Today’s high volume of traffic on our roads is being more and more assisted by Intelligent Traffic Systems.
Things like identifying traffic violations, detecting objects on the highways, general traffic monitoring and efficient toll collection, all help to keep our roads moving and more importantly safe!
- Enforcement – Enforcement systems are used to detect a range of offences such as speeding, red light infringement and lane violation. The goal of these systems is to change driver behaviour and make roads safer. Cameras for these applications are typically based on high sensitivity sensors starting from 2MP at 25fps or more.
- Toll Collection – Cameras are used to read number plates of vehicles passing through toll gates and then electronically deduct toll fees from the account associated with each plate. The major advantage of this process is that Electronic Toll Collection can be done on moving vehicles, making it very quick and efficient compared with vehicle stopping to pay tolls. Another common toll enforcement application is where cameras are used to identify the size of a vehicle so that an appropriate toll rate can be paid or prevent fraud by capturing licence plates of non-paying vehicles.
