The Power of Surveillance

Nowadays, you cant have a usable ITS with out surveillance. Intelligence re-quires information, and information requires data, which is generated by surveillance. So what types of data does an ITS need? A major objective of ITS is to reduce the delay and risk caused by incidents-collisions, stalls, debris of the freeway, etc. It is commonly believed that about half of all congestion is induced by incidents. Finding and mitigating incidents (e.g. restoring the transportation system to its normal operational state) is perhaps the most valuable activity that a transportation agency can perform.

Travel time is perhaps the key quantitative parameter for ITS surveillance systems. Environmental emissions, fuel costs, accident risk and driver stress are all a function of changes in travel time. Every person assesses trip travel time in deciding if and when to embark on each trip. The reduction of risk of secondary accidents has been a major concern of significance to transportation agencies. Highway Call Box programs are all meant to minimize this risk. However, surveillance systems can quickly and efficiently identify travelers in need of assistance and other situations that can keep the flow of traffic running smoothly while increasing safety with the highway.

Specializing in CCTV Surveillance Systems, at ITSPR we off leading-edge products to keep your highways safe. These technologies use vehicle induction signatures and laser-based systems to help you estimate travel time. Additionally, these systems are designed to probe vehicle surveillance and even image sensing with low visibility.

What’s more, a CCTV technology with such leading-edge technology as high-tech thermal imaging paired with a military spec lowering system equals the ultimate in flexibility in design, height and location. At ITSPR, we provide you with the ideal system for any application – commercial, government, institutional and/or private industry.
