Abstract: Although public transport remains the safest mode of transport, it has been the object of numerous terrorist attacks, mainly because of the high concentration of passengers, the criticality of mobility in modern society and the difficulties in applying effective screening or other protection measures. Video surveillance is one of the major instruments to increase security. However, in case of major accidents or security events like the London Metro or the Madrid bombing attacks, classical CCTV based surveillance is of little use, apart from forensic investigations. ASPIS is a novel smart surveillance system that was conceived soon after the London bombing events in order to answer the above issues. It is a scalable, modular, surveillance / alarm system designed to provide prompt, complete, pertinent information for the management of emergency situations in public means of transport without compromising citizen’s right to privacy. In fact, it records and transmits information only on the occurrence of an emergency event.
