Axis video surveillance for traffic monitoring in Yamal
Axis IP cameras for law enforcement serve to increase the transport system safety in Tarko-Sale
“The customer feedback witnesses that the system turned into an effective tool for solving day-to-day and specific issues of public and infrastructure safety. The lessons learned give us a chance to offer effective solutions to specific problems peculiar to any site, and install equipment bringing the real benefit at the places where traffic violations are common.” Yevgeny Malikov, ISS Business Development Director.
Tarko-Sale is an administrative center of Purovskiy District in Yamalo-Nenets autonomous region, with a population of over 20,000. While building the “Safe city”, local authorities faced an issue of creating an automated system for detecting traffic violations, taking into consideration the climate conditions of the extreme north: subzero temperatures (up to -30º) prevail from October till April.
The system deployment was entrusted to Axis partner, ISS, who implemented their dedicated solution, Auto- Cam-IP, with AXIS P1365 Network Cameras as a backbone to automatically take snapshots or record video of traffic violations on the highway. Cameras integrated with a traffic light controller detect driving through red lights and failure to obey stop signs at crossroads. The cameras installed along the city roads record license plates that are further compared to the database of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate. The videos and metadata are processed in SecurOS servers. The traffic violation data is also sent to the Center of automated registration for administrative violations, where an operator views each event and decides whether any penalty is appropriate.
During the summer of 2014, the traffic safety systems in Tarko-Sale were deployed. Eventually, the precise automatic registration of traffic violations simplified the documentation management and contributed to crime prevention. In 2015, members of Yamalo-Nenets autonomous region administration stated that the system would be deployed throughout the entire region.
