Traffic congestion is not only a problem in the United States, but presents constant challenges in Europe. AXXON, a Russian company, has announced a solution for monitoring, controlling and managing traffic or vehicle fleets.
The software module, AXXON Intellect, has been designed to track vehicles and give fleet operators real-time data. The solution interfaces with existing hardware and software, no matter what type is currently installed.
The solution also is powered with top technologies from Adaptive Recognition system recognizes and logs car license plates -- even on moving vehicles. The captured plates are then compared in a database of numbers. It also recognizes license plates containing Arabic, Latin, Cyrillic Chinese and Korean characters. In the transportation security arena, cameras can monitor up six lanes of traffic, per camera.
“Use LPR to identify stolen or hijacked vehicles, automate transport registration and provide access control at secured locations,” said Harald Lutz, technical manager at AXXON Germany. “You can even use to plan out and monitor important parking areas. For automated parking lots, Auto Intellect helps cut costs, identifies vehicle owners, collects payments and increases security automatically.”
AXXON also introduced its Smart product line, which is a software management system for small- to medium-sized systems. ONVIF compatible, Smart Pro 2.0 can be used in small-scale deployments, such as gas stations, hotels, auto service centers, stores, parking or homes. The system can link up to four video servers, each with 64 cameras.
The system integrates seamlessly with more than 150 different IP camera models and IP video servers. The ONVIF protocol also is supported. With video analytics making an anxious return to the security market, the surveillance system software has been designed with optimal dual use, and draws attention to important events.
