Samsung cameras chosen for Izmir's Full Adaptive Traffic Management system
Izmir, the third most populous city in Turkey, has deployed Samsung cameras in support of a Full Adaptive Traffic Management system which provides real-time integrated traffic management as a means of reducing traffic jams and increasing road safety.

The Samsung Full HD 32x optical zoom PTZ speed domes installed at key locations throughout the city are providing high definition images in support of field devices such as detectors, signal transmitters, traffic signals and control devices. Collectively, they provide the ability to measure the volume of traffic at crossroads and enable signal times to be adjusted in real-time in order to minimize traffic congestion.

The cameras, which have an auto-tracking feature, are weatherproof and have heaters powered by PoE+ to withstand extremely low temperatures, as well as a digital image stabilization feature which negates the effects of vibration. The images captured are recorded onto 64 channel NVRs. These are able to simultaneously record and multi-stream the transmission of images at a high bandwidth speed of 400Mbps and have a large onboard storage capacity via 12 hot-swappable internal hard drives. Power reliability is enhanced by way of a dual power supply.

Images captured by the cameras are being transmitted to a control room. They can also be viewed by the general public via the web, TV, Internet and social media channels.

The speed domes are also helping the city of Izmir to monitor the movement of public transport and emergency service vehicles. In total, 1,500 buses as well as 100 ambulances and 164 fire trucks will wirelessly communicate with signalized crossroads and their movements will be monitored with the help of the speed domes, as part of a traffic priority system. The Full Adaptive Traffic Management system has been implemented by EDS Elektronik, a Samsung distributor in collaboration with systems integrator, Mavi Güvenlik.
