The camera’s steel housing is rated IP68 for water tightness and there are no internal running gears to foul up. There is even an external lens wiper and the lens window is heated for climates that experience freezing temperatures. Inteox enables app developers, system integrators and other Bosch partners to develop customer-specific apps or easily customise security solutions with no restrictions or boundaries. For transportation agencies, the cameras provide vehicle and vehicle type detection, as well as vulnerable road users including pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclist.
Inteox combines built-in intelligent video analytics from Bosch, a commonly-used open Operating System provided by Azena and the ability to securely add software apps at a later date. Thanks to the fully open principle, system integrators are free to add apps available in the application store, making it quick and simple to customise solutions.
The system can create a detection box where a vehicle’s passage is timed; a slowing down of vehicles indicates congestion ahead of the area, explained Joel White, product owner for intelligent traffic solutions within Bosch. This triggers an alert sent to vehicles where drivers view on an onboard screen the congested area and they can change their route. Meanwhile, the Bosch systems also sends an alert to road-side variable message signs indicating congestion ahead and posts a slower speed.
