In operation the intelligent Evo8 solution creates two independent data sets whichare automatically transmitted to multiple hosts
At the start of 2011 Buckinghamshire County Council, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, placed an order on CA Traffic for the supply of Evo8 integrated ANPR camera systems for use in a journey time application.
A variety of features have been ordered across the different sites including:
- Comms: One system uses 3G/GPRS communications, the others using wired Ethernet.
- Mountings: Cameras have been fitted onto a variety of street furniture including poles and traffic signals.
- Functionality: All systems were initially ordered as single lane cameras, however the additional benefit of receiving two lanes worth of data from a single camera (either bi-directional or uni-directional traffic) ensured that a number of cameras were finally installed as two lane cameras.
- Data: Although Bucks County Council only required license plate data, Thames valley Police required colour images, as such all systems were supplied with IR plate reading cameras and colour overview cameras.
In operation the intelligent Evo8 solution creates two independent data sets whichare automatically transmitted to multiple hosts, one UTMC compliant set of data incorporating license plate information to the Buckinghamshire County Council head office in Aylesbury for journey time calculations and another NAAS compliant set, with additional colour overview images, to the Thames Valley Police HQ in Oxfordshire.
From order placement the initial requirement of cameras were fully installed by CA Traffic within 4 weeks of contract placement.
