Quanergy Solutions, a provider of 3D LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) security solutions, was chosen by a large municipality in California to increase pedestrian safety in the city’s underground railways where fatality risks and costly liability issues were of growing concern.

According to the company, the city’s management had been grappling with a substantial number of missed alarms within its underground railroad system due to the intricate terrain and challenging lighting conditions.

The absence of alarms when individuals trespassed onto train tracks posed a significant liability issue, endangering lives and increasing operating expenses.

Traditional video surveillance systems had further proven ineffective in these environments due to inconsistent lighting and various obstructions that made it difficult to maintain a consistent field of view.

A new solution

By deploying Q-track, a seamlessly integrated solution that combines long-range 3D LiDAR sensors with advanced perception software, Quanergy says that it has enabled the hyper-accurate detection and tracking of individuals in the city’s underground railroad system.

Quanergy’s solution also effectively eliminates alarm fatigue by significantly reducing false alarms.

This enables operators to focus on real threats and receive actionable insights with hyper-accuracy, ensuring that no urgent alarms are missed, averting possible injuries or even fatalities.

According to Quanergy, the city now reports that they have 100% accurate detection when pedestrians are on train tracks.
