Temporary deployment CCTV cameras provide effective road and site monitoring for bus gate enforcement, bus lane enforcement, box junction enforcement, traffic flow, accident alert, and special event road network construction and management. To effectively keep traffic moving, live information from cameras can include detection and statistics of traffic flow, average speeds, space and time headway, space and time occupation, vehicle type and queue length, and traffic status.
CCTV cameras can support traffic management where congestion and traffic queues are frequent, and where there is an increased risk of accidents and traffic incidents. When used for traffic surveillance, cameras can either have a fixed field of view – for example, when used to monitor traffic and provide alerts – or be equipped with a pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) capability to allow operators to have a wider field of view of larger areas such as roundabouts, gyratory systems and junctions.
Local Councils often have good CCTV coverage in areas easily served by fixed cable infrastructure, typically within inner cities. However, the costs and disruption involved in connecting additional traffic cameras in outlying, remote areas, or areas of historical significance with restricted opportunities for traditional cabling and groundworks, back to a central control room has hitherto excluded their use. In this scenario, Vemotion streaming solutions can provide the answer, where they are proven to provide simple, cost-effective remote CCTV coverage for road networks, economically connecting them to an existing fixed camera network.
As a highly cost-efficient, alternative solution to fixed position cameras for traffic monitoring, Vemotion wireless transmission technology can be used for the remote monitoring of driver behaviour in real time and in review via high-definition recorded footage. Vemotion technology ensures a dynamic CCTV solution that will keep pace with rapidly developing hotspots or changes in road infrastructure across an entire road network.
Moreover, wireless camera extensions to existing hard-wired CCTV networks can be achieved quickly and cost-effectively in response to requirements – versus the slow, costly and disruptive installation of new coax/fibre cable infrastructure.
