The company's recognition technologies can be found in very continent, in countries ranging from Australia to Brazil, and from Saudi Arabia to Korea.
ARH acts as a sensor provider who will produce and provision the actual sensors to be used. As a direct consequence, ARH also contributes its products and expertise to the data integration task as well as to the real-world sensor data integration activities in WP4.
The following solutions should be a strong and efficient support for the project:
Intelligent ANPR Camera with built-in software
ARH Inc has cameras for use as intelligent sensors for traffic monitoring. Depending on information should be collected, there can be used SmartCAM and SpeedCAM as other special solutions as well. These cameras combine intelligent license plate recognition, data storing and communication capabilities with optionally speed measurement and categorisation radar to form a smart traffic sensor in a single sealed, robust and waterproof unit.
TrafficSpot® is a single-gantry, multi-lane on-site measurement management system. This intelligent traffic system is designed to monitor a wide range of vehicle attributes in a modular design. It is a network of scalable, complete and fix traffic control points with self-monitoring function, encrypted data communication and several optional add-ons (e.g. DSRC, weather station, S.O.S. telephone, etc.) within one, integrated system. TrafficSpot® automatically recognizes the number plates (ANPR) and optionally measures vehicle dimensions and speed.
Traffic Data Management
Globessey® Data Server (GDS), is a combined data server and middleware that gathers information from different endpoints (TrafficSpot®s) to make them available for various applications (which can be 3rd party solutions as well) through a standardized interface. It comes with a dedicated graphical user interface (GUI), where the operators can manage the processes and can produce statistics. The interface is available via a HTML browser, so there is no need for installation beyond the server.
