The Winning Peek Traffic team celebrate their success
Netherlands/UK company Peek Traffic’s ImFlow policy-based UTC system is the Overall Winner in the 2012 Intertraffic Innovation Awards, announced at yesterday’s official opening ceremony. The judges saw it as a simple tool for controlling urban traffic management on the basis of policy priorities, so closing the gap between decision-making urban authorities and the operators of their control systems.

ImFlow is a policy-based adaptive system introduced for straightforward configuration to reflect a given city’s current traffic management policies, and to be easily understandable by its traffic engineers. The programming concept is designed to enable direct entering into the system of policy requirements (eg for smooth traffic flows) and constraints (eg those needed for traffic safety), to allow its adaptive algorithm to optimise signal timings in real-time. ImFlow also won the individual ITS/Traffic management category award.

The other individual category winners are:

Infrastructure  
Langmatz, Bluemove light pole
Designed for direct installation into urban street lighting systems, this avoids the need for additional construction work or housings to create EV charge points.
Jury verdict. It addresses the challenge of developing sufficient EV charging infrastructure to meet the anticipated growth in EV production. Installation into existing roadside furniture is cost-effective, and avoids planning regulation issues and visual impacts on the urban environment.

Safety
Kapsch TrafficCom, Automatic Camera Calibration (ACC).
Developed for the Kapsch Incident Detection System, this is potentially available for other companies’products.  
Jury verdict: This affords significant speed, accuracy, cost and safety benefits in the calibration of incident detection cameras, particularly in hazardous locations eg tunnels. It involves mounting specially-developed equipment, capable of fitting into a flight case-sized container, onto a vehicle running through the road section being calibrated,
