Remote video surveillance for highway traffic application

Remote video surveillance for highway traffic application
Background
Thousands of commuters every day crowd the main highways in Taiwan making their way to their desired destinations. Video surveillance systems have been widely used on highways for traffic monitoring, as the cameras are able to provide the most up-to-date information for both the traffic management center and the traveler. As security became a high priority for the Taiwanese government, transportation authorities at the National Freeway Bureau started looking for enhanced solutions to perform video surveillance.
 
In recent years, there is a rapid increase in the demand for road and other public infrastructure in Taiwan; therefore, LILIN PTZ systems were adopted in order to monitor all the highways across Taiwan and maximize emergency dispatching services.
 
Mission
Highway management in Taiwan sought to ensure the smooth operation of main freeway routes and guarantee the safety of passengers and drivers. To remotely monitor highway traffic and ensure overall security, Taiwan National Freeway Bureau decided to integrate IP solutions which would collect real time traffic video and transfer the data from the highway to the traffic control center.
 
Solution
Freeway traffic videos are taken as input video input from LILIN Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras (IPS8368, SP8368, and IPS4208) at Expressway No.82, No.86, and No.88 as well as Freeway No.1 and No.3. The state and activities of the vehicles are analyzed, and if there was any abnormal instances, an alarm would be sent to the traffic command support center.
 
Traffic state is an important traffic flow parameter to the traveler and the traffic management center. To leverage the security camera infrastructure already in place, a mobile application for highway traffic monitoring was proposed and developed. Government- based mobile app - 1968 is an intelligent incident management system application that monitors and manages traffic along expressways, freeways, and tunnels. The app provides motorists in Taiwan with real time traffic information on incidents so as to mitigate its effect, and at the same time allows quick clearance of accidents. A pleasant journey for motorists on highways in Taiwan comes as a result.
 
Results
Taiwan national freeway services are designed for the citizens’ safety. After installing LILIN PTZ camera systems, the National Freeway Bureau has significantly improved the work efficiency of the traffic police. LILIN makes the video solutions used in thein central traffic monitoring center easy-to-operate with its existing VMS software. The customer is planning to expand the same surveillance solution to the entire country.
