Web video feeds from traffic control cameras

TrafficLand : 24 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Traffic enforcement cameras in the US city of Detroit will be streamed to a hosting data centre for distributing over the web for live traffic information.
TrafficLand has announced an agreement with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to develop an integrated state wide traffic video network to improve traveller information, public safety and DOT operations.

Under the agreement, TrafficLand has installed video upload equipment to integrate 162 MDOT traffic cameras in the Detroit metropolitan area into its network. TrafficLand is hosting the Network Video in a tier 1 data centre and is able to provide real-time access to any MDOT operation centre or public safety agency across the state. TrafficLand will also be feeding the video to MDOT's Web site, as well as its own site which provides real-time access to over 6,000 traffic cameras, in over 60 markets worldwide.

The Detroit metro area cameras are located along Interstates 275, 695, 75, 94 and 96, and along State Routes 10, 39 and 59. Plans call for traffic cameras located in Grand Rapids and other areas across Michigan to be added to the network.

'Public/private partnerships enhance our existing programs for delivering real-time information to the public and our key agency partners,' said Greg Krueger, Statewide ITS Program Manager for the Michigan Department of Transportation. 'This agreement will improve safety and promote mobility on our vast network.'

"We're very pleased to help MDOT increase access to live video from its traffic cameras for commuters and first responders across Michigan," said Lawrence Nelson, Founder and CEO of TrafficLand. "From fender benders to emergency situations, greater access to traffic cameras can help the driving public make more informed travel decisions and improve emergency response outcomes."

TrafficLand is also making its Video Distribution System (VDS) available to local first responders and media. The service provides more robust access, additional features and a secure interface.
