Taiwan traffic monitoring
Everyday, thousands of commuters crowd the main highways in Taiwan making their way to their desired destinations. CCTV surveillance systems have been widely used on highways for traffic monitoring, as the cameras are able to provide the most up-to-date information for both traffic management centre and the travellers. As security becomes a high priority for the Taiwanese government, transportation authorities at the National Freeway Bureau were looking for enhanced solutions to perform video surveillance.
In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the demand for road and other public infrastructure in Taiwan, therefore, LILIN PTZ systems were adopted in order to monitor all the highways across the island of Taiwan and to optimise emergency dispatch services.
Real time traffic video for highway management
Highway management in Taiwan sought to ensure the smooth operation of main freeway routes and to guarantee the safety of passengers and drivers. To remotely monitor the highway traffic and ensure the overall security, the Taiwan National Freeway Bureau decided to integrate IP solutions which would collect real time traffic video, and transfer the data from the highway to the traffic control centre.
The freeway traffic videos are taken as input video from LILIN Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras (IPS8368, SP8368, and IPS4208) at Expressway No.82, No.86, and No.88, and Freeway No.1 and No.3, and then produce an analysis of the states and activity of the vehicles, an alarm is sent to traffic command support centre if there is any abnormal instance.
Traffic state is an important traffic flow parameter to travellers as well as the traffic management centre. To leverage the security camera infrastructure already in place, a highway traffic monitoring mobile app was proposed and developed. The government based mobile app - 1968 - is an intelligent incident management system application that monitors and manages traffic along expressways, freeways, and tunnels. The app provides motorists in Taiwan with real time traffic information on incidents so as to mitigate their effect, and at the same time allows quick clearance of accidents. A more pleasant journey for motorists on highways in Taiwan is created as a result.
Taiwan national freeway services are designed for the citizens’ safety. After installing LILIN PTZ camera systems, the National Freeway Bureau has significantly improved the work efficiency of traffic police. LILIN makes the video solutions in the central traffic monitoring centre easy-to-operate with its existing VMS software. The customer is planning to expand the same surveillance solution to the entire country.
