Travel Time Measurement
Traffic management systems are mostly based on the data supplied by local detectors. Frequently, these site-based measuring values must then be processed further to provide road-specific information. This is done using estimation procedures and models which in some cases do not sufficiently reflect reality.
Immediate Data Collection
New approaches involve the direct collection of road-specific data such as travel time and speed. Traffic jams and disruptions can be derived from this data with much more accuracy.Siemens also offers two sustainable solution to support the infrastructure: Sicore and Wimag.
Two high-tech solutions, many advantages
Direct and precise measurement of the travel time
Evaluation of traffic volume
High technological reliability
Easy to install
Sicore is an intelligent camera that automatically recognizes any number plate. The camera includes an evaluation processor and the required software and is a successfully established piece of technology with extensive experience in the field.
Sicore enables almost total initial recognition and identification of vehicles and positive recognition again at a second measuring point. In future, it will also be possible to capture speed and vehicle class. Personal data, such as the number plate, is anonymized by means of a proven and modern encryption procedure immediately after being read. This ensures compliance with data privacy regulations at all times.
For All Applications
Sicore is suitable for measuring the travel time, in particular also for long road sections with a high number of turn off and entry processes. The high recognition rate allows the travel times to be measured with a high accuracy even when many vehicles leave the route between both measuring points and only a few vehicles pass both measuring points. Optionally, Sicore can be used to read hazardous goods plates.
The Wimag Detector
“Wimag” stands for “wireless magnetic detector”, a new detector technology with many benefits:
Wimag can be installed in the road surface within a few minutes
Practical size: 7.5 x 7.5 x 5.0 cm
No wiring is necessary
Long life span of approximately ten years
Wimag measures the magnetic signatures which vary from vehicle to vehicle. The data thus captured is transmitted by radio to a base station and evaluated there. Due to the re-identification rates achievee, this detector is very suitable for the measurement of travel times. This detector is suitable for sections with a small or average number of turn off and entry processes on the route.
