ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Image Sensing Systems. Inc. (Nasdaq:ISNS), the world-leading developer of above-ground detection and information management solutions for the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) sector, announced today that Autoscope RTMS G4 radars are in use for traffic management for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The radars were provided by ISS' regional partner Allied Global LLC to the Olympic Games Transport Directorate. The Transport Directorate is responsible for the operation of the traffic management system and is using Autoscope RTMS G4 to monitor traffic conditions, display speed-map representation of the highway and determine travel time for commuters.
Dan Skites, Managing Director of Traffic Management for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific for Image Sensing Systems, Inc. said, "With increased traffic expected during the Olympics, the Olympic Games Transport Directorate needed a traffic management solution that was accurate, cost effective and non-intrusive to the roadways. The Autoscope RTMS G4 was able to fulfill their need by offering an above-ground radar based sensor that works in conjunction with traffic management software to deliver accurate traffic reporting that can be provided to third parties to inform travelers."
The traffic management system includes a number of Autoscope RTMS G4 units that were installed on the road network from the city of Sochi to Krasnay Polyana, also know as the "Mountain Cluster." Data is sent to the Sochi Traffic Management Center every five minutes for monitoring. The system also monitors the working conditions of the traffic counting stations.
