||The transit vehicle shall perform local monitoring of video or audio surveillance data collected inside of transit vehicles, and identify potential incidents or threats based on received processing parameters.
||The transit vehicle shall output an indication of potential incidents or threats and the processed video or audio information to the center along with the vehicle’s current location.
||The transit vehicle shall detect potential threats via sensors for chemical agents, toxic industrial chemicals, biological agents, explosives, and radiation.
||The transit vehicle shall detect potential threats via object detection sensors (e.g. metal detectors).
||The transit vehicle shall output an indication of potential incidents or threats and the processed sensor information to the center along with the vehicle’s current location.
||The transit vehicle shall accept sensor control data to allow remote control of the sensors.
||The transit vehicle shall monitor and output surveillance and sensor equipment status and fault indications.
||The transit vehicle shall accept emergency inputs from either the transit vehicle operator or a traveler through such interfaces as panic buttons, silent or audible alarms, etc.
||The transit vehicle shall output reported emergencies to the center.
||The transit vehicle shall receive acknowledgments of the emergency request from the center and output this acknowledgment to the transit vehicle operator or to the travelers.
||The transit vehicle shall be capable of receiving an emergency message for broadcast to the travelers or to the transit vehicle operator.
||The transit vehicle shall be capable of disabling or enabling the transit vehicle based on commands from the center or authentic inputs from the transit vehicle operator.
