January 9, 2008 - Canberra Bus Project Successfully Completed

DTI Group successfully completes
Canberra Bus Project two weeks ahead of schedule


Awarded in August 2007, the project was a major security undertaking which delivered a 'whole of fleet' video surveillance system across all of Canberra’s 340 buses. Each bus was equipped with DTI's latest Mobile Digital Recorder (MDR-4) and between 2 and five high resolution colour cameras. A microphone located in the forward part of the bus is available to capture audio/voice communications under 'duress' or emergency situations.

The scope of works also included DTI's GPS based vehicle location system, wireless data communications infrastructure and DTI's fleet management software suite. DTI's wireless infrastructure and back-end CCTV management system centralises and coordinates the bus CCTV network and allows video evidence to be recovered from buses through an on-line automated CCTV 'booking' system.

The Canberra project further builds on DTI's success across Australia in providing advanced city-wide transit surveillance operations in half of Australia’s capital cities. With over 8,500 cameras now installed in buses and trains in Australia, DTI is well positioned as the major transit surveillance provider in Australia.

CEO Richard Johnson said: “We are pleased that we were able to complete the Canberra bus project ahead of schedule. The system is now being used extensively with the solution providing significant benefits through the easy management of equipment, video retrieval and video storage”.
