Odakyu Electric trials Nokia’s AI-based scene analytics
Japanese company Odakyu Electric Railway is trailing Nokia’s artificial intelligence (AI)-based SpaceTime scene analytics for railway crossing safety.
Nokia Bell Labs developed SpaceTime scene analytics. It applies machine-learning-based AI to available camera images and can detect abnormal events.
It also analyses available image feeds generated by conventional railway crossing cameras. This allows it to identify potential issues in real-time.
Running on edge computing resources, it minimises the required bandwidth at remote sites with limited connectivity.
Nokia Japan head John Harrington said: “Odakyu Electric Railway is renowned for being an early adopter of new technology and this trial illustrates the role that AI can play in delivering enhanced levels of vigilance.”
SpaceTime scene analytics can provide real-time alerts for unauthorised entry into remote facilities.
