M1 Traffic Study to use equipment from Smart CCTV

Smart CCTV : 28 September, 2009  (Application Story)
CCTV Surveillance and video analytics specialists in the UK win contract to supply battery operated camera systems for use in a traffic management study to take place on the M1 motorway using ANPR technology
Smart CCTV has won a new contract to supply smart cameras to traffic management experts Clearview Traffic Group for a study commencing in September 2009.

It follows completion in July 2009 of a successful six-month journey-time study on the M5 at Junction 1 undertaken by Golden River, a division of Clearview Traffic.

The new implementation will be for an innovative automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system at Junction 40 on the M1, with a similar specification to the first project.

The solution advised by Video Analytics specialist Smart CCTV will comprise 15 battery with solar-powered assistance smart cameras sending data via 3G mobile communications to Clearview Traffic's MCentre management application.

The cameras are installed quickly and easily, using non-invasive mountings, providing a temporary study method for the road. The system provides more accurate, timely and comprehensive data and is more cost-effective than traditional onsite and video survey techniques.

The main aim of the new study will be to provide detailed reports for journey time analysis, measured by reporting individual number plates between given points on six journeys on and off the motorway.

Ultimately the detailed data reports from the MCentre are used by Atkins, consultants to the Highways Agency, to improve traffic flow, ease congestion and improve the interface between the motorway's traffic signalling system and that of the local authority on the roads leading to the junction, in order to maximise the junction's capacity.

Kevin Adams, chief executive officer for Clearview Traffic Group Ltd said: 'Smart CCTV responded with the equipment we wanted at a competitive price and were able to install it within the desired timescale. This will enable us to provide an innovative solution to the client.'

The study will begin in September and is anticipated to last for two months.
