The Moscow subway is testing video cameras on turnstiles

A pilot project to test video cameras with facial recognition system on turnstiles started in the Moscow subway, according to the publication of RBK. Video surveillance appeared on all turnstiles of the metro station "Oktyabrskoe Pole". The company VisionLabs is participating in the project together with the metro.

Video cameras are located on the stands of turnstiles at the level of an adult’s face. The green signal lights up when a ticket is read. Video cameras are installed on turnstiles, working both at the entrance and at the exit.

Today, cameras are for security purposes only. Besides, the facial recognition system in the Moscow subway began to work in March of the previous year. The functionality of the system is designed to recognize up to 20 faces per second and compare them with photos from the Federal Inquiry database. In case of detection of the wanted by the system, the corresponding signal is sent to the mobile complex of the duty police officer.
