MAY 9--Image Sensing Systems (ISS; St. Paul, MN, USA; imagesensing.com) and partner Econolite Control Products (Houston, TX, USA) have introduced Autoscope Terra products, a new generation of video detection solutions that leverage Texas Instruments (TI; Dallas, TX, USA; www.ti.com) DaVinci technology to generate high-performance digital video processing and provide accurate, real-time vehicle and incident detection. ISS created this new generation of advanced, intelligent Autoscope products for use in transportation systems with the DaVinci technology portfolio of products, including the processors, software, and development tools.
The Autoscope Terra family of products, which includes the Autoscope Solo Terra and Autoscope Rack Vision Terra systems, utilizes TI's TMS320DM6446 DSP-based system-on-chip and targets intelligent transportation systems markets, which include intersection control, highway monitoring, and tunnel safety. The DM6446 is optimized for video encode and decode applications with its integrated video accelerators, peripherals, complementary software, and development tools.
Each Autoscope Terra product includes MPEG-4 streaming, allowing video output to be viewed over the Internet by transportation personnel. As a result, incidents such as traffic accidents or a fire within a tunnel can be easily detected to alert the appropriate emergency responder as needed.
The Autoscope Solo Terra and Autoscope RackVision Terra products are distributed in the Americas by Econolite, in Asia Pacific by Flow Traffic Ltd., and in Europe by Image Sensing Systems Europe Ltd. For more information on Autoscope Terra products, visit www.autoscope.com.
