Traffic & Transportation
Cameras have come to serve as the "optimized eye" for Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS), delivering high-quality images even under the most challenging of conditions. The high speeds inherent to the traffic field necessitate sensors with global shutter technology and high sensitivity, typically built around large pixels that allow for clear images despite short exposure times. With the rise of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), also known as LPR (License Plate Recognition), as technological cornerstones of modern traffic systems, the importance of image quality is essential.
Strong feature sets and flexibility are also a must, as the systems must be ready to accommodate for the regional and application-specific customizations that come with global deployment. For many projects, the infrastructure pre-determines the camera type. For example, access controls tend to need IP cameras so that they can be integrated directly into existing security systems. For specialized systems such as free flow tolling, by contrast, where the computational unit and camera form a tightly integrated unit and real-time compatibility is a must, industrial cameras are the most common choice.
With our broad portfolio of industrial (machine vision) and network (IP) cameras, we have the right camera in our catalog for your traffic system, whatever the specific application.
ANPR / LPR
Number plate recognition represents a central technology in this field and is used in a variety of different traffic areas.
Enforcement systems have a wide range of potential applications. Law enforcement may potentially be looking for e.g. speed and red light enforcement or lane violation detection
Today's tolling systems are frequently based on automated number plate recognition. These include, for example, free flow tolling, city tolling and access control.
Camera-based in-vehicle solutions help police around the world perform their daily duties more efficiently.
Monitoring & Transportation
This field encompasses a broad spectrum of different applications in which IP cameras are primarily used. Typical applications include weigh in motion, vehicle identification and traffic monitoring.
Rail & Road
Digital cameras are used in a broad range of street, rail and train inspection systems, checking that the necessary maintenance measures have been undertaken to ensure safety.
