Share an article about using surveillance system to improve highway security. I think this system and technology also can be used in other transport systems, like railroad.

24/7 Surveillance for Highway Tunnel Security
China's booming economy has led the country to invest more on traffic infrastructure which has created the need for traffic management and security monitoring systems overseen by video walls displays in control rooms. Among all the traffic monitoring systems, those monitoring traffic safety in highway tunnels are especially mission-and-life critical.

A large system integrator customer in China submitted a bid for a highway tunnel surveillance control room project which comprised of a video surveillance system, an emergency operations system, a vehicle recognition system, and a traffic management system. And crucially at the center, a video wall was needed in the main control room that was able to display all data and video coming from these systems in real time, with advanced warning capabilities that could draw an operators'attention to the most critical images.

this post reminds me of two incidents:

(a)the early installation of a computer in a boardroom - I'm not sure that it was the first installation - but Lyons introduced it to track weather forecasts and so direct our deliveries of ice cream; with great success I understood. Later they rented-out computer time and it was quickly discovered that a supplementary computer was necessary for a board to cope with the data that came flooding in.

(b) a popular writer of the time - named Lin Yutang - compared the Western method of constructing a railway tunnel with a Chinese method. We started on both sides of the mountain and celebrated when the two tunnels connected; the Chinese likewise started on both sides of the mountain and celebrated when they finished with two distinct tunnels - they had given employment to twice as many workers for twice the time and ended up with two valuable tunnels instead of one!

This is the only sane way to build transport tunnels; i.e. put opposing streams of traffic in dedicated tunnels.
