Project

The client is a company that delivers high-quality custom solutions for a variety of use cases in smart cities and traffic management. They needed Proof-of-concept of a real-time traffic monitoring system for automatic incident detection in smart cities. We have built an IoT system that collects data about the traffic to generate reports and displays different types of alerts.

Road Traffic Monitoring System

The system aggregates data obtained from cameras, analyzes it to generate reports, and displays alerts.

Problem

Real-time automatic incident detection in smart city

The client needed to build a minimum viable product in short terms to prove the concept of an intelligent road traffic monitoring system for automatic incident detection in smart cities. The system should also collect data about the traffic to generate reports and charts. 

Solution

Intelligent traffic monitoring system, connected with camera sensors, that collects data

We built a real-time traffic monitoring system for automatic incident detection based on data provided from camera sensors. The system displays different types of alerts (pedestrian in/near a motorway, obstacles in the motorway, broken-down vehicles, traffic jam, etc.) and metrics (average journey time, average speed, etc.) in real-time on a map. It registers vehicle registration plates, vehicle driving speed, pedestrians, and more. 

The system aggregates data obtained from cameras that monitor motorways and analyzes it to generate reports. It could tell the average vehicle speed of a certain day or an hour in a motorway, the number of vehicles that go by in a certain amount of time, the average waiting time in a traffic jam, etc.

Results

Road traffic monitoring system with incident detection, implemented in Dublin Port Tunnel

A presentable proof-of-concept was delivered by a single developer in 3 months. The system was tested in the Dublin Port Tunnel – one of the largest urban tunnels of its kind in Europe. It has a typical flow of 26,700 vehicles on a weekday and the system we developed can monitor vehicles traveling through the tunnel, their speed, aggregate all this data, and generate reports.
