The complexities and variety of transportation infrastructure produces a wide range of different gas and fire hazards that pose significant safety risks to the people and vehicles that utilize them.
Enclosed areas such as vehicle bays, underground mass transit systems, and aircraft hangers are particularly suspect to gas and fire hazards due to the potential buildup that can occur unless actively monitored.
Gas Hazard Detection
If hazardous gases are accidentally leaked, they will rapidly disperse throughout an enclosed area. Implementing the right gas detectors will be necessary to monitor the presence of hazardous gases, issue and taking the specific actions necessary via an alarm system.
Automation and Integration Strategies
Detecting the presence of flame or hazardous gases is just the first step. Detection needs to integrate with various alarms and external systems to enable the right response specific to the transportation infrastructure. This can require connectivity to be established with Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and facility automation systems to trigger ventilation subsystems and other risk mitigation measures.
