Forward facing camera

Minimal service disruption with high definition driver-eye view CCTV footage

eyeTrain - no surround

Increase safety and operational reliability.


The footage taken by the digital eyeTrain ruggedised Forward facing camera
is used to investigate operational incidents, including:

  • Signal Passed at Danger (SPADs)
  • Suicides and other fatalities
  • Near misses (workforce)
  • Trespass, graffiti, stone throwing
  • Vegetation surveys
  • Trackside litter
  • Equipment and materials left by the track
  • Confirmation of track works
  • Confirmation of the signal position that the driver has observed.

Stoppage time is minimised by immediately and securely playing footage
to on-board monitors, a connected laptop or transmitted to a central control centre
via eyebos or third party services, allowing swift decisions to be made.

The collected data can be accessed and reviewed by third parties such as the Transport Police, Network Rail, Her Majesty's Railway Inspectorate (HMRI) or other stakeholders.
