ARH AT THE FOREFRONT OF TRAFFIC TECHNOLOGY
Are you ready for a game changer? A totally new concept? New software? A new solution? Prepare for a product launch at this year's Intertraffic Amsterdam trade show – an announcement that is expected to redefine ANPR as we know it.
As a developer-manufacturer of the software and hardware components of OCR and ANPR imaging devices for over 26 years, ARH designs and delivers innovative yet field tested solutions, including the world’s No 1 ANPR engine, dedicated cameras, passport readers and smart security solutions. Systems built on ARH’s intellect are utilized to monitor traffic, optimize traffic control, collect road toll and generally streamline transportation. ARH’s ITS product development is in line with a new Smart City endeavour: to automatically forecast, recognize and manage challenging traffic issues.
Two cameras and three of the company's field-tested integrated traffic management solutions will be demonstrated at the expo.
EXTRA OVERVIEW LENS TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE
The new SmartCAM is a modular ANPR camera with a built-in smart illuminator and a powerful industrial-grade computer with 2+4 cores to effortlessly handle even the most complex license plates. Due to the modular design, ARH is able to offer a wide range of SmartCAMs. Our dual lens dual sensor camera's primary lens and sensor focus on the license plate, while the second Overview lens makes sure that you won’t have to take your eyes off of the surroundings.
UNIQUE IMAGE-BASED VEHICLE DETECTION ABOARD ANPR CAMERA
The new FreewayCAM is a fixed modular IP camera purpose-built for ANPR. It is a robust, sturdy workhorse camera which performs reliably in any weather or light conditions. It provides images ideal for ANPR even in high-speed traffic at zero visible light. The IP67 certified, vandal-proof, metal body houses a powerful computer running ARH’s one-of-a-kind – purely image-based – Vehicle Detection algorithm. As a result, passing vehicles are registered as individual events including image, license plate, time, location and speed data without the need to process every single frame. There are no lost events even when the license plate is damaged or missing.
TOLL ENFORCEMENT – TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT
TrafficSpot® is our scalable lane controller toll enforcement and traffic enforcement middleware, based on the most advanced single-gantry, multi-lane design that can monitor both free-flow and stop-and-go traffic. While applying non-intrusive technology, TrafficSpot® can reach 100% vehicle detection rate, therefore the toll leakage rate can be zero. Each passing vehicle is classified into one of the many (up to 28) predefined vehicle categories. It utilizes both radar sensors and purpose-made cameras for accurate ALPR and ADR recognition. Axle count is an available option. Traffic data containing category, speed, time and location, images, even video, are locally recorded and transferred to a central database. No need for an induction loop: ARH’s ITS is entirely video-stream-based. It is a flexibly customizable middleware with the benefit of being platform-independent – ready to be integrated to any local or national infrastructure of toll collection or traffic enforcement system.

DEDICATED TRAFFIC DATA SERVER
GDS is a high capacity, scalable and flexible ITS middleware with 3 benefits: superfast and completely safe data storage; customizable GUI to display all data and to generate statistics; well-documented interface to send and receive data when communicating with external systems. GDS comes in handy in systems where multiple traffic points generate millions of data packages per day. Benefits: precise real-time data on traffic flow, system health-monitoring, statistics.
PORTABLE FULLY AUTOMATIC SPEED AND TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT – IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN
ARH S1 has no competitors: it’s a speed camera, an ANPR camera and a traffic enforcement camera – all in one. S1 has multiple mounting options – roadside tripod, vehicle front seat or cargo area – for low-profile operation. Benefits include: complete portability; manual/automatic operation; onboard ANPR/LPR and data processing; certified speed detection; smart evidence photos and videos complete with number plate and time/location data. A unique feature: fully automated traffic offence detection including driving through red lights, driving in a bus lane or emergency lane and ignoring a no entry sign.
We are hoping to see you at the show. Remember that ARH’s new product will be unveiled at the Intertraffic Amsterdam show – prepare for the BIG announcement.
