At D2 Traffic, one of our top-of-the-line traffic solutions is the In-Vision Vehicle Occupancy Detection (VOD) System. The In-Vision system is a roadside unit (iRSU), which tests the precision of competitively priced Express Lanes. But how exactly does this roadside unit perform these tasks? How does VOD help enforce carpool lanes and ensure their effective operation?
Carpool lanes, also known as High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes, are designated lanes on highways or roadways reserved for vehicles with multiple occupants, such as carpoolers, buses, or motorcycles. VOD is an integral part of the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) infrastructure and provides several important functions in monitoring carpool lanes.
At D2 Traffic Technologies, the proof is in the pudding. In early 2021, In-Vision partnered with global toll road developer and operator Transurban to test the precision of Express Lanes. The In-Vision iRSU was set up at three different spots in the Greater Washington Area and achieved a precision of 97.5% in under two hours of operation.
Tech options like the In-Vision Roadside Unit are becoming more and more crucial with the advent of smart driving options and AI-powered transportation. Carpool lanes are just the beginning. Soon, this top-of-the-line tech will help enforce a host of traffic laws and rules. By ensuring the efficient and fair operation of traffic infrastructure, video analytics are truly the future of transportation management. Get in touch with us today for more info!
