In Bangkok, there are more than 2.6 million vehicles are on the roads daily. It is estimated that drivers on average have to spend around 22 days each year stuck in the traffic. One of the busiest roads penetrating the heart of Downtown Bangkok, Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway is no exception. This Highway is frequently congested with cars and motorcycles as commuters travelling in and out of the capital city, especially during the rush hours.
MESSOA traffic cameras brought in to meet high requirements for traffic analysis
In an effort to understand more about the traffic patterns on this congested highway for future planning, the MESSOA partner Digitalcom was commissioned by Department of Highways to set up a traffic analysis system at one of the busiest sections along the route. The main objectives are to monitor the traffic conditions, to analyze the traffic volume, as well as to calculate the time taken to travel through this section at any given time of the day.
Traffic analysis requires higher standards in terms of captured image quality in order to collect the most accurate information possible for data analysis. The MESSOA cameras deployed in this project successfully met such requirements with the company’s extensive know-how in traffic surveillance.
Positive identification with excellent plate capturing capability
The MESSOA SCR515PRO and SCB265iPRO traffic cameras were strategically installed at four locations spread across the monitored section. The SCR515PRO was used to capture the license plate of any target vehicles. By identifying the plate numbers to track a particular vehicle, it allows the system to accurately calculate the time taken for that vehicle to pass through each of the four location points within the heavy traffic. On the other hand, the SCB265iPRO was used to capture an overview of the entire road span that allows the system to estimate the total traffic volume.
Both SCR515PRO and SCB265iPRO are driven by MESSOA’s proprietary CatchAll™ engine, a self-developed image processing technology specially designed to accurately capture vital vehicle information regardless of any extraneous noises, such as vehicle headlights, heavy rain, fog, etc. This is particularly useful for installations situated in humid, raining tropical climate such as Bangkok.
This CatchAll™ technology also enables the camera to capture images of vehicles traveling at all speeds up to 200kph, delivering crisper, clearer images at outdoor lighting conditions and to ensure precise captures for positive identification all day long when integrated with any LPR and car counting software solutions.
Helping to collect valuable traffic data
The project leader at the Department of Highways was satisfied with the analysis results and made the following remark: “The MESSOA traffic cameras deliver an exceptional image quality that will help us attain accurate information that we need for analyzing the traffic patterns on Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway. The data collected will become really valuable references as we draw up traffic policies and regulations, as well as future traffic planning for the city that is still growing and expanding”.
