Automatic incident detection is getting more and more powerful with development of new video hardware and software. Among recent advances, Citilog has signed a new partnership deal to put the company’s incident detection software inside ‘smart cameras’ supplied by Axis.
“This partnership will allow us to offer automatic incident detection via video analytics all in one box. The goal is to provide services for highway authorities without them having to buy any new in-house equipment,” says Citilog business development manager Francois Lagadec.
Services on offer from Citilog include intersection control and traffic data collection via arrays of sensors and video analytics. “Using this technology we are able to suggest ways of optimising traffic flow, such as alteration of traffic signal timing. We are improving the functionality and possibilities of what can be done with video analytics all the time,” Lagadec says.
