Congestion Monitoring

Description

Data collection station that provides accurate and timely information on lane occupation to optimize traffic lights, signal traffic congestion conditions and analyze and plan traffic.

Applications

  • Adaptive traffic light control.
  • Control information panels.
  • Report alarms to handle traffic congestions (e.g. call traffic enforcement agents).

Features

  • Gathers presence/occupation information in multiple points on road lanes.
  • Configurable alarms to report congestion by occupation level and duration.
  • Allows the combination of information from multiple measurement points.
  • Signal congestion alarms by means of serial connections or relay outputs, amenable to integrate in traffic light control equipment.
  • Report periodic aggregated data via serial or ethernet connections.

Benefits

  • Low cost of installation and maintenance.
  • No calibration required.
  • Easy deployment: requires minimal intervention in the infrastructure.
  • Doesn’t require dedicated power line for sensors.
  • Accuracy not affected by either weather conditions or occlusions.
  • Monitoring points can be added, removed, relocated easily to adapt to changes in traffic patterns.
