At one of the world’s most advanced motor racing circuits, a networked video solution from Bosch ensures the safety and security of more than 700,000 visitors a year.
Customized Solution for special requirements
A major venue for motorsport and track events, driving safety courses, and open-air concerts, the Hockenheimring south of Mannheim covers nearly 97 hectares and boasts a motor racing circuit nearly five kilometers long. The grandstands offer seating for 120,000 spectators.
Both people and property naturally need to be optimally protected. A video solution planned and implemented by Bosch helps to prevent, investigate, and respond to vandalism, theft and other criminal acts.
A video system with more than 64 IP cameras monitors the entrances and exits, the grandstands and adjacent areas used by spectators, and the entire circuit. The custom-tailored solution is designed to watch large areas while accurately identifying rapidly moving objects from a considerable distance. High-resolution images are a must, also in areas that cannot be observed from the outside and/or have difficult lighting conditions.
Everything in view and readily accessible
All of the equipment, including mobile cameras and webcams, is networked via a central DIVAR IP 7000 video management system to make sure that all relevant areas can be observed live. They can be quickly accessed by police when required. The management of the Hockenheimring also uses them to document long-term construction projects and to monitor the 2,000-square-meter motorsport museum, for which Bosch experts additionally implemented a fire detection and intrusion detection solution to safeguard the 300 historic racecars and motorcycles on display there.
