PRISMATICA (PRoactive Integrated systems for Security Management by Technological, Institutional and Communication Assistance)a system for multiple-sensor surveillance in key public transport networks has been described. The design was closely inspired by what public transport operators are familiar with, i.e. the concepts of distributed sensors, distributed monitoring and decision making in a control room environment. Results have been presented that demonstrate the capability of automatic systems to detect potentially dangerous situations and of a distributed system that can promptly alert operators providing multiple sensor views of the events. Real-world demonstrators on key sites have demonstrated the feasibility of the approach.
