For German machine vision specialist Vitronic
, smart traffic networks improve livability in urban environments and help to create smart cities. The company is here to demonstrate how its broad portfolio of intelligent traffic systems has a part to play in shaping these smart networks: Vitronic products and solutions presented here centre on road safety, security and road user charging.
A highlight for visitors to the Vitronic stand is the visualisation of an optimal city traffic network, which was developed in cooperation with the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. This smart city vision is based on information and data acquisition from traffic monitoring, combined with environmental and weather data output.
With a strong focus on the Vision Zero campaign, Vitronic aims to contribute to the goal of zero deaths on our roads. Providing applications for speed monitoring (average and spot) and red light enforcement, there are significant traffic safety benefits and positive outcomes for urban traffic flow. The company’s lidar-based enforcement system, the Poliscan FM1 works for all application scenarios.
For electronic toll collection, Vitronic's TollChecker application enables authorities to levy optimal pricing on road usage and thus regulate traffic volume and encourage a more efficient use of the roads. TollChecker is an automated toll collection and enforcement system that identifies and classifies vehicles, facilitating flexible charging systems, depending on vehicle size and registration.
In the field of security, Vitronic is showing its Poliscan Surveillance systems which are based on automated number plate recognition (ANPR). This is a vital technical solution which improves security using surveillance to detect crime movement and potential threats. It also opens up possibilities for intelligent traffic flow control.
