Public transit authorities in Paris are testing new methods to tighten security and prevent attacks before they happen—but some might feel they’re watching a little too closely.
The new system would incorporate 40,000 surveillance cameras, along with a software that can detect ‘suspicious’ behaviour and locate unattended packages.
The move comes after the deadly attacks on Paris last month, but officials say they must also determine the ‘social acceptability’ of these methods.

New surveillance being tested by France’s SNCF tracks could pick up on the subtleties of even an inconspicuous attacker.
The software tracks changes in body temperature, raised voices, and jerky movements, along with heightened levels of anxiety.
The security teams are also working with cameras that can detect packages that have been left unattended for too long.
‘We are testing to work out what flags up people with a negative intention, an aggressor, or a groper,’ SNCF secretary Stephane Volant told AFP. The experiments are fully backed by the law.
In addition to cameras, security gates will be installed at Paris and Lille stations for the Thalys cross-Europe railroads before the end of the month.
