Rising urbanization and increasingly interconnected cities are pressuring traffic agencies to modernize. But with overwhelmed staff, limited operational oversight, and slow adoption of new technology, it can be challenging to keep pace.
Traffic agencies are striving to provide better driving conditions. For this, they need to collaborate with other agencies, as traffic operators require a complete picture of events to stay up to date.
Genetec, Inc. a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions offers a traffic-specific portfolio designed to optimize operations, promote growth, and collaborate with city-wide agencies – all through a single, intuitive interface. This ultimately reduces the cost of operation while giving commuters the best experience possible.
Says Anand Thirunagari, Country Manager, India, Genetec, Inc. , “The Genetec traffic portfolio allows traffic agency to rely on roadside sensor traffic data to generate travel time reports, operate traffic lanes and dynamic message signs, and manage incidents — all from one single interface. The traffic operations solution, built on open architecture, allows agencies to evolve and add new technology with little integration effort. The unification of all systems allows agencies to normalize large amounts of data collected from traffic sensors so that operators can have a clear view of events and respond to incidents more quickly.”
At the core of the Genetec portfolio is the Security Center, a unified security platform. It blends IP security systems within a single intuitive interface, which simplifies everyday traffic operations. Security Center empowers staff with unified command and control through video surveillance, access control, and automatic license plate recognition.
AutoVu™: The AutoVu automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) system automates license plate reading and identification. This makes it easier for parking management teams to enforce parking restrictions. It also makes it easier to locate and count vehicles of interest such as buses, taxis, and even car-sharing services.
The Omnicast™ IP video management system (VMS) ensures video recording for traffic agencies of all sizes. The Omnicast system scales and adapts to the changing demands of traffic environments and is available for a wide range of industry-leading cameras, encoders, and CCTV equipment.
Genetec also offers several traffic-specific modules for Security Center, including:
The Security Center Traffic Sensor Management module equips traffic agencies with actionable insights through one unified platform, based on the data captured by various roadside sensors. It analyses this data to provide object counts and classifications, object speeds, and traffic volumes.
The Digital Sign Management Module helps traffic agencies view and control all their messages from one central location. This allows for manual or automatic changes to one or many signs.
The Travel time module integrates video management, vehicle and waypoint tracking and GPS units. Traffic agencies can use it to gather, investigate and respond to travel time data in real time.
Genetec Mission Control: Making sense of all the data collected by the unified system helps traffic agencies support operational decisions based on verified, real-time data. Genetec Mission Control™ is a key component for traffic agencies seeking rapid, consistent, and well-defined incident response.
