Eric Toffin of Citilog with the XCam-p
Citilog is introducing a North American-compliant version of its XCam-p video detection sensor.
The new version of XCam-p – the ‘p’ stands for presence detection – follows an agreement with Signal Group, the parent company of Peek Traffic. Peek manufactures the cabinet interface unit for the system. Citilog’s previous version of XCam-p is used internationally but does not conform to US standards.
“We’ve always made the camera head sensor but until this collaboration we didn’t have an interface board that met North American standards for traffic cabinets,” said Irv Rosenblum, Citilog’s business manager for North America.
Citilog expects the new version – due to be available from the first quarter of 2015 – to be widely used in adaptive traffic management applications.
The company is also showing on its booth the XCam-Edge, which was revealed at Intertraffic in Amsterdam last March.
The device can cover a wide range of applications including intersection control, traffic data collection and incident detection. It provides more processing power to the sensor and a wide dynamic range, as well as H264 encoding and HD video streaming.
