Motor vehicle accidents resulting in injuries, property damage, and even loss of life are critical issues for populations around the world. Current trends suggest this will continue to be the case for years to come.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic crashes claim more than 1.35 million lives each year and cause up to 50 million injuries globally. These statistics could be the result of speeding, distracted driving, or lack of helmets for two-wheel riders. A sad fact is most of these deaths and injuries are preventable.

As city populations grow, so do the burdens on their traffic systems. A solution that improves agility and removes the complexity of traffic management, with reduced labor and increased efficiency, is desperately needed. The key point remains keeping everyone moving safely and peacefully in every vehicle type – cars, buses, trains, subways, motorcycles, bicycles, and on foot.

Hikvision’s field-proven Intelligent Traffic Solution addresses these traffic issues – and more – with a double focus.

Traffic Violation Detection

  • When managing rapidly moving urban traffic, timing can be everything. When traffic violations occur, a rapid response prevents congestion from spreading to neighboring areas.
  • Hikvision’s Checkpoint Systems detect traffic violations on roadways. Whenever a vehicle passes through an ITS-equipped Checkpoint, a camera captures an image of the vehicle and its unique features. Radar-detected vehicle speed is overlaid on the screen. Unsafe behaviors – such as driving with an unfastened seatbelt or using a mobile phone while driving – are also detected.

Traffic Flow Optimization

  • Traffic Flow Systems collect traffic information at crucial intersections and on highways to provide video-based vehicle detection services, including detection and statistics of traffic flow, average speeds, space and time headway, vehicle type, and queue length.
  • When traffic builds up at an intersection, traffic cameras count vehicles crossing the intersection as well as detect the length of vehicle queues in real time.
  • Based on this data, traffic lights are coordinated dynamically to even out the traffic flow. This process helps to speed up the commute, reduces driver frustration and the need for officers to manually direct traffic when it builds up in one direction.
