AISight, an intelligent video analytics solution that teaches itself to recognize and alert on unexpected behavior across any camera’s field of view. Its patented, award-winning technology improves safety, security, and operational efficiency by helping organizations recognize and respond to threats in real time, as opposed to after they occur.

“Our goal is to provide a first class experience for our passengers by integrating a layered security design,” said MARTA’s Sargent Aston Green. “AISight gives us with the ability to more effectively monitor obscure areas for abnormal activities by directing security personnel with real time alerts, thus greatly reducing response times to incidents. Constant surveillance of secure areas is proven to minimize the potential for attacks and breaches; AISight gives us the ability to improve surveillance through artificial intelligence.”

MARTA, the principal rapid-transit system in the Atlanta metropolitan area, is one of many leading mass transit agencies that use BRS Labs AISight to improve security and operational efficiency. The eighth-largest rapid transit system in the United States by ridership and currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, MARTA operates a network of bus routes linked to a rapid transit system consisting of 48 miles (77 km) of rail track with 38 train stations. MARTA also operates a separate paratransit service for disabled customers. As of 2013, the average total daily ridership for the system (bus and rail) was 415,600 passengers.

“We are excited to announce that MARTA has selected AISight to enhance their public safety initiatives,” said Keith Drummond, Executive Vice President of Sales for BRS Labs. “AISight works with MARTA’s existing camera system to deliver real time alerts so that safety and operations personnel can work with greater precision by focusing on areas where potentially dangerous activity is taking place. We have experienced exponential success in the mass transit industry and are proud that six of the nine largest mass transit agencies in the United States trust BRS Labs to help keep their passengers safe.”

AISight is part of BRS Labs’ AISight Everywhere™ platform, a centralized system with modules for intelligent video analytics, intelligent alerting and operations assistance for SCADA, network security, Big Data analytics, building services and other core business functions.
