Protecting citizens from rising crime rates

With crime levels rising by 70% in the last three years within León city in Mexico, Optibus who operates the cities only Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system needed an optimal solution for keeping their 350,000 daily ridership safe when using their transport network. Through deploying an Infinet Wireless solution they have been able to overhaul their network and transmit CCTV images in real-time from their 53 bus stops across the city via an increased network speed of 8Mbps per subscriber point. The new system has also allowed them to bring their overall monitoring system completely online, increasing efficiencies and safety.

The system sensors can distinguish between vehicles and cyclists

Innovative pilot project keeps cyclists safe

Global Traffic Technologies, LLC (GTT) is helping to make journeys for cyclists in Minneapolis safer, smoother, and faster by using existing infrastructure and GTT's Canoga 9004 system to detect and react to bikes at intersections. Now the traffic detection system is able to recognise both vehicle and bicycles, and the Canoga card reacts quickly enough to give cyclists a green light without needing to slow down or wait at the intersection; or worse yet, navigate a red light.
