Helsinki City Transport selected Teleste’s platform to drive improved situational awareness and safer travelling across the Helsinki metro system. The 2 million euro (US$2.27 million) deployment of the platform will be started in 2019 and completed at the end of 2020.

During recent years, the Helsinki Metro has undergone several upgrades and major extensions. The metro includes more than 20 stations in Helsinki and its neighboring cities and serves the capital region of Finland with hundreds of thousands of daily rides. Every year, more than 80 million passengers and commuters enjoy travelling in the system, which forms the northernmost metro in the world.

The platform will develop the metro’s response capabilities and ensure a high service level during possible security failures, alerts and states of emergency, as well as in other complex or critical situations.

"Helsinki Metro is being developed to bring seamless mobility to the growing metropolitan area. At Helsinki City Transport, our mission is to continue building an increasingly effective and highly functional metro system that provides a safe and attractive travelling experience for our customers in their everyday life," said Ville Lehmuskoski, CEO, Helsinki City Transport.

The S-AWARE platform collects real-time information from various subsystems, data sources and sensory inputs, and displays a unified and real-time view of the whole operational infrastructure. In addition, the platform can be used to predefine automated operating procedures for efficient and smart incident management, ensuring that correct action is immediately taken when unexpected incidents occur.

The reporting, debriefing and training tools ensure that the system can be used to project future events and be prepared for exceptional situations. Teleste's deployment will also enable efficient use of the system for multiple other operators, including the police, fire and rescue forces; Helsinki Regional Transport Authority; and the cities of Helsinki and Espoo.
