Axis Communications’ network cameras will be installed in buses for municipal transport in Prague. The 3,500 AXIS 209FD-R Network Cameras will be part of a system for monitoring each vehicle’s interior, improving passenger security and providing evidence to help solve incidents of vandalism and other crimes. The installation started in November 2009 and the whole installation will be finished in 2014.

Axis network cameras will be installed of 620 buses for municipal transport in Prague. The new buses will have a modern design and meet strict environmental criteria.
”Several transportation authorities have chosen network video products to improve safety and security in their transit systems, or to view and share real-time information on traffic and road conditions, says Ray Mauritsson, President of Axis Communications. “Axis’ network video products have been installed in many demanding environments, including buses in Stockholm, trains in Zurich and subway cars in Moscow.”

The AXIS 209FD-R Network Camera is a palm-sized, discreet, rugged network camera specifically for the tough environments found in mass transit vehicles. Its durable transparent cover provides excellent protection against dust, humidity and vibrations. The small built-in heater eliminates condensation on the lens or cover. The cameras are designed for easy installation and can withstand the tough and changing conditions in buses.
