Hikvision traffic management solution installed in Yangon
Hikvision’s intelligent wide-area integrated traffic management solution has been installed across the city of Yangon, Myanmar (formally Burma) to aid in safe vehicle flow and help to improve driving standards. The system was selected after a tender for bids was issued by the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC), and it is based on a winning bid by China Railway 21st Bureau Company Ltd., which recommended a Hikvision-based traffic management solution.
Acting on the DICTCS (Design, Installation, Commissioning of Traffic Control System) project as a technical consultant, Hikvision worked with China Railway 21st Bureau Company Ltd. and YCDC to detail a traffic control solution that would guarantee the system's performance capability, seamless operation, and future-proof expansion. To control the city-wide traffic system, Hikvision supplied the ITS (Intelligent Video Management System), designed specifically for traffic management applications. The platform integrates vehicle checkpoints, violation detections, video surveillance, illegal parking detection, intersection control, and data integration.
Central to the traffic management system employed at 154 traffic light controlled junctions is the Hikvision ITS Comprehensive Control Platform, consisting of data servers servicing management, database, streaming, storage, traffic events, and traffic devices.
Ensuring better traffic flow, at points across the city, Traffic Signal Controller technology is used to enforce multiple traffic rules. When a vehicle in violation passes an ITS-equipped checkpoint, the system captures a photo and automatically links significant data, including license plate recognition and speed value to the evidential image.
Vehicle speed is captured by radar or by segmenting road sections, and smooth traffic flow is ensured by the Running Red Light Detection System. Working in conjunction with Traffic Light Signal detection, Hikvision camera technology provides evidential video of traffic light violations, with images used for violation notification. It also keeps an eye on the quality of the city's traffic flow 24/7.
Hikvision cameras are employed in the city to monitor parking via the Illegal Parking Detection System. Traffic speed dome cameras capture images of any vehicle illegally parked. The system can manage common driving violations, such as intersection abuse, wrong-way driving, direction deviations, prohibited lane changes, crossing lanes, traffic counting, and reverse driving detection.
Relieving traffic congestion hot spots, the system supplies road users with current traffic status, reporting traffic flow on giant roadside Traffic Guidance Display monitors.
System data allows the traffic management team to reduce bottlenecks, improve traffic flow, and ensure the best road-user travel experience. Citywide road network camera surveillance is displayed in the control room on a Hikvision HD LCD video monitor wall.
