The BMA is used for automatic traffic surveys, analyses of movement flows and surveys of parking space utilization.
The 4D imaging radar from Steradian Semi-Conductor Ltd has multiple applications, one among them is traffic management for ITMS segment. Under ITMS, the system has multiple usage like speed enforcement especially speed violation on multiple lanes. “Based on the zones and classification of the vehicles, we can identify the vehicles violating the speed. We work pre-dominantly with the camera OEMs and SI’s, our system helps to solve the problem of safety on highways. The radars are not just accurate, it has all the international certifications complying to safety standards,” explained Ashish Lachhwani, Co-Founder.
With the ADAS (Advance Driver Assistance System) device from Netradyne, the fleet owner can constantly monitor every moment of the driver right from the time he sits behind the wheel; every minute driving habits like speeds, braking, acceleration are captured by our device in real-time. “Our device is based on AI computation with high definition cameras, it captures every nuances of driving behavior & habit which can help to correct at the root itself, and your subsequent pyramid gets much stronger,” said Shivkumar Balasubramanian, Director, Sales.
Another company that provides road safety and driver assistance products is Australia based MetroCount. Maurice Berger, Business Development Manager was happy about the response the just launched RoadPod® VM magnetometers received at the Expo. These are small, unobtrusive and off-grid vehicle counters that provide real-time data on traffic movements. It is designed to be the simplest and fastest traffic sensor to install on sealed roads or cycleways. One has to simply apply a specialized adhesive pad to the road surface, heat and place the magnetometer on top. Each sensor captures time-stamped vehicle information independently, transmitting it to a central gateway that combines the information and securely sends the raw data to the Cloud.
