Digital Industrial Cameras for ITS and Traffic Applications

Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) offers a wide range of digital industrial cameras for ITS and traffic applications. Deployed in the most sophisticated ITS systems around the world, AVT cameras are ideal for a wide range of ITS applications that require excellent image quality, high resolution, advanced camera controls and overall high performance in demanding traffic environments and varying light conditions.

Whether you need a camera for your open road tolling, congestion charging, ANPR, or speed and red light enforcement system, we have the model that will drive your system.

Digital industrial cameras with CCD and CMOS sensors

AVT offers a wide range of cameras from VGA to 16 megapixel resolution. Along with Kodak CCD and CMOS sensors, several AVT cameras also feature Sony EXview HAD CCD sensors that provide high sensitivity and near IR performance, making them ideal for night-time imaging using an IR light source, minimising shutter times and producing sharp, high-quality images with excellent dynamic range.

Our Prosilica GX cameras feature the fastest CCD sensors currently available, offering resolutions from one to eight megapixels. Using the Prosilica GX in an open-road tolling application, system integrators are able to reduce the number of cameras per lane and improve the accuracy of license plate recognition by capturing multiple images of each vehicle.

Easy integration with traffic system peripherals

Our Prosilica GX cameras offer integrated lens control and support video auto-iris, focus, zoom and iris motorized lens control, eliminating the need for an additional control box and communication interfacing.

All AVT cameras offer many advanced features: low-latency trigger for timely image capture, flexible exposure, gain and binning modes to adapt to any outdoor lighting conditions, digital shutter (global shutter), high sensitivity to minimize motion blur and image distortion, as well as configurable I/O to synchronize the image-capture process with traffic system peripherals such as ground loop, radar or laser triggers and LED or Xenon lighting.

Gigabit Ethernet cameras

AVT offers cameras with gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and FireWire (IEEE1394a, IEEE1394b) interfaces. The AVT camera line-up includes the Prosilica GX, the fastest camera in the world capable of providing a sustained maximum data rate of 240MB per second using two ports configured as a link aggregation group (LAG). The high bandwidth facilitates continuous image output and supports high-resolution imagers operating continuously at very high frame rates, 24/7.
