Incident detection innovations
Kapsch automatic camera calibration
Kapsch is using Intertraffic for the relaunch of its incident detection system (IDS) products. The company claims that with its IDS 2.0 system, its image processing specialists have taken the world of incident detection to a new level, and points to what it says are three revolutionary new components - IDS ALVis, ACC and IMP as an indication of how advanced the system now is.
IDS ALVis - Alert Visualisation, provides a new way of dealing with the massive amount of alarms that a tunnel operator has to handle during major incidents. It offers prediction of incidents, a review function to replay them, access to both live and stored video from the tunnel and a smart user interface.
Meanwhile, IDS ACC - Automatic Camera Calibration, is a revolutionary and easy way of calibrating cameras for the Kapsch IDS. In the past, calibrating cameras for incident detection systems has been a complicated process but using the company’s new ACC feature simply requires a vehicle to drive past and the cameras enter calibration mode. After the passage, all cameras have 3D calibration data at hand.
The Kapsch IDS IMP - Installation & Maintenance Portable Device, offers a smart and easy way for customers to install, analyse, recover or replace defective hardware. A touch monitor connected via USB offers the technician all the necessary steps to have the system up and running again in minutes.
