One bridge links three major cities – Hikvision increase passing efficiency on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge

 

The three most famous bay area cities in the world have one thing in common: They all have at least one well-known bridge of their own.

  • The San Francisco Bay Area boasts the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridges.
  • New York is home to the Verrazano-Narrows and Brooklyn Bridges.
  • And Tokyo has the Great Seto Bridge and the Tokyo Gate Bridge.

 

And now, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area opens the world’s longest sea bridge in China, which is 55km connecting Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region), Macau (Special Administrative Region) and Mainland China and cutting travel time from 3 hours to 30 mins. Designed to withstand earthquakes and typhoons, it was built using 400,000 tonnes of steel, enough to build 60 Eiffel Towers. The functions of the Bridge are to meet the demand of passenger and freight land transport among Hong Kong, the Mainland (particularly the region of Pearl River West) and Macao, to establish a new land transport link between the east and west banks of the Pearl River, and to enhance the economic and sustainable development of the three places.

 

 

Oct 24th, at 9 am local time, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge officially began operations. Sea ports in Zhuhai, Hong Kong and Macao operate 24/7 for traffic.

 

What we are going to introduce, is one of the significant auxiliary facilities for the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge system project, supported by Hikvision – the vehicle monitoring and inspection system. It is one of the most pivotal support systems of the project, which applied license plate recognition technology, intelligent information collection system, and the under-vehicle security system.

 

 

License Plate Recognition: Handles even a large volume of vehicles easily.

Usually, the license plate information is collected using high-resolution video cameras for snapshots and recognition. The traffic on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge includes vehicles from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao. This means that the video cameras have to support high-precision recognition of the license plates from all these three regions. 

 

After years spent accumulating experience and optimizing technologies, the recognition algorithm for the license plates from Mainland China has grown relatively mature. However, as the license plate systems in Hong Kong and Macao are different from that in Mainland China, the recognition success rate has been suffering for some time.


  
Aiming to reestablish effective plate recognition and maintain security, Hikvision set up an algorithm task force. In the recent six months, Hikvision provided hardware to support the operation of the new algorithm and conducted an on-site simulation test using a sample of more than 30 thousand passing vehicles.

 

The recognition success rates of the improved video camera on license plates from Hong Kong and Macao, as well as the cross-region license plates (where both sets of plates must be recognized correctly), have reached and even surpassed the design benchmarks.

 

 

Intelligent Information Collection System: Getting travelers passed faster.

Considering the different types of vehicles that will pass through the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (drivers sit on the left in Mainland China, for example, but on the right Hong Kong and Macao), Hikvision has customized the functions of the system, so that it can flexibly switch among various cameras to provide images with the best angle of view.

 

Hikvision cameras with intelligent capabilities complete intelligent information sensing quickly and easily. In this way, not only is the drivers' identity verification process shortened, but also more efficient for data management. Moreover, large parts of the verification process that traditionally relied solely on manpower can be eliminated as well.

 

The Under-Vehicle Security System: Now faster and safer.

One of the most crucial parts of inspection is determining whether people or contraband are concealed underneath a vehicle. Relying solely on inspectors searching manually would take too much time and effort, holding up traffic and the whole inspection process. Additionall
