Traficon's Kristof Maddelein Traficon with the new Trafibot AID camera.
Traficon has brought several exciting new technologies to the ITS World Congress. Earlier this year, the company acquired Sumit, a provider of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology. Traficon has been working ever since to incorporate the Sumit technology into its own portfolio and visitors to its stand can see the result here – Eye-D, a dedicated Traficon camera product for intersection enforcement.
The company has also expanded its AID portfolio with the new VIP-PTZ, VIP-TX, and Trafibot. VIP-PTZ which has been designed to add automatic incident detection (AID) to pan-tilt-zoom cameras in order to improve road safety and mobility over a much longer viewing range than is possible with fixed cameras.
Typical applications for this product include hard shoulder monitoring and highway incident detection. The versatile VIP-PTZ can be combined with PTZ cameras that work either with or without preset positions. In the latter case, VIP-PTZ features automatic smart configuration of detection zones, which results in high detection performance, regardless of camera position.
Another innovation is the new VIP-TX solution that extends the functionality of Traficon’s field-proven VIP-T incident detection board for analogue cameras with powerful video encoding/streaming. VIP-TX can stream H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and MJPEG simultaneously.
Following this demand of decentralization even more, Traficon is also launching Trafibot, an all-in-one AID camera that combines high-performance camera optics and powerful video encoding/streaming with field-proven incident detection algorithms from Traficon.
