Vehicle counting and identification - 365mesh

Vehicle counting and identification

Make decisions with vehicle data

It is important to understand how roads, vehicles and parking spaces are used, to determine traffic levels and directional flows and understand how the community uses these expensive assets. The cost of road congestion is expected to reach $38.8 billion per annum across Australia’s largest cities. Integrating IoT with a wide range of smart cameras to provide real-time traffic information provides data to make informed decisions on pick-up and drop-off zones, taxi management, buses and parking spaces.

Using IoT you can address the rising demands on public transportation, with 1 in 8 Australians everyday using one form of public transport for their regular commute. Adopt IoT to increase the efficiency of public transport and reduce disruption by determining high traffic areas and making informed decisions. Use vehicle counting and identification to help understand what is happening on your roads.
