Remote Video Surveillance for Highway Traffic Application

LILIN PTZs were chosen for National Freeway Bureau project in Taiwan

Organization: Taiwan National Freeway Bureau
Location: Expressway No.82, No.86, and No.88, Freeway No.1 and No.3
LILIN Products:IPS8368 ×120, SP8368 ×93, and IPS4208 ×61
Industry: Traffic surveillance
Application: Remote monitoring of highway traffic with LILIN PTZs

Background

Thousands of commuters every day crowd the main highways in Taiwan making their way to their desired destinations. CCTV surveillance systems have been widely used on highway for traffic monitoring, as the cameras are able to provide the most up-to-date information for both traffic management center and the traveler. As the security becomes a high priority for the Taiwanese government, transportation authorities at National Freeway Bureau were looking for enhanced solutions to perform video surveillance.

In recent years there is a rapid increase in the demand for road and other public infrastructure in Taiwan, therefore, LILIN PTZ systems were adopted in order to monitor all the highways across the Taiwan island and maximize emergency dispatching services.






Mission

Highway management in Taiwan sought to ensure the smooth operation of main freeway routes and guarantee the safety of passengers and drivers. To remotely monitor the highway traffic and ensure the overall security, Taiwan National Freeway Bureau decided to integrate IP solutions which would collect real time traffic video and transfer the data from the highway to the traffic control center.

Solutions

The freeway traffic videos are taken as input video from LILIN Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras (IPS8368, SP8368, and IPS4208) at Expressway No.82, No.86, and No.88, and Freeway No.1 and No.3, and then produces an analysis of the states and activity of the vehicles, an alarm is sent to traffic command support center if the e is any abnormal instance.



Traffic state is an important traffic flow parameter to traveler as well as traffic management center. To leverage the security camera infrastructure already in place, a mobile app of highway traffic monitoring was proposed and developed. Government based mobile app - 1968 is an intelligent incident management system application that monitors and manages traffic along expressways, freeways, and tunnels. The app provides motorists in Taiwan with real time traffic information on incidents so as to mitigate its effect, and at the same time allows quick clearance of accidents. A pleasant journey for motorists on highways in Taiwan as a result.

Results

Taiwan national freeway services are designed for the citizens’ safety. After installing LILIN PTZ camera systems, the National Freeway Bureau has significantly improved work efficiency of traffic police. LILIN makes the video solutions in central traffic monitoring center easy-to-operate with its existing VMS software. The customer is planning to expand the same surveillance solution to the entire country.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta-Metro Jaya Police Department Chief Inspector General Tito Karnavian said Jakarta’s security system ranks 50, from 50 major cities in Asia. One issue is that Jakarta lacks digital security. “There are no comprehensive CCTV cameras in Jakarta. It only has NTMC and several from private sectors,” Tito said in City Hall on Monday, December 7.

Tito expects the Jakarta governor’s program to install 6,000 CCTVs in the capital could be implemented next year, so it could immediately monitor the entire capital.

Besides CCTV, other security systems that the capital do not have is an emergency call. Emergency system is highly necessary for society who are in need of emergeny assistance. For example, a woman who is walking alone at midnight and followed by a stalker or gets a heart attack.

“The Governor already has an idea for that, a 119 call. It could be integrated with the police, ambulance, and fire department,” said Tito.

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia -- Kepala Bidang Hubungan Masyarakat Polda Metro Jaya Komisaris Besar Mohammad Iqbal menyatakan Kepolisian telah meminta Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta untuk memasang Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) atau kamera pengawas di seluruh jembatan penyebrangan orang (JPO).

CCTV dinilai penting untuk membantu proses pengamanan di tempat-tempat rawan tindak pidana.

"Kami imbau di semua JPO ada CCTV. Spesifikasinya jangan murahan. Jadi harus terlihat jelas bila dizooming," kata Iqbal di Polda Metro Jaya, Jakarta, Kamis (26/11).

Keberadaan CCTV menurutnya sangat membantu proses proses penyelidikan, khususnya dalam kasus tindak pidana yang sepi dari aktivitas.

Meskipun ada beberapa kasus terekam CCTV tidak terungkap, namun CCTV tetap diperlukan.

"Setidaknya kalau ada CCTV akan lebih mudah terungkap. Pengungkapan kasus tidak mudah. Kalau ada CCTV dilihat kejadiannya," ujar Iqbal.

Lebih lanjut, ketika ditanya soal kasus pemerkosaan seorang perempuan di JPO di kawasan Lebak Bulus, Kebayoran Lama, Jakarta Selatan, Iqbal menyampaikan Kepolisian masih melakukan penyelidikan dan berjajanji akan diungkap secepatnya.

"Semoga cepat tertangkap," ujar Iqbal.

Iqbal juga mengaku Kepolisian telah meningkatkan penjagaan dengan melakukan patroli jalan kaki di JPO yang ada di DKI Jakarta. Hal tersebut dilakukan untuk mengantisipasi terulangnya kasus serupa.

"Kami meningkatkan patroli di JPO. Tapi kejahatan terjadi karena ada niat, situasi sepi dan kondisi korban yang rentan," ujarnya.

Sebelumnya, Gubernur DKI Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) memerintahkan Dinas Perhubungan menambah fasilitas keamanan JPO di Jakarta. Instruksi tersebut dikeluarkan menyusul kejadian pemerkosaan terhadap seorang calon pegawai negeri sipil yang terjadi di JPO.

"Saya katakan untuk memasang lampu terang dan jika perlu di tempat yang rawan dipasang CCTV," kata Ahok.

Ahok mengatakan seluruh CCTV tersebut nantinya akan terkoneksi langsung dengan kepolisian. Sehingga dengan cara tersebut, penanganan kejahatan akan lebih cepat ditangani.
