"Intertraffic Amsterdam is one of the key international venues where you can demonstrate smart solutions for urban space. Within the framework of the event we held over 50 meetings with representatives of public and private organizations from Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, China, Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia and other countries. Foreign partners examined the novelties of the Holding enterprises with great interest. They were especially interested in our SWIR-camera, operating in tandem with an unmanned aerial vehicle" (Alexey Patrikeyev, Shvabe Director General).
SWIR-camera, developed by the specialists of Orion Scientific and Production Association, operates in the near infra-red. It can see through the fog and smoke, detect obscured objects, including those hidden behind the tinted windows of the vehicle. In tandem with the quad-copter, the possibilities of Shvabe development substantially increase. It can be used in urban transport control, for the purpose of security and anti-terror.
Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant demonstrated an innovative pedestrian navigation complex with a tourist map showing street names, public transport stops, cultural and entertainment facilities. Besides, the device is equipped with an emergency button to contact with emergency services, a 24-hour audio and video recording system for public space monitoring, as well as Wi-Fi access point and USB for mobile device recharging. The first complexes by Shvabe enterprise were installed in Yekaterinburg in late 2017 near the Ekaterinburg-Arena stadium where the matches of World Cup -2018 will be held.
The Holding also presented the Intelligent Transport System for monitoring the cameras and traffic in the city. The software complex allows for real-time monitoring of all connected cameras and traffic lights in the city, as well as receiving video information from them and managing them. The system is able to independently control switching of traffic lights based on information on traffic flow received from the cameras. At present the program is being tested in Moscow. Visitors to Intertraffic Amsterdam 2018 could run an online check of cameras in the capital of Russia and even start a camera cleaning process with the wipers.
