Izmir, the third most populous city in Turkey with a population in the region of 2.9 million, has deployed Samsung cameras in support of its Full Adaptive Traffic Management system which provides real-time integrated traffic management as a means of reducing traffic jams and increasing road safety.
The Samsung SNP-6320H Full HD 32 x optical zoom PTZ speed domes installed at key locations throughout the city are providing HD images in support of field devices such as detectors, signal transmitters, traffic signals and control devices.
Collectively, they provide the ability to measure the volume of traffic at crossroads and enable signal times to be adjusted in real-time in order to minimise traffic congestion.
The SNP-6320H models boast an auto-tracking feature, are weatherproof and have heaters powered by PoE+ to withstand extremely low temperatures, as well as a Digital Image Stabilisation feature which negates the effects of vibration.
Images captured by the SNP-6320H models are recorded to Samsung’s SRN-4000 64-channel NVRs. These are able to simultaneously record and multi-stream the transmission of images at a high bandwidth speed of 400 Mbps and have a large on-board storage capacity via 12 hot-swappable internal hard drives. Power reliability is enhanced by way of a dual power supply.
Camera images are transmitted to a dedicated Control Room. They can also be viewed by the general public via TV, the Internet and social media channels.
The Samsung SNP-6320H speed domes are also helping the city of Izmir to monitor the movement of public transport and Emergency Services vehicles. In total,1,500 buses as well as 100 ambulances and 164 fire trucks will wirelessly communicate with signalised crossroads and their movements monitored with the help of the speed domes as part of a traffic priority system.
The Full Adaptive Traffic Management system has been implemented by EDS Elektronik (a Samsung distributor)in collaboration with systems integrator Mavi Güvenlik.
