Melissa Windels of Traficon with the VIP-PTZ
Traficon’s appearance at Intertraffic coincides with the company’s 20th birthday, and the launch of several new products.
Since the company was found in 1992, Traficon has built up a strong market presence in the field of traffic video detection for application in tunnels, highways, bridges and urban intersections. Many customers still rely on Traficon technology today, which was purchased almost 20 years ago!
Traficon’s Video Image Processor (VIP) range combines traffic flow monitoring and automatic incident detection functionality in one single board. The VIP-T module analyses images from analogue cameras. VIP-IP can connect to a broad range of IP cameras, supporting both MPEG-4 and new H.264 video compression. Traficon will use Intertraffic to present the new VIP-PTZ, a reliable video detection solution to add automatic incident for pan tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras.
For pedestrian presence detectors, Traficon’s successful C-Walk and SafeWalk sensors ensure safety and efficiency for pedestrians actually crossing or waiting to cross the street. These smart video detection sensors, which are a cost-effective alternative to radar, PIR or pressure mats, will also be featured at Intertraffic.
The company will also be highlighting its TrafiCam vehicle presence sensor range that combines a CMOS sensor and video detection technology in one and can be used for vehicle presence detection at signalised intersections. Next to the standard TrafiCam sensor, the company will also be featuring the TrafiCam x-stream, which is IP-addressable and includes MPEG-4 image compression and streaming video.
