A PATTERN OF ISLANDS : DUTCH-DEVELOPED SPEED ENFORCEMENT TECHNOLOGY IS AIDING TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT IN STOCKHOLM

Stockholm, spread over 14 main islands, needed a solution for its chronic traffic congestion that could be implemented immediately. The Stockholm City Council decided to improve its traffic management capabilities with a new system, based upon an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. The system employs some 150 infrared cameras around the city, which monitor 50 selected routes within Stockholm, and the data is compiled every 15 minutes using a GPRS wireless network. The city hopes that drivers will respond to the system by planning their travel based upon the conditions reported, and that someday the system will be used to broadcast warnings and advisories based upon traffic conditions.
