ARH demonstrating three new products at ITS World Congress in Montreal


Hungarian traffic technology company ARH Inc. is demonstrating three of its latest products at the Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress 2017, which is taking place in Montreal, Canada, this week.

As a pioneer in optical character recognition (OCR), ARH develops, manufactures and offers highly reliable intelligent software and devices that process images and data in the identification and transportation management sectors. As an independent developer of the software and hardware components of imaging devices for over 26 years, ARH designs, manufactures and delivers innovative yet field tested systems that help traffic management authorities and highway management organizations to monitor traffic, optimize traffic control, collect road tolls, and generally streamline transportation.

Headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, and with North American offices in Clearwater, Florida, ARH’s ITS product development is in line with the company’s new Smart City initiative to automatically forecast, recognize and manage challenging traffic issues.

The latest versions of three of the company’s established integrated traffic management solutions will be demonstrated at the World Congress:

TrafficSpot is a single-gantry, multi-lane middleware from ARH that can monitor both free-flow and stop-and-go traffic. While applying non-intrusive technology, TrafficSpot has a 100% vehicle detection rate. Each passing vehicle is classified into one of 28 predefined vehicle categories. It uses both radar sensors and purpose-made cameras for accurate ALPR (automatic license plate recognition) and ADR recognition, with traffic data sent to a central database. ARH’s entirely video-stream-based ITS is a flexible, customizable turnkey solution with the benefit of being platform-independent, which is ready to be integrated to any local or national infrastructure of traffic management or toll collection system.

Globessey Data Server (GDS), which is a high capacity, scalable and flexible ITS middleware with a dedicated graphical user interface (GUI), a health-monitoring module, geo-redundant data storage with load balancer, and API for end-user applications that helps users manage critical traffic situations.

ARH’s GDS middleware is a flexible, yet robust and super-fast central system to store all records, including images, supporting virtually unlimited amounts of traffic data. An intuitive GUI provides real-time accurate data on traffic flow, the status of the system (health-monitoring) or statistics, depending on project’s needs.

The S1 portable manual/automatic speed and traffic enforcement camera, which takes a traffic point’s complex multi-lane monitoring capabilities, and compresses it into a portable device. ARH says the S1 is more than just an ANPR/LPR speed camera, as it operates without human assistance, collects and stores data automatically, and forwards these results as real-time data packages into a database center.
