Steven Van Caet from Flir
ITS, together with Marben
Products, is offering a connected vehicle demonstration using V2X communication between the vehicles and roadside infrastructure, here at the ITS World Congress.
Marben V2X software is used in both vehicles and a Flir Trafisense V2X thermal imaging camera with embedded DSRC, based on Roadlink technology from NXP, to enable connected vehicle safety applications.
Flir and Marben are demonstrating V2V applications such as forward collision warning, emergency electronic brake lights, intersection movement assist, blind spot warning, left turn assist, lane change warning, together with V2I applications such as pedestrian in crosswalk warning. Flir’s thermal imaging sensor with embedded V2X will detect pedestrians and cyclists to broadcast warning messages to surrounding and approaching vehicles.
Flir points out that V2X communication promises major benefits in mobility applications as well, such as connected traffic signal priority for public transport and emergency vehicles, enabling the rapid movement of those vehicles in urban arterials.
It allows traffic control strategies to decrease the emergency vehicle response time (EVRT) and to minimise public transport vehicle delay by serving the queue at the stop bar when a priority vehicle is detected.
Detection and monitoring solutions from Flir help traffic and public transportation authorities to manage their traffic flows efficiently. Based on advanced technology proven for more than 25 years, Flir’s hardware and software solutions help detect motorists, bicyclists 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.
For more information and registration for the demo visit the Flir or Marben booth.
