24 of the cameras installed are Wisenet XNO-6120R/TD bullet cameras equipped with Traffic Data, an edge-based application developed in cooperation with Sprinx Technologies which facilitates the collection of statistical data about vehicle flow. By tracking the vehicles moving in a camera field of view, the application is able to provide information on vehicle counts, classification and average speed.
24 of the other cameras installed are Wisenet XNO-6120R/FNPs. These feature Roadway Licence Plate Recognition application which is able to help the local authority’s control room operators detect illegally parked vehicles and other traffic infringements. Effective with all European number plate formats, the application has more than a 95% recognition accuracy in whatever environmental conditions, even when vehicles are moving at speeds of up to 150 km/h.
The Wisenet XNO-6120R is a 2-megapixel bullet camera which is able to capture high definition images with the help of a 12x optical zoom, digital image stabilisation with built-in Gyro sensor, a Defog feature and built-in IR illumination. Part of the Wisenet X camera series, the XNO-6120R features the world’s best Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). It performs at up to 150dB to produce clear images from scenes that contain a challenging mix of bright and dark areas that normally result in overexposed or underexposed images. The processing power of the Wisenet 5 chipset incorporated into the Wisenet X series provides an opportunity to run on-board third-party video analytics plug-ins for different applications, such as number plate recognition, vehicle counting/classification and real time automatic incident detection.
“The data captured by the Traffic Data and ANPR applications running onboard the cameras, allows us to far better manage the existing levels of traffic, whilst also helping us capture and store valuable data which we will be able to analyse to assist us to plan for the future."
