His Highness also followed a presentation of the camera systems with artificial intelligence technology, which he adopted at the Expo 2020 station, and it contains multiple analysis systems, including: the system for monitoring the number of people during entry, monitoring the wrong direction, as well as the dispersal or sudden movement system, and the entry system for prohibited sites, And monitoring of suspicious objects, in addition to the system of waiting for long periods.

Station Laboratory

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum inspected the laboratory of the Hamdan Smart Station for Simulation and Training, concerned with the smart applications and tools that are tested and trained on, which allows the use of modern and smart technologies within the needs of transportation security.

The laboratory hall includes five platforms, the first one is concerned with harnessing artificial intelligence in the service of security tasks through the face recognition system, which is characterized by nine smart features. The identification time for wanted persons has been reduced from five working hours to a few minutes, and the second platform includes smart tools used in managing Transportation security, which includes 25 smart helmets and 10 smart glasses, and these smart tools have been used to confront the emerging corona virus in 24 locations, where they can monitor the temperature of public transport visitors in record time, with a maximum of 200 people per minute.

The platform also includes the smart paging system, which consists of electrical buttons that connect to a wristwatch worn by the security official, and distribute to important sites in stations and officials, and when the button is pressed, an alert reaches the watch at the calling site from a distance of 100 meters.

The third platform includes drones that are used in crowd management in various events and crises, and it is equipped with thermal cameras that can shoot at any time, day or night, to detect potential hazards on the railways, and it also has a feature for close-up remote photography, and it has been equipped with a loudspeaker for guidance. In multiple languages.

In order to achieve smart utilization from the aircraft, it has been equipped with live broadcast systems in the Transportation Security Operations Room, and linked to a ground station that provides it with continuous energy while in the air, for a period of up to eight continuous hours, for comprehensive coverage of any event or event.

This project is considered a new security breakthrough in the region.

The fifth platform of the Hamdan Smart Station laboratory is devoted to specialized teams, namely the "SWAT" forces in transportation security, and concerned with rapid intervention in the face of potential crises.

Future hall

The visit of His Highness the Crown Prince of Dubai included the Future Hall in the Hamdan Smart Station for Simulation and Training, which was built in line with the leadership's vision for smart transformation in various fields, as the Transportation Security Department in Dubai contributed to a qualitative leap in the field of specialized training, as the first entity to use virtual reality technology for the sector. Public transportation, and security scenarios were designed with virtual reality technology in 360-degree imaging, simulating real work sites to deal with various security and criminal situations that may occur in the public transport sector, as six security scenarios were designed, including: riot, suicide bombing, bag bomb, and theft Ticketing machines.

In the Future Hall, which includes 20 seats and is equipped with virtual reality glasses, His Highness continued a presentation of a case of a booby-trapped bag, through which the trainee would be trained to simulate the situation and identify the necessary procedures to deal with the situation to preserve lives and property.
