What are the benefits of ITS solutions?
ITS or intelligent transport systems are in use across the globe. This system plays a
vital role in saving lives, time as well as money. It eases the task of the driver,
reducing his/her risk of being involved in a car crash. In countries around the world,
road crashes cause suffering and loss of lives. Most collisions occur due to the start
and stop nature of the traffic in congested areas. With the right use of ITS solutions,
traffic flow can be made smoother, congestion can be reduced and hence the
occurrence of accidents will also reduce.
ITS is basically an advanced application that aims to provide innovative services
related to different modes of transportation and traffic management. It enables the
users to be better informed about road conditions, helping them ensure a safer and
more coordinated use of transport networks. In developed countries, most ITS
systems involve the surveillance of roadways which is necessary for homeland
In developing countries, there has been a significant progress from rural to
urbanized habitats. Most areas have become urban without the formation of
suburbs or significant motorization. Automobiles increase congestion in multimodal
transportation systems, causing air pollutions and safety risks. Therefore, effective
ITS becomes a necessity to reduce congestion and avoid accidents.
Information provided through the ITS is used in directing traffic away from
accidents. It is also used in alerting emergency services as soon as the incident
occurs. Productivity is also reduced due to congestion, resulting in flow-on delays
and rise in business costs. But with the right type of intelligent transport system,
productivity can be increased by finding unique ways of increasing the capacity of
current infrastructure. ITS not only plays an important role in reducing congestion
but it can also reduce the consumption of fuel and emission of greenhouse gases.
This will have positive environmental effects.
As far as the applied technologies are concerned, intelligent transport systems vary
considerably. They can range from basic management systems such as traffic signal
control systems and car navigation to more advanced applications that integrate
live data and feedback from different sources. There are various forms of wireless
communication technologies that have been proposed for ITS.
Use of Domes Cameras
For street surveillance, high quality dome cameras security system is also used.
Dome cameras are named due to their dome like shape and are most commonly
used in surveillance systems inside homes or retail stores. They are quite
fashionable and easily blend in their surroundings. Since they are dome shaped, it
becomes difficult to tell which direction the dome camera lens is aiming.
There are certain factors to remember when buying a dome camera for surveillance.
You need to determine if you need night vision and if the area where you will install
the camera is susceptible to tampering or vandalism. If the answer to the latter is
yes, then you will need a vandal dome camera. You can buy a varifocal dome
camera if you want to adjust the focal distance to exactly where you need it.
