EarthCam to Premiere New Traffic Management System at ITS Annual Exposition
International Webcam Leader Also Displays New Advanced Work Zone TrailerCam
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, May 28, 2009 -- EarthCam (www.earthcam.net), the international leader in intelligent network camera technology, will raise the standard in traffic management and infrastructure construction monitoring with two new systems introduced at the ITS America Annual Conference and Exposition in National Harbor, Maryland, June 1-3.
With the latest wireless, solar-powered and easily transported TrailerCam Advanced as its focal point, the EarthCam demonstration at Exhibit 635 combines webcam product engineering experience and software innovation.
The traffic management system enables departments of transportation with enhanced ability to provide automatically triggered information for public travel time estimates and alerts, document patterns and share information. The new product includes a new heavy-duty TrailerCam with mounted webcams and multi-lane detection sensors coupled with EarthCam’s new Traffic Management software.
The software displays a unified interface with complete live and archived multi-lane information at-a-glance. The system includes EarthCam’s dynamic visualization and flow graphs of density, volume, speed and vehicle class by lane for up to 10 lanes. Selectable triggers activate VMS sign information, as well as email and online alerts. Each lane flow is calculated automatically in five minute increments and archived, in weekly, monthly, and annual segments for reference and traffic tracking studies.
"Our close cooperation with 28 state DOT's, as well as federal and international transportation authorities gives our development team the experience to anticipate and prepare for changing traffic management needs," said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. "The Traffic Management Software, for example, turns multiple streams of complex raw data into an easily interpreted, visually dynamic interface for monitoring traffic and issuing event-based alerts," Cury said.
The TrailerCam Advanced System resists up to 90 mph winds untethered. The rugged locking mast provides maximum stability and extends up to 42 feet for overviews of traffic or work zone activity. Coupled with a heavy-duty stainless steel encased, pressurized robotic webcam along with wireless traffic data detection sensors and a VMS sign, the system delivers maximum flexibility. The new system offers all the benefits of EarthCam’s line of TrailerCams including easy, rapid deployment, solar power and wireless connections, as well as sharing information and managing traffic, while archiving images and information thanks to intelligent software.
EarthCam’s live HD and streaming video webcams in locations throughout the world manage, monitor and record critical infrastructure construction and safety. The systems make full use of date and time stamping, weather conditions and time-lapse movies. EarthCam’s stationary, mobile and TrailerCam systems, including EVDO high-speed cellular connections, are built to meet a wide range of terrain, weather and budget requirements.
