Bangalore, INDIA, June 14, 2011:
MindTree Limited, a global IT and Product Engineering Services Company, today announced the launch of an Automatic Traffic Counting and Classification (ATCC) system to conduct an around-the-clock traffic pattern study for single/intermediate/2 lane roads.
MindTree’s ATCC system is designed to address the key challenges faced in deployment of traditional sensor-based counting and classification systems like portability, accuracy and availability of evidence for audit. ATCC is a video-based solution that provides high accuracy in real time vehicle counting and classification, operating on a 24 x 7 basis. A key differentiator for MindTree’s ATCC system is its capability to classify a vehicle in up to nine different categories. The system captures an image snapshot for every vehicle that is counted and classified, ensuring the integrity of data and reports. ATCC data collected is tamper proof ensuring that the reports cannot be deleted, modified or altered by any user.
“MindTree’s ATCC system highlights our capability to develop innovative, video-based applications for specific industries” said Vinod Deshmukh, President, Technology and Products, Product Engineering Services, MindTree. “Traffic and Transportation infrastructure market is seeing tremendous investment and expansion. Our ATCC system will help this industry implement state-of-the-art solutions to automate business process and make informed decisions,” he added.
MindTree’s ATCC system was deployed by Scott Wilson Pvt Ltd. and funded by the Asian Development Bank for the Karnataka State Highway Improvement Project on Karnataka’s State Highway 35. Venkat Raman Sheela, Director, Scott Wilson India Pvt. Ltd. said “We deployed MindTree’s solution for conducting a week long, around-the-clock traffic pattern study and are extremely pleased with the results. The solution provides granular vehicle classification, and captures evidence for every vehicle counted and classified. The solution is also easy to operate, and tamper proof.”
The ATCC system has been designed to work well on Indian roads that pose unique challenges in terms of diversity of traffic and lack of lane discipline. The system is capable of detecting the direction and speed at which a vehicle is travelling. It provides daily, weekly, monthly and ad-hoc reports in NHAI specified format.
ATCC system is the latest addition to MindTree’s Intelligent Video Surveillance product portfolio; it strengthens MindTree’s ability to offer video-based solutions for traffic and transportation industry.To learn more about MindTree’s video surveillance offerings, please visit www.mindtree.com/ivss.
