Monitoring and Automatic Recording of Traffic Offences at Railway Crossings
ATOM MS is an efficient means of recording traffic offences and reducing accident probabilities at railway crossings. Offenders are identified as of the moment when the red traffic light is enabled.
The traffic light controller transmits the signal that the traffic light is enabled into the system. On expiry of a preset duration required for unconditional exit of delayed vehicles from the railway track area, the system records the vehicles within its monitoring range as offenders.
It also allows the system to notify the incoming trains of the vehicles in the railway tracks. The data may be transmitted via fiber optic or wireless communications.
Traffic Offences recorded at Railway Crossings:
|Entering railway crossings with closed or closing barriers or red traffic lights.
|Stopping at railway crossings.
|Parking at railway crossings.
|Entering opposing lanes at railway crossings.
