Cameras for ITS/Traffic

Intelligent Transportation Systems

A solution to the challenges of outdoor imaging

From highway monitoring to open-road tolling and law enforcement, machine vision and high-speed cameras offer many benefits for ITS and traffic applications to deliver reliable and high quality image data under the most challenging conditions.

Almost every imaging application related to transportation and traffic is outdoors. With especially tough conditions from darkness to bright sun light with strong shadows, our cameras offer low noise image signals even under low light conditions, high dynamic range for scenes with bright sunlight and shadows simultaneously, as well as smear-free captures of even fast moving objects.

Applications:

  • Open Road Tolling
  • Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
  • Law-Enforcement
  • Monitoring and Transportation
  • Rail and Road
ITS and Traffic Imaging

In the surveillance of large areas, like a section of a highway, it is important to adapt the lens to environmental conditions and to the current area of interest. Therefore, all our cameras can be equipped with a lens mount adapter to control the focus and iris control through our software API using the Birger lens mount.

Besides the lighting conditions, outdoor applications are typically characterized by multiple remotely installed cameras and a central unit for processing and storage of the data. Our BOLT series can stream high-resolution images of up to 50 megapixels with 30 frames per second over optical fiber lines of up to 10 km length. The networked video capabilities of 25GigE allow for the simultaneous processing, storage and display of multiple camera streams distributed simply via ubiquitous state-of-the-art IT infrastructure.
