FLIR introduces new traffic management solution


The new FLIR Trafidata intelligent thermal traffic sensor solution for improved data collection capabilities offers transportation management key insights for smarter, safer cities. Trafidata promises to be a unique offering from FLIR in the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) market with the ability to perform as both a data collection device and classification unit with the advantage of thermal and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in a single, unified platform.

FLIR Trafidata combines thermal imaging with onboard AI to detect, track, classify, and communicate road traffic data over Wifi. The sensor differentiates and counts vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians, measures real-time travel, and provides origin and destination insights. This massive data set is collected over the Acyclica by FLIR platform, a smart city data management platform, which is seamlessly accessed through FLIR’s Cameleon ITS advanced transportation management software, or other compatible management software.

The ability to capture this high-resolution, real-time data enables city planners and transportation managers to manage emerging traffic conditions, reducing congestion and enhancing road safety.

“FLIR Trafidata offers traffic monitoring day or night, with the ability to classify road users in total darkness, and through smoke, glare, fog, and in other harsh weather conditions,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. “By combining a thermal camera with Acyclica’s real-time analytics into a single device, Trafidata helps transportation and city planners gain access to groundbreaking
