Flir to showcase dual vision and C-ITS technology
Flir ITS will use Intertraffic Amsterdam 2018 to showcase Dual Vision Technology (DVT), combining best-in-class thermal imaging detection and HD visual imaging to provide a complete traffic monitoring solution for road and tunnel operators. Moreover, DVT has the exceptional functionality of detecting fire at an early stage, together with see-through-smoke capabilities.
Flir’s C-ITS technology promises major benefits in mobility applications, such as traffic signal priority for public transport and emergency vehicles. The company’s thermal imaging detector with embedded V2X (vehicle-to-everything) technology enables intersections with V2I (vehicle-to-infrastructure) capabilities and connects vehicles to traffic signals. This allows the rapid movement of priority vehicles in urban arterials by serving the queue at the stop bar when a priority vehicle is detected. Next to that, by detecting vulnerable road users and broadcasting a warning message to approaching vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists can be brought into the V2X communication system.
Also being highlighted at Intertraffic will be a range of detection and monitoring solutions to help traffic and public transportation authorities to manage their traffic flows efficiently. Based on detection technology proven for more than 25 years, Flir will showcase hardware and software solutions that help detect motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in urban environments; detect incidents on highways and fire in tunnels; collect traffic data; ensure safety on rail tracks, tunnels and platforms; and on-board passenger compartments.
