ST. PAUL, Minn., June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISS) (Nasdaq:ISNS) announced today that its wholly owned Hong Kong based subsidiary has supplied and installed 360 units of Autoscope video detection equipment for integration with traffic signal controllers in the large Chinese city of Jining.
Local company Anhui Keli supplied the traffic signal controllers and the system integrator of an urban traffic control system covering 90 major intersections was Beijing based STONE ITS Integration Co., Ltd. The Autoscope video detection systems provide presence detection as well as highly accurate traffic data including volume, speed and occupancy for the system. Installation and commissioning was completed in 2013 and the system was successfully handed over to the city in the first quarter of 2014. During the 2-year defect liability period, ISS is supporting the vehicle detection system.
"Chinese intersections have traditionally used intrusive loop detection, leading to expensive and cumbersome maintenance issues," said Dan Skites, ISS Managing Director of EMEA / APAC. "We are very pleased to see a trend towards non-intrusive technologies such as Autoscope video. There are an increasing number of Chinese cities evaluating video image processing for intersection detection and we are very optimistic of our near-future opportunities in the Chinese market."
After last year's completion of installation and commissioning, Zhang Jun, Executive Director of system integrator STONE commented, "We are pleased to partner with ISS on this project. This is the largest project for intersection detection using Autoscope we have completed in China. We are excited to contribute to improving the road traffic environment in Jining City. We think that in the coming years, we will see several similar cooperation opportunities in this growing market."
Jining City is located in a coal mining area in the southern part of Shandong province. Jining prefecture has a population of over 8 million people and the rapid economic growth and explosive increase of individual vehicle ownership have lead to significant problems with traffic congestion.
