Smart Cities turn information in to meaningful messages with VCA

Bill Flind, Ipsotek CEO, quoted in A&S Magazine article, Smart Cities turn information in to meaningful messages with VCA.

 

“Safe cities are more concerned with making traffic and people flow more efficiently together with improving safety,” said Bill Flind, CEO of Ipsotek. Therefore, he added, “VCA shouldn’t be visualized as working alone but as part of the wider situational awareness system providing managers with suggested responses and action plans”. One example is the image recognition and incident detection system, developed by Ipsotek, for Transport for London (TfL), the department in charge of keeping London’s transportation systems flowing. When a road in central London was blocked by a vehicle that had lost control across the carriageway, the system identified within 30 seconds that this was an incident requiring rapid intervention. Predefined contingency plans alerted the relevant TfL staff allowing them to take immediate remedial action including re-sequencing of traffic lights to divert traffic away from the incident spot. The ability to control rapidly developing build-ups of traffic around accidents, keeping traffic flowing through the use of an “always-on” system significantly reduced journey times in London.
