Traficon is the leading reference in traffic detection based on video image processing. Traffic managers all over the world use this field-proven technology for vehicle presence detection, traffic data collection, automatic incident detection and management in motorway, tunnel, bridge and urban applications.
As an ISO9001:2000 certified company, Traficon strives to meet its customers' requirements by delivering reliable high quality products, tailor-made solutions and experienced project support.
Multi-application video detection systems
This above-ground detection technology is an intelligent and flexible solution to enhance mobility and optimize traffic flow. The combination of both numerical data and visual image control sets video detection apart from all other detection systems. The immediate visual feedback received from video detection systems allows efficiently monitoring traffic and quickly responding to incidents.
The Traficon video detection system is fast, flexible and reliable. Its multi-functionality makes it the perfect traffic measurement system for a wide range of traffic applications, including ramp metering, hard shoulder monitoring, travel time calculation, dynamic speed indication, queue tail monitoring, congestion monitoring, tunnel access control, ventilation control, rerouting, VMS-control, dynamic queue indication during road works, and dynamic lane opening or closing.
Video image processing for traffic monitoring
The key factor in a Traficon detection system is the video image processor (VIP), a standard detector module on which several types of dedicated detection algorithms run. The video signal from the camera monitoring the traffic is used as input for the detection unit. Detection zones are superposed onto the video image. Vehicles crossing these zones are detected. The VIP analyses the video images to generate a wide range of traffic data and alarms. Communication interfaces link the Traficon video detection product range with different types of communication networks: direct line, telephone lines, fibre networks and wireless communication. On the host computer at the control centre, the Traficon management system (TMS PC software) monitors the video detection systems, handling TCP/IP communication and database storage of data, alarms and images.
