ACCESS CONTROL

Product description

‘Restricted Zone’ is a Traffic Access Control System that successfully redirects unwanted traffic to the routes that are of less hindrance to citizens. The system identifies cut-through traffic or other unwanted traffic to be kept out of certain areas or from desired routes through a blacklist based on vehicle classes. This product is configurable to meet different operational applications. For instance, for certain roads or areas, road authorities can restrict access to the general public, allowing access only for exempted vehicles such as police, buses, delivery vehicles and garbage collectors.

Conventional solutions with retractable bollards are prone to accidents, which may even leave the road completely closed during bollard controller failures.  ANPR-based access control systems don’t have any physical obstacles and are always open. Instead, the vehicles are notified through dynamic messaging signs along with optional components such as flashing lights and audio alarms.  Use of license plate and video analytics-based identification and classification checking against a white/black list avoids the need for RFID tags in the vehicles.  It can be managed remotely and is easily applied to existing infrastructure. Seamlessly integrated ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera/other sensors and Road Transport Authority database, ensures higher efficiency and effectiveness of the solution. The proven experience with government programs to avoid city traffic and rewarding complied road users, keeps it interesting in the market.

High-Level Features

Improved availability of roads

The system ensures improved mobility due to the absence of physical barriers and thereby blockages due to their equipment failures. It helps emergency services to pass through the monitored segment, swiftly.

Next Gen Check-post and Decision Making

Performs as “Virtual Check-Point” with barrier free operation by replacing the traditional practices. The ANPR data collected by the system can also be used to other applications as required by the decision makers/ enforcement authorities. The built-in count and classification features keep track of traffic volume for research and development purposes.

Reduced Traffic Violations

Flawless identification of unauthorized entry and user-friendly operator dashboards ensures that all violators are penalized with proper evidence, pushing the commuters from repeating their improper driving behaviors.

Automated system

The system is in integration with the Road Transport Authority database, supports automated enforcement and ticketing. The remote configuration features and unmanned operations of the system make it convenient for the authorities.

Cost effective

The system is a cost-effective and low maintenance solution for access control related challenges, which easily integrates vehicle data from even existing ANPR cameras placed at the entry and exit of a restricted zone. Reduced infrastructure requirements and remote maintenance features make it more cost effective.

Accountability

Well managed workflows, SOPs and, Role -location wise system access for the operators, increase the accountability of operators and supports in auditing, improvement purpose.

Use case: De Bilt

For municipality De Bilt in the Netherlands, we implemented our access control system that successfully directs unwanted traffic to routes that are of less hindrance to citizens. Traffic that is allowed to access the restricted area is not affected by the system.
