- With these 5 new installations, which will be operational before year-end, there will be 27 level crossings that have this advanced technology to enhance safety.
- Over the five years that the system has been in operation, it has supervised the passage of more than 2 million trains, contributing to a perfect zero train-vehicle collision
begiCROSSING, the intelligent artificial vision system, developed by Begirale Controlling Risk, DOMINION’s artificial vision area, will be installed in another 5 level crossings of the Basque railway infrastructure manager, Euskal Trenbide Sarea (ETS) with the aim of improving safety at these critical points, where the railroad interacts with road vehicles and pedestrians. This measure joins those adopted in recent years and in which begiCROSSING was successfully installed in the most dangerous level crossings of the network. With these 5 new installations, which will be operational before year-end, there will already be 27 ETS level crossings that have this advanced technology to optimize their safety.
The level crossings that have incorporated this unique technology are located in: La Cadena, Sangroniz and Urikarreta, all belonging to the Lutxana – Sondika line, Sukarrieta belonging to the Amorebieta – Bermeo line and San Miguel on the Bilbao – Donostia line.
From now on, these 5 level crossings, already equipped with barriers, light and acoustic signals, will have reinforced safety thanks to this innovative Artificial Intelligence system that will monitor the movement of vehicles and people through these points. The system will generate warnings and alarms when anomalous situations occur, which will be transmitted both to the management system installed in the command post and to the level crossing itself. In this way, it will be possible to act on the signaling systems of the LC by modifying the signal and alerting the train driver of the existence of an incident.
Over the five years that the system has been in operation, it has supervised the passage of more than 2 million trains, contributing to a perfect zero train-vehicle collision at the level crossings where it is installed.
begiCROSSING is an automatic anomaly and incident detection system based in the analysis of video signals in real time. For this, one or several cameras are used to capture the danger zone of the level crossing. The captured images are processed in real time and allow determining alterations in the normal operating sequences of the level crossing or the traffic that crosses it, determining an alarm or event in case of detecting any risk situation.
In early 2021 Dominion completed the SIL 3 certification process of the begiCROSSING technology. The “Obstacle Detector” version of the product thus became the first Artificial Vision-based system in the world to achieve this certification in the railway environment, opening the door to the widespread use of this type of technology in this sector.
