V-TEC is a device with video imaging system that allows the detection, traffic monitoring and classification of vehicles. Using a sophisticated video analysis algorithm the ARM-TEC UNIT can monitor the video-detection area, and simultaneously gather real-time data such as the number, type and traffic status, with O/D matrix function capability. The system is focused for dynamic algorithms of traffic junctions management non-invasive, for traffic junction video-monitoring, and for travel time estimation ( TTE ); can be coupled with ANPR system. The resulting data can be used to help the road users to move smoothly on the road sections subject to traffic queues /congestions or delays at certain times, for example by alerting via variable message signs, or through the most popular social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) the best way to go and the estimated travel time.
Vision-Algorithm Software to elaborate video imaging embedded on Arm TEC-Unit.
Detection up to 4 lanes for each road
Vision camera setting by remote.
Classifier unit ARM based on storage and local monitoring vehicle by vehicle with the following features: :
TEC-SMacs® GPRS interface for ITS platform TMacs-SMacs
TEC-SMacs® is a Cloud and modular ITS software platform for managing, controlling and monitoring traffic.
TEC-SMacs® offers an advanced web tool for remote consultation of traffic data collected from their stations in the dedicated Macs Analysis module.
Macs Analysis is the module that processes and manages the data obtained from the detection unit for the study of traffic trends. It’s available real-time monitoring with trend of traffic flow [veh/h], TGM [veh/g] average daily traffic, vehicles number, average speed [km/h], 15th percentile [km/h], 85th percentile [km/h], average flow [veh/h], average density [veh/km]. All data are compared on an hourly, daily and on average last week.
It is also possible to perform historical searches on one or more lanes of vehicular depending on the classification scheme and the period chosen. It’s available the download reports of studies carried out and save the data in csv and excel.
TEC-SMacs® communicates with the Web Server via GPRS modem or Ethernet port.
