RailSight® – Trap & Drag Detection System

Increasing Safety and Security

What is It?

The Intelligent Vision System is computationally efficient in reducing data dimensionality in detecting objects on a train platform. It autonomously performs platform train interface (PTI) monitoring by detecting when a person or object is over the yellow line, helping to reduce vehicle dwell times.

What It Does

  • Detects the yellow line on a platform.
  • Detects when the train is in transit.
  • Detects where passengers and objects are on the platform (if they are over the yellow line.)
  • Sends alerts to drivers, staff and other stakeholders if someone is stuck in the gap.
  • Uses existing camera infrastructure.
  • Processes in real time, with low latency on a computer the size of a credit card (Raspberry Pi for example.)


Passengers (customers)

  • Improved safety at the PTI
  • Optimisation of their PTI experience


  • Increases driver’s experience and goes some way to reduce stress and pressure.
  • Assists the driver to maintain on-time services by reducing passenger boarding dwell time, further helping to reduce safety related incidents.

Train and Station Operators

  • Improved safety of passengers through a reduction in PTI FWI incidents.
  • Faster passenger boarding at the PTI can aid station operators in running a safer and quicker service.
  • (Side effect) improved passenger movement will help to reduce larger crowds and subsequently improving safety.
