How the Taxi Security Camera System (TSCS) works
- The Taxi Security Camera System (TSCS) for conventional taxis
consists of a dual internal cameras* fitted above the rear
vision mirror and an external camera above the driver's door.
- The Taxi Security Camera System for maxi taxis consists of
2–3 internal cameras (depending on seating layout) and an
external camera fitted above the driver's door.
- All cameras are fitted with infrared lighting so images
can be taken in any lighting situation.
- Images are captured continuously. The camera also has 'manual'
and 'duress' image capture triggers.
- Duress alarm triggered events are stored for 168 operational
hours before they are overwritten by the system. When the duress
alarm button is pushed, the camera takes images at a higher rate
and stores these in the system. The images taken before the duress
alarm button was pushed are also stored.
- The camera doesn't need resetting after an accidental duress
alarm. This has been a problem with other systems. There is also an
automatic reset function in the event of a drop or loss of vehicle
- Global Positioning System (GPS) and mapping software are
included, with a separate—independent—Global
Positioning System antennae. This allows each image to be marked
with Global Positioning System coordinates.
- The memory module is fireproof and waterproof, and allows for a
quick swap-out in regional and remote areas if needed.
- A secure hidden detailed log file will keep track of every
access and every download.
