Navtech’s Intelligent Transport System finds stopped vehicles in low visibility areas so operators can dispatch assistance to road users. The Intelligent Transport System delivers additional capabilities to create safer roads including: vehicle count and classification, wrong-way driver detection and hard shoulder monitoring.
The Intelligent Transport System technology is field-tested to be effective over large national roadways covering 200+ miles. Roadway Monitoring’s operational performance — high detection and low false alarm rates — makes roads significantly safer and more efficient.
Roadway Monitoring’s largest tunnel installation monitors nearly 18 miles of roadway. This technology automatically closes the tunnel when it detects a wrong-way driver. The same system also provides automatic incident detection, stopped vehicle detection, and pedestrian detection in tunnels.
Roadway Monitoring software detects incidents as fast as 10 seconds after occurring, with an incredibly low false alarm rate of just one per sensor per day, in any weather and light conditions. Each automatic incident detection (AID) radar covers wide areas up to 1,000m.
Count and classification is one of the multiple capabilities, which include AID capabilities, removing the need for further equipment and subsequently reducing costs. It analyzes multiple lanes, collects data on road occupancy, speed, size, and direction. The information saved can be used to improve traffic flow and road efficiency.
Roadway Monitoring’s situational awareness integrates with existing radar installations to provide operators and emergency services with a visual map. Emergency services can use this information to respond to incidents with speed and precision.
Roadway Monitoring’s user-friendly interface is easy to configure. Alarms are rules-based and can be triggered by individual incidents occurring — for example, a stopped vehicle in a particular lane or zone. Operating profiles can be set up and switched, at the click of a mouse, to respond to contraflows or maintenance situations.
Roadway Monitoring’s simple API can be integrated with PTZ Cameras. This integration provides operators with the radar’s picture and live video-feed of the highway. Roadway Interference Detection automatically guides the cameras nearest the location to focus on the item of interest when an incident is detected. By having an overhead map and real-time video feed, operators can manage incidents better.
