ISS Introduces Wrong Way Alerting Solution

Saint Paul, Minn. November 3, 2017 -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISNS), the industry leading developer of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) above-ground detection technology, today announced the addition of a wrong way alerting solution. The wrong way solution is an all-in-one system that provides reliable wrong way detection and notification on ramps.

Drivers traveling the wrong way on a highway pose a serious safety risk and can result in severe or fatal accidents. The detection of these wrong way drivers is vital to reducing these risks. The effects of these incidents also lead to closures of the highway for many hours, causing reduced travel times, increased congestion and damage to property.  The Automatic Incident Detection (AID) wrong way alerting solution can detect multiple lanes of traffic using a single camera. This system provides accurate detection and fast notification to help improve the safety performance of roadways.

“We recognized the safety and life-saving need for a reliable, accurate wrong way detection system and applied considerable development resources and time into developing this ground-breaking AID solution,” said Jim Cikanek, Director of Product Management for Image Sensing Systems. “Early detection of wrong way drivers reduces the likelihood of a fatal crash and saves lives. Our system is designed to alert motorists and simultaneously notify authorities, allowing them to intercept the driver.”

The Wrong Way Alerting system leverages the high-definition video stream from our patented RTMS Sx-300 HDCAM radar product, providing radar based data collection and video analytics for a complete detection solution. This solution detects wrong way vehicles and sends an automated message alert with an image snapshot via e-mail or text. The system also provides a 30 second video of the event, allowing traffic operators to visually confirm the wrong way vehicle and provide emergency officials the details of the vehicle to expedite enforcement actions. In addition to the video verification and event reporting, the system also enables integration with flashing signs and in-pavement lighting products to provide immediate feedback to the driver.
