Latvian company Squalio is exhibiting at Intertraffic for the first time to publicise its ‘all-in’ smart city system called Fits (future intelligent transportation system).
Feed from any make or type of sensor, controller, camera or variable message sign within a city can be taken in and the system converts the data into a common format.
It then provides an overview of the entire network with green/ yellow/red colour coding to illustrate which parts of the network (both the traffic flow and the management electronics) are working well and highlight areas requiring attention.
The system can then be used to cross connect and automate previously unconnected services – such as automatically reducing speed limits when a weather station detects poor visibility – and is type-approved for enforcement and tolling purposes.
Having used the real-time data for managing the network and performing functions ranging from surveillance, monitoring and detection to traffic control, tolling administration and speed enforcement, the data is archived for use in traffic flow planning.
