Hitachi Review

Highlight

Although life in cities equipped with a variety of social infrastructure and facilities is convenient, residents are exposed to a large number of threats, such as terrorism, crime, and urban disasters. Hitachi has compiled the requirements for protecting cities from these threats, and provides solutions for ongoing implementation of appropriate responses. This article describes some examples of the work that Hitachi has done in the USA and Singapore on technology and solutions in this area with features such as an integrated monitoring center that enables monitoring and response measures for entire cities, a vehicle screening system, and an explosives trace detection system. Hitachi will continue to help create safe and secure cities by providing robust and advanced security products and services.
