France’s Rouen Transit Authority Selects Networked Video

France’s city of Rouen has deployed Verint’s networked video solution across a portion of its network of buses and trams to ensure a safe and secure travel environment for tourists and local residents.

As one of France’s most historic cities, Rouen attracts visitors from around the world each year to its museums, churches and other historic sites including the site of the execution of Joan of Arc, the burial place of Richard the Lion-Hearted and some of France’s greatest works of art. Rouen’s citywide system of buses and trams transports more than 58 million passengers each year to these and other attractions. The Verint solution will enable transit personnel to monitor the safety and security of passengers as well as deter vandalism and crime. The solution will be delivered in conjunction with Verint partner SLE.
