Roads and more
Road segment includes all elements that are related to road transportation and traffic. Roads, tunnels, bridges, ports, terminals and logistics centers are examples of such elements which are part of the road segment. Also the police, fire and rescue services are tightly linked with the road ecosystem.
A traffic and transport monitoring system is likely to comprise other solutions than video surveillance as well. Applications and functionalities for traffic monitoring and other operations can easily be integrated into the Teleste S-VMX video and information management system or Teleste S-VMX can be integrated to 3rd party umbrella system for handling the video surveillance part. In some systems, the feed from the traffic monitoring cameras is shared with the radio and TV stations, which in turn can prevent massive traffic jams in case of emergency or severe road accident.
Video surveillance system in the road infrastructure can significantly improve the safety of the citizens. The video surveillance prevents traffic violations and helps police to capture citizens that are considered as threat to the other citizens. The road safety is considerably improved, especially in the areas with snow and ice by using video surveillance in the decision making for road maintenance and variable message signs and speed limits. Finally, the operative preparedness of the fire and rescue services can be significantly improved with modern video surveillance system.
