Boris Wagner with the Vitronic camera system
Safety, security, road user charging, and how it all comes together as the backbone of a smart road network, are the topics that German machine vision specialist Vitronic is addressing here at Intertraffic.
The company is showcasing how its product range can be applied to a host of applications, from speed and red light enforcement, average speed enforcement, wanted cars search and border control to electronic toll collection (ETC).
Among new developments being shown is an advanced red light enforcement system that can detect several different typical violations at intersections and differentiate between legal and illegal right turns.
It can be equipped with optical traffic light detection, eliminating the need to physically connect the system. Visitors to the Vitronic stand can also see the next step in average speed enforcement with enhanced vehicle classification and mobile deployment options.
Also on display is the new Compact City Housing and Tollchecker Roadside. The Compact City Housing allows Lidar-based traffic monitoring from a height of up to three metres, keeping the system out of reach from vandalism and minimising its footprint at the roadside. It supports multi-lane, multiple vehicle tracking and classification, as well as ANPR functionalities.
Tollchecker Roadside is a new alternative to gantry-based ETC systems. It uses machine vision technology to precisely determine vehicles’ dimensions and identity from the side of the road.
In addition, Vitronic is showing its back office software portfolio for remote system monitoring and accessing, case data processing and traffic data management.
