TrafficVision introduces itself to ITS industry
Trafficvision's Joel Shindeldecker with the in-line device
Trafficvision is introducing itself to the ITS crowd at this year’s annual meeting and exposition, showcasing its line of in-line devices that transform existing traffic cameras into intelligent sensors capable of detecting incidents and collecting data in real time.
According to Joel Shindeldecker, Director of Product Development, the company’s technology has been in development for seven years, and it has been shipping products along the U.S. East Coast for a year.
Trafficvision offers rack-mountable, portable and edge versions of its Traffic Management Center (TMC) that work with virtually any optic or thermal camera. Because the detection technology sits on top of legacy infrastructure, transportation agencies do not have to replace existing camera technology.
“We can take any camera and make it intelligent,” Shindeldecker says.
Transportation agencies can use TMC to do vehicle counts and classifications as well as incident detection. What sets Trafficvision apart, however, is its capability of detecting and tracking vehicles over time, including spillover, occlusion and recalibration.
