Kapsch Traffic Com wins Intertraffic award in Amsterdam 

17 April 2012

The Intertraffic award for innovation in the "Safety" category has gone to Austrian telecoms company Kapsch Traffic Com for a camera calibration solution to enhance traffic safety in tunnels.

Smart and innovative thinking is evaluated every year by a high-ranking international jury at Intertraffic Amsterdam, one of the world’s biggest trade exhibitions for traffic infrastructure, traffic management, road safety and parking.

This year the Intertraffic Innovation Award in the “Safety” category went to Kapsch TrafficCom for its new tunnel safety product, Automatic Camera Calibration (ACC). With ACC, the Austrians have presented a revolutionary way of calibrating cameras inside tunnels. The new system stands out for its extraordinary speed, precision, cost-efficiency and the unambiguous safety aspect. While older methods required up to 50 hours in the tunnel, ACC enables completion of the same process within 2 hours. With ACC the calibration is also up to 10 times more accurate, as well as being easier to use.

Kapsch TrafficCom specialises in “Intelligent Transportation Systems” (ITS) and electronic toll collection systems. The company also offers innovative solutions for urban access management and for traffic safety and security. With references in over 40 countries in 5 continents, the firm is one of the world’s top suppliers in this sector.
