Korea Railroad Research Institute (KRRI) is developing an intelligent surveillance system which enables rapid grasping of situations and taking measures by preventing various accidents within the operation section and by supervising urgent and dangerous conditions intelligently when any accident and disaster occurred in order to provide passive services within the section of existing urban transit actively. Intelligent surveillance system analyzes the location and pattern of things by itself by digitalizing imaging information of surveillance camera and enables vulnerability occurred due to the management by person to be replaced and supplemented by operating alarm and access blocking systems or by informing current situations to the security personnel immediately in case where any dangerous situation is occurred. Although there already exists operation issues, such as the legal problems in accordance with the infringement of personal privacy and technical issues like high-resolution camera and broadband transmission media, and the configuration of management scenario which must be built in consideration of violations possible to be occurred in advance to build intelligent surveillance systems in Korea, it is forecast that the demand to build intelligent surveillance systems will be much higher in the future due to the good materials such as the request for a nextgeneration railway management system, growing operational costs in accordance with the increase in labor costs for security, promotion of the revision to laws to make the image of a surveillance camera beneficial as legal evidence, raising the perception of the security industry and customers.
