The Eye-D camera for intersection enforcement
Traficon is bringing some exciting new technologies to the ITS World Congress and two of them are of particular note. 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 will see the result – Eye-D, a dedicated Traficon camera product for intersection enforcement.
The other major innovation at Traficon’s stand is the new 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.
Meanwhile, Traficon says it is looking forward to developing the parking management market with new products and capabilities. At the ITS World Congress in Vienna, Traficon will show how its existing and new technology can help its customers achieve intelligent parking areas.
