Dynamic Traffic Control

Reacting on the Current Traffic Situation.


The use of highly energy-efficient LED Variable Message Signs (VMS) allows to convey dynamic information to the road users in line with the current traffic situation. Speed funnels help avoid rear-end collisions when traffic flow comes to a halt. During the rush-hours, the hard shoulder can be flexibly assigned the status of an additional lane, providing an additional 25% capacity on the existing road network. Dynamic route information panels indicate alternative routings in case of traffic jams or road blocks. Weigh-in-motion technology is used to monitor overloaded heavy goods vehicles.

Major Applications


The network wide management of traffic flows optimally uses the capacity of the whole motorway network.
Traffic problems on one motorway are no longer considered local but solved in a supra-regional context, national and cross-border.

Benefit

  • Capacity increase by using the entire motorway network
    for route recommendations

Function

  • Large-size, dynamic and programmable variable message signs (VMS) inform the road users about alternative routes and congestions
  • A central software evaluates the situation and controlls and activates the VMS via their road side units.
  • The VMS display informs about congestions and gives diversion recommendations using stored content (messages) according to the current situation.

Automated systems for check-points of heavy goods vehicles

Benefits

  • Safer working conditions
  • Less personnel needed
  • Automated diversion of vehicles via software


Function

  • ANPR cameras capture licence plate
  • Video cameras show detected vehicle
  • Data is transmitted to an intelligent outstation
  • Checking personnel selects vehicles to be diverted for inspection via browser-based software
  • Licence plate displayed on VMS prompts driver to exit at the checkpoint
