ORBIS Incident Detection System

Product description

The ORBIS Incident Detection System detects traffic jam, sudden decelerations, stopped vehicles, objects on the road and speeding on a stretch with the support of a combined video and radar sensors. Detections from a radar and video based sensors are analyzed using an AI & visualized at the centralized traffic management hub, and engage operators at Traffic Management Centre. Once the system detects that the event has normalized (or the detected issue was rectified) the alert is ended by sending a ‘clear’ message. By ensuring a smooth traffic flow, the system contributes to the air quality. Based on the variance selected, the system capabilities increase such as coverage of lanes, accuracy of detection and availability.

System Objectives

ORBIS Incident Detection System aims at the resolution of the below problem statements of any city/road transport authority.

  • Driving Safety risks
  • Traffic jams and delays
  • Reduced Air Quality
  • Economic damage

 Main application Areas:

  • Urban Motorways
  • Bridges and tunnels
  • Special crossings

High-Level Features

Cost Effective

The integrated hardware with the advantages of a radar and a video data sensor, optimizes the infrastructure requirements and hence results in reduced implementation & maintenance cost.

User-Friendly User Interface/Features

Dynamic image quality control features support quick enhancement of output quality even after the alert generation. A radar and video management service at the centralized traffic management hub, presented on a map, allowing all video streams to be visualized and engage operators (allowing camera pan tilt zoom) and address the incident.

Optimized Resource Usage

Configurable streaming video quality (low, medium of high - image resolution, frame rate and compression method adjustment) helps to run the system at flexible cloud-based image processing server or at physical environments.

Increased Traffic Safety

Real time detection of critical incidents helps the authority to take immediate precautionary actions to present unfortunate events. Quick release of traffic directly after the incident reduces traffic congestion.

Use case: Amsterdam

Our ORBIS Radar sensors were used during the pilot project in Amsterdam North. The intention of the project was to verify the use of queues at traffic lights detection with radars to identify if they could optimize the use of buffer space with the goal to prevent gridlocks for commuters traveling between the cities Zaandam and Amsterdam. Through our ORBIS Radar sensors, we successfully delivered reliable queue data that led to a reduction of 5-10% of vehicle loss hours.
