Image Sensing Systems, Inc., a developer of Intelligent Transportation Systems computer-enabled detection and traffic control technology, has reportedly provided RTMS G4 radars for the purpose of traffic management on the Sea to Sky Highway for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada.
The Sea to Sky Highway rises from the Strait of Georgia to Whistler Mountain where many Olympic events are to be held. Miller-Capilano is said to be handling the operation of the highway and will use RTMS G4 to monitor traffic conditions, display speed-map representation of the highway and determine travel time for commuters.
ISS claims to have well established in the market through its computer-enabled detection products, including the Autoscope machine-vision family and the RTMS radar family. These products are said to combine embedded software signal processing with sophisticated sensing technologies for use in transportation, environmental and safety/surveillance management.
CED is a group of technologies in which software examines the outputs of complex sensors to determine what is happening in the field of view in real-time.
'We needed a solution that was not intrusive to our highway operations,” Tom Cloutier, assistant operations manager of Miller-Capilano, said “ISS was able to provide us with a proven solution that was cost effective and non-intrusive. Its wireless component and accurate traffic reporting, in conjunction with the management software assured that we have the information for our operations and we can provide traveler information to third parties for the commuters.”
