Intelligent Transportation Systems
The long-distance reach, flexible networking capabilities, and real-time performance of Pleora's networked video solutions improves the efficiency and reduces the cost of a wide range of intelligent traffic systems, including those for automated tolling, traffic cameras, red light cameras, and parking enforcement.
Why GigE Vision over GigE?
Intelligent transportation system designers and integrators look to Pleora for GigE Vision®-compliant solutions so that they can:
- Move PCs off gantries: Gigabit Ethernet (GigE)’s long cable lengths allow a PC to be moved from the gantry to a protected equipment enclosure at ground-level. This greatly simplifies system implementation, maintenance, and management.
- Extend life span of a legacy system: Our solutions also make it easy to combine different sensor types and interfaces, such as Camera Link® and analog, into one system, enabling integrators to keep existing components.
- Communicate in real time: Pleora’s solution elements provide real-time performance through accurate synchronization of external components electrically connected at the camera head using our programmable logic controller (PLC). Further, there is the capacity to multicast the imaging data to multiple locations simultaneously.
- Future-proof their systems: Our GigE-based solution is easily scalable, allowing new sensors, displays, and processors to be integrated at a future date, as well as to combine different camera types into one system.
Intelligent transportation applications
Remote monitoring applications for Pleora’s intelligent transportation solutions include:
- Automated tolling;
- Speed cameras;
- Parking enforcement;
- Traffic cameras; and
- Red light cameras.
Networked video in action
The intelligent transportation system application shown below is an example of an automated tolling system that has been designed with networked video.
The use of a Pleora iPORT™ IP engine enables the cameras to stream video over Ethernet. The use of Ethernet, with its flexible and long cable lengths, allows for a system design where the PC can be removed from the gantry for more convenient access and maintenance.
