The company that manages highways in Italy is using a real-time traffic management system based on Infinova’s V1749A High-Speed pan/tilt/zoom camera.
Infinova, which is headquartered in New Jersey, says Autovie Venete S.p.A.—the company that manages Italy’s motorway routes A4 Venice-Trieste, A23 Palmanova-Udine South and A28 Portogruaro-Pordenone-Conegliano—controls over 300 V1749A cameras.
“Infinova cameras were originally selected because of their high image quality and mechanical reliability as proven in other intelligent traffic systems (ITS) such as those in China, India, Brazil and the United States,” said Mark Wilson, Infinova vice president, marketing. “The V1749A provides multi-protocol capabilities, Pelco-P/D protocol, a two-way system for receiving images and controlling the camera, speedy responses to any incidents, and uninterrupted viewing of any subject that passes directly beneath the Infinova camera.”
The Autovie Venete motorway network monitoring and control system is a classic ITS solution that centralizes and integrates all the viewing, communication and control functions currently available to the staff at the Palmanova Traffic Control Centre in a single user interface, Infinova says. In addition, the A4 Venice-Trieste Motorway has extensive traffic monitoring requirements, needing surveillance and security monitoring at its interchanges and bridges to improve traffic fluidity, decrease the number of crimes taking place on the motorway, and identify subjects believed to be responsible for events occurring on or just off the motorway property, the firm says.
