Advanced Traffic Management System

Highway Traffic Management System (HTMS)/(ATMS) comprises a set of intelligently integrated roadside equipment’s connected to provide a high quality highway solution ensuring a safe & secure journey.

It’s a Intelligent transport system that collects information from roadside equipment’s to ensure smooth traffic movement and timely reaction to hazardous situations. Traffic data is gathered, consolidated and analysed at a traffic control centre and relayed to drivers in real time through various channels such as mobile apps, variable message signs and radio.

The objective is to improve safety and response time to incidents using automatic incidence detection technology. It can also help in managing congestion by providing quick response to incidents and providing traffic information to highway users.

HTMS Technology Incorporates

Central Control Room

The Central Control Room (CCR) allows you to control and regulate an entire section of the highway traffic. From this room you get clear feeds of the traffic from equipments, such as CCTVs, VIDS etc, installed along particular sections of the highway. The CCR also generates and disseminates important information by means of various message signs to facilitate intervention.
Additional Features:
  • Ability to not only monitor but also track the lifecycle of the product

  • Brings about the standard operating procedure(SOP) for any incident by triggering all the support systems and tracking their outcome

  • Provides real time predicted traffic analysis to the road users based on an incident

Central Control Room

Emergency Call Box (ECB)

Emergency Call Box
Roadside emergency phones or call boxes provide fast, improved, and modern response to accidents or emergency situations, and help improve road safety. They use communication networks based either on OFC or GSM. The ECB are pillared on either side of the road, and include also a control centre, usually located in the Maintenance and Operation base (MOB).

Variable Message Sign (VMS)

VMS is a system that helps to send information directly to drivers. Along the road are strategically placed boards with Variable Messages displaying real time information to road users such as
  • The speed limit, and traffic flow or congestions

  • Diversions, road closures, or alternative routes

  • Hazardous situations, work ahead, in-coming traffic situation

  • The weather condition, the date, time, temperature

  • Availability of public transport

Variable Message Sign

Close Circuit TV (CCTV)

Close Circuit TV (CCTV)

CCTV monitoring methods are used for surveillance of the road section. CCTV cameras with pan, tilt and zoom features, placed at a high level are perfect for highway surveillance, while vandal-proof dome cameras are best for high criminality locations. Multiple types of cameras can help record and display video with ability to schedule video recording or trigger recording inresponse to an incident.

Central control room uses the feeds of the traffic from CCTVs installed along particular sections of the highway. It unbales CCR to Integrate with Video Analytics Software for Incident Detection also.

Automatic Traffic Counter and Classifier (ATCC)

ATCC detects, counts and classifies all traffic passing where it is installed. It measures the speed of vehicles and sends a report at interval time periods. Both the ATCC and LPR (License Plate Recognition) Systems can function simultaneously for the implementation or charging roadside levy or for monitoring highway occurrences.

An ATCC counts in real time the traffic flow. It is able to detect speed, queues, congestions, and classify vehicles. Information obtained is divulged through the VMS. It therefore provides assistance to drivers making them aware of traffic conditions, helping them make decisions to avoid hazards to their advantage. In principle, by respecting the speed limit, lots of highway accidents can be avoided.

Cooperative Systems Like Mobile Apps

Miag - Amdac Pro
CMECS is an all-inclusive and expandable platform for transportation management solutions which offers insight and system-wide integration of information. It centralizes the command of traffic operations by exploiting data obtained from various systems collected from different locations. The system provides a solution for cities to manage the transportation network and increases the driving experience of road users. Particularly, CMECS offers assistance to transit and traffic authorities to:
  • Decrease road congestions

  • Increase visibility of incidents across a diverse set of traffic systems

  • (Ameliorate) Improve the response to incidents and road conditions

  • Historical data and pattern analysis on road incidents

  • Estimate the traffic situation, an hour in advance

  • Increase the visibility of transit vehicles, fleet services, etc

  • Estimate transit vehicles arrival times

  • Analyze the performance and traffic congestion of the transit system

Meteorological Data System (MDS)

Meteorological centres make analyses of a variety of weather conditions, which provide information to drivers as they travel. MDS inform drivers in advance for any changes in the weather. It is completely electronic standalone unit having its own power source from rechargeable batteries.

HIGHWAY – Visibility sensors can improve highway safety by providing immediate and accurate knowledge of roadside weather and visibility conditions. It continuously monitors roadside visibility to assist drivers with safer and faster experience.

Metro Infrasys Metrological Data processing system has been a preferred choice over the years for its reliable operating and easy site installation that provides an accurate, low powered, standalone operation requiring no human intervention.

Meteorological Data System

Video Incident Detection Systems (VIDS)

Video Incident detection System
VIDS assists infrastructure controllers to detect and solve problems in the network and increase safety level for drivers. Incidents such as pedestrian, stationary vehicles or vehicles on the wrong side of the road are detected automatically by digitally processing video streams.

Speed Enforcement System/Red Light Violation Detection System

Speed Enforcement cameras with video analytics and radars are used to accurately determine the speed of the over speeding vehicle along with the number plate for the same.

The police is no longer required to stand on the road and fine violators. The entire process of identifying and recording traffic violations can be carried out in the control room. An integrated network of cameras captures images and video of reckless vehicles, illegal parking, and accidents. The data (consisting of violation type and place/time of violation) is sent to the Control Center, and generates Challans (tickets) after fetching the required data from the Road Transport Office server.
