Citilog innovation in smart sensors
Citilog, a global leader in AID (automatic incident detection), will use Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014 to introduce XcamEdge, a new innovation in the company’s XCam smart sensor series.
Initially developed and designed for intersection control applications such as presence detection with XCam-p, the XCam range quickly expanded, with the XCam-ng, to smart detection for intersections with queue monitoring and anti-gridlock applications. Indeed, the latest success of the XCam-ng is the smart traffic control system in Sochi for the Winter Olympics allowing the city to cope with the massive influx of vehicle traffic in the city.
The XCamEdge will provide more processing power to the sensor and wide dynamic range as well as H264 encoding and HD video stream. The device will be able to cover a wide range of applications covering intersection control, traffic data collection and incident detection.
Citlog says the performance and design of the XCamEdge introduces a new paradigm for large deployments of automatic incident detection systems: ease of installation and maintenance make it an extremely cost-effective solution.
Among the top applications of the XCamEdge is the smart solution for wrong way detection and prevention on freeway access ramps.
