As city streets and sidewalks become more congested, city planners face new safety challenges – distracted pedestrians, more bicyclists, and an increase in public transportation. Smart and semi-autonomous vehicles are also on the rise in cities and on highways. The challenge for traffic engineers and planners is complex.
How do you choose the right technology to improve mobility, safety, and efficient use of roadways now and into the future? Let's take a look...
For decades, Bosch has developed Video Analytics technology for driver-assistance, autonomous driving applications, and intelligent safety systems. This same technology is inside Bosch IP cameras, bringing intelligence to infrastructure through traffic flow and smart parking solutions. Video Analytics built-in to the cameras enables intelligent devices that can alert to safety risks and deliver valuable data for highway and urban infrastructure planning.
- Early incident detection enables operators to implement the necessary workflows to resolve incidents faster
- Integration with dynamic message signs and DSRC broadcast messages ensure drivers are instantly alerted to safety issues and improves situational awareness
- Detection of pedestrians in a crosswalk can alert the traffic controller to preempt traffic signals to increase safety for people in the intersection
- Jaywalkers at night can trigger the IP camera to activate an on-board white light illuminator to make pedestrians more visible for drivers
- Pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle counts
- Average speed and direction
- Road occupancy
