Indian toll surveillance system to utilize Infinova cameras

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ – November 2, 2010 – Infinova today announced that peripheral ring roads, expressways, interchanges and toll plazas on the outskirts of Bangalore developed by NICE (Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises) will be using a variety of Infinova cameras as part of a customized independent vision-based solution created by Infinova and DELOPT (Deepti Electronics & Electro-Optics Pvt Ltd) to be installed at all eight plazas and their 106 total toll lanes.

"Since the plazas are located throughout the entire length of the highway, it was extremely difficult for management to manage tolls and control revenue pilferage," explains Milind Borkar, Infinova vice president sales for India and the Middle East. "With our wide range of cameras, we are able to provide NICE with exactly what has been needed for each specific section of the highway."

Infinova’s V1044B IR illuminated day/night IP65-rated cameras will be used for lane monitoring. These 111 cameras will watch over each and every lane, automatically capturing images and license plate details of all vehicles passing, and then passing on the images for recording on a 24/7 basis. These cameras will be connected to DELOPT’s Image Camera Module (ICM) which includes additional information such as lane ID, user ID, and date and time details which are overlaid onto the image nondestructively. A live feed of the lane cameras will be also provided to the toll collection stations.

At bigger plazas, nine Infinova V1749NIP PTZ cameras will be installed to monitor traffic while, at smaller plazas and administrative buildings, 52 Infinova V6642 IP fixed dome day/night cameras will be used. The video management system at each plaza will record the video feeds from its cameras and provides playback and extract options. At the tollbooths, images caught by the ICM will also be stored in the plaza server to compare with data from point-of-sale transactions from each lane of that plaza.

All cameras can be monitored from the Central Control Center through the system’s wireless infrastructure.
