Ever-increasing numbers of vehicles bring about serious traffic congestion during rush hours, causing not only inconvenience but also safety risks. This makes it crucial for urban traffic management to pinpoint areas of congestion while guiding and improving traffic flow.
Hikvision’s Traffic Flow Systems monitor traffic densities and rates, process original data, and display traffic status. They control traffic light duration and guide drivers to alleviate congestion.
These systems collect traffic information at crucial intersections and on highways to provide video-based vehicle detection services, including detection and statistics of traffic flow, average speeds, space and time headway, space and time occupation, vehicle type and queue length, and traffic status.
A traffic controller can use data provided by traffic flow cameras to adjust traffic light intervals as needed. For congested lanes, red light duration is shortened, for example. A traffic guidance screen shows traffic information with directions to ease the congestion.
