Tunnel traffic monitoring
Tunnels are probably the most dangerous of motoring environments. A traffic incident can quickly escalate into a major tragedy: people being trapped in a tunnel with no chance to escape! More and more traffic managers are now convinced that investments in incident management are absolutely necessary. As they know, effective incident management can save lives!
Effective incident management completely depends on fast incident detection and fast incident verification! Every minute lost heightens the risk of having another accident and drastically increases the time to clear the accident.
Through real-time analysis of images of the camera, FLIR's tunnel incident detection module is able to detect all major incidents within seconds: stopped vehicles, wrong way drivers, queues, slow moving vehicles, fallen objects, ... This short time to detect and fast incident verification can seriously reduce the impact of the incident and prevent secondary accidents.
