The article describes the range of Traficon video-based technologies for traffic analysis, more than 1000 of whose sensors are now used worldwide. Traficon has developed its systems in collaboration with Belgian research centres and universities, with the support of the Flemish Government. The large-scale integration of its detectors in centralised traffic control systems has led to an increasing number of successful installations in Belgium and other countries. Traficon technologies include: (1) Camera and Computer Aided Traffic Sensor (CCATS); (2) Camera and Computer Aided Incident Detection Sensor (CCIDS); (3) Video Image Compression (VIC); (4) Camera Vehicle Tracking Sensor (CTRACK); and (5) Video Image Processor Hardware. The main applications of Traficon sensors and systems are: (1) traffic detection on motorways; (2) traffic detection and turning movement analysis; and (3) traffic detection inside and around tunnels. Traficon products have been evaluated since 1987 by the European DRIVE I and DRIVE II programmes, and in various trials, mostly in Europe. For the covering abstract see IRRD 877920.
