Provider of industrial machine vision solutions Vitronic will be showcasing its solutions for toll enforcement and traffic monitoring at Intertraffic Amsterdam, which opened its doors today.
At the event, which will run until April 1, Vitronic will be located in Hall 1 and will be available to speak to visitors about its mobile toll enforcement vehicles and stationary toll systems, which offer flexibility and make automatic enforcement possible.
Furthermore, as its trade show highlight, the company will present the Enforcement Bar, which is already being used for mobile toll enforcement in Poland. The solution is a fully automatic number plate identification and classification system that can be used while driving. It enables the automatic recognition of number plates as well as the classification of different vehicle classes.
The system’s technology makes it possible to recognize number plates in four directions. According to Vitronic, it can achieve a very high detection rate, even at high speeds, and enables enforcement officers to continuously identify suspect cases. The system transmits the collected data to electronic toll collection systems, where it is checked in a database.
At the event, Vitronic will also present a video-based measurement system that uses AI to increase safety at crosswalks. A neural network-based system monitors the crosswalk, for example, and automatically distinguishes between pedestrians, cyclists, and motorized road users. If a vehicle disregards pedestrians’ right of way or endangers them, a violation is detected.
Finally, Vitronic, alongside and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), will present during a lecture on March 29 a new project seeking to enhance the safety of vulnerable road users.
The Local Traffic Safety Analyzer (LTSA) research project is a partnership between Vitronic, the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). LTSA is a distributed recording system that specifically detects more vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians, within the road space. In the future, the LTSA will support automated and connected transportation to improve traffic flow and increase traffic safety.
