Bosch Security and Safety Systems provide IP cameras with built-in Video Analytics and metadata streaming for intelligent transportation system solutions. For decades, Bosch has developed Video Analytics technology used in vehicles for driver assistance, semi-autonomous and autonomous driving, and intelligent safety systems. This same foundational analytics technology is inside Bosch IP cameras.
Video Analytics built-in to Bosch IP cameras enables intelligent devices that act as video sensors in detection and monitoring solutions to alert people to safety risks, such as a queue at the exit ramp, slow or stopped vehicles, objects in the road, or wrong-way drivers. Integration with highway information solutions providers enables events detected by the cameras to trigger messages about these incidents to be sent automatically to smart vehicles or to dynamic message signs to provide advanced notice to drivers entering the area.
Using video as a sensor is also a key component in intelligent intersection solutions. With Video Analytics, detection of pedestrians in a crosswalk can alert the traffic controller to preempt traffic signals, activate lighting to highlight pedestrian presence to approaching traffic, and trigger third-party technology to broadcast messages to smart vehicles.
Along with automatic detection capabilities, the cameras also gather information on roadway usage for data-driven decision making in highway and urban infrastructure planning. As a result, city planners and traffic engineers can create a smarter and safer transportation ecosystem.
