Common safeguards have limited capability to maintain safety because they are a kind of passive systems, i.e. a station operator or someone should monitor and detect the event when an emergency occurs. It is very difficult to deal with the accidents instantly. Vision based Monitoring System detects possible accidents on railway platform, and effectively manages that situation. The system monitors all of the track area by using multiple stereo cameras, and immediately reports detection results with alarm to operator. Besides, the system automatically stops train, and broadcasts for passenger's safety because train stop by manual operation has a limit to emergency stop because of operator's reaction time. In this paper, we present the test results and analyze the detection performance of the system.
