Effective incident management depends completely on the rapid detection of these incidents and every minute lost adds to the danger. Rapid detection time and verification can dramatically reduce impact, avoid secondary accidents and close adjacent lanes, loading to a rapid intervention by rescuers.
The combination of information and images is an enormous advantage in the field of automatic incident detection. Automatically generated alarms alert controllers when an incident occurs, providing them information as to the nature, gravity and location of the incident, as well as relevant traffic data. In this manner, when an incident occurs the operator can observe what has happened, the quantity of vehicles involved, the number of possible victims, what is the general traffic situation at that point, etc.
Traficon detectors distributed by SUTEC S.A. offer automatic detection of incidents concerning the following:
Detained Vehicles
Suicidal drivers
Loss of cargo
Traffic pile-ups (jams)
Sudden speed decrease
