In recent years, the solid growth of the urban population has led to a surge in demand for services, creating huge pressure; especially for public services such as buses and taxis. Public transportation services are closely related to the everyday life of urban citizens.
During the economic downturn, the pressure of survival is soaring. Phenomena such as late night robberies, rude drivers/customers, unfair taxi rates and late arrivals of services are now more common than ever. According to multiple social surveys, commuting has become a major headache for most urban citizens. Therefore, finding an efficient and reliable solution to control and manage this situation is critical.
Dahua Mobile Solution
Dahua has created an advanced mobile solution to enable drivers, customers, and taxi and bus companies to deal with safety threats and bad user experience. The solution will save time and energy, but also deliver more effective and efficient service. The end-to-end solution uses reliable video recorder, integrated platform and intelligent technologies to ensure buses and taxis are well guarded and efficiently run.
Dahua Mobile Solution consists of front-end camera, recorder, server in control centre and other parts. Dahua launched 3 series to meet different needs – IP, HDCVI and Analogue. The recorders come in different types, including wedge dome, mini eyeball and mini dome. The recorder, with maximum resolution of 5MP, supports IR and IP67. Aside from recording and local storage, the recorder is capable of exchanging data with the platform through 3G/4G/WIFI, including real-time sending video, GPS, alerts etc.
Accessories for applications
Reports of this kind help operating companies to optimise driving routes and therefore generate more profit
Dahua offers various accessories to support different applications, including hand microphone to support two-way communication, panic button to deal with emergencies, fuel level sensor to collect fuel consumption and swipe card reader for drivers to check on work attendance. Dahua also provides a 7-inch screen, audio pick up, protection box and so on. The DSS server is the brain of the Dahua Mobile Solution; supporting maximum 2000 channels connection, the server is mainly utilised to control and manage the mobile recorder. There are two versions of the server – pure software as well as software and hardware integration to meet the different needs of different customers.
Three essential aspects
In order to better fulfill the actual demand for different applications, the mobile solution is subdivided into Bus Mobile Solution, Logistics Mobile Solution, School Car Mobile Solution, Law Enforcement Vehicle Mobile Solution among others, covering most mobile surveillance businesses. The Dahua mobile solution was designed with three essential aspects.
Automatic backup via Wi-Fi
Wireless signal in the vehicle is automatically switched from 4G to Wi-Fi when the vehicle returns to the station. Then video in the recorder will be automatically uploaded to the customer centre at a speed of 10MBps, which will be accelerated to 15MBps in the near future. Wi-Fi-based automatic backup is characterised by high speed, low cost and being labour-free, features well in line with the trend of backup methodology in customer centres.
Dahua mobile total solution provides automatic video storage and smart detection under any circumstances
People counting through IPC
The people counting function of IPC is used to count the number of people that have used a vehicle in a set period of time. Through wireless internet, the statistics are then sent from the recorder to the platform, which generates reports based on the flow of people across different time periods. Reports of this kind help operating companies to optimise driving routes and therefore generate more profit.
Driving Behaviour Regulation via Geo Fence
The Driving Behaviour Regulation works alongside the platform in the customer centre. Users can define an area on the digital map in the platform and make some restrictions in that area, such as driving speed, allowed or forbidden to drive in and so on, with the aim of regulating driving behaviour. This is widely applied in cash carrier and oil tanker projects.
Using advanced technology (IPC, behaviour detection, geo fence, cloud storage diagram, etc.), Dahua mobile total solution provides automatic video storage and smart detection under any circumstances, even at night or in poor weather conditions. With success in many countries, such as Mexico, Turkey, Italy and Thailand, this solution has proven efficient and effective in releasing the pressure of urban public transportation and improving user experience. In 2013, the City Bus Project in Russia used more than 8000 sets of Dahua Mobile DVRs.
