Road Transport Solutions

Ground transport is crucial for our economy and our social way of life. Facing diverse challenges varying from shifts in demographic trends, demands for reduced pollution, and demands for increased flow of traffic call for advanced traffic management systems that provide road authorities and operators with the ability to manage, monitor and ensure the flow of movement, while providing travelers with real-time information for safety and convenience.

Our road transport impacts our mobility, our freight, our commerce, our logistics and our quality of life. By integrating traffic management with information solutions, traffic authorities, control centers, and road users are provided with adaptive flexible solutions that ensure the deployment of a solid traffic management system that allows for:

  • Improvement of roads and infrastructures capacity
  • Monitoring of entire road networks
  • Control of traffic devices
  • Strategic coordination of travel flow
  • Enhancement of traffic safety
  • Optimization of traffic routes
  • Reduction in travel time
  • Decrease in congestion
  • Reduction in vehicle emissions negatively impacting environment
  • Streamlining of energy efficiencies
  • Improvement of mobility
  • Reduction in incident and emergency response times
  • Enhancement of road maintenance

 

Our Road Transport Offerings

 

Traffic Management

Consists of the various systems and applications used by road operators to guide and manage the flow of traffic. Traffic management is utilized to optimize road use and traffic safety.

ITS is a vital part of traffic management, as it allows road operators to quickly manage traffic without the risk of human errors, in many cases on the basis of automatic traffic monitoring. Important systems and tools for traffic management include traffic models that determine management strategies, systems for traffic signaling, systems for traffic notifications (VMS), and systems for emergency and incident response.

Toll Management

Assists authorities in variable road pricing to accommodate large urban areas or congestion charging in cities (City Tolling); common toll systems for freeways, roads and bridges (Single Lane Tolling); barrier-free toll systems that are implemented on motorways or as nationwide systems (Open Road Tolling).

Based on the desired outcome and environment, our advanced solutions are tailored to support the various charging schemes to account for environment, time, and distance. Giza Systems works with its clients to meet their requirements in terms of increasing toll capacity, throughout, and revenue.

Tunnel Management

Provides operators with extensive systems and applications to manage and secure tunnels and bridges for optimum traffic management, safety, and security. Tunnel Management Solutions include Traffic Control and Management Systems (variable signalization and traffic detection/counting), Video Surveillance and Automatic Incident Detection Systems, Emergency Telephone System, Public Announcement System, Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems, Rebroadcasting Systems for radio and cellular services, Data Communication Network, Ventilation Systems, Air Quality Control Systems, Lighting Systems, Electric Power Supply, Power Distribution, and Back-Up Power Systems.

Parking Management & Control

Parking Management & Control solutions organize and manage parking areas involving subsystems for parking guidance, off-street parking, and on-Street parking, including access control, pay machines, barrier systems, etc.

City Surveillance System

Includes overview and video-surveillance camera with built-in intelligence, which provides detailed context images for car park and traffic applications, storage. Applications encompass car park and access control, traffic monitoring, law enforcement, border control, and toll booths, etc. The system has the capacity to show live images at the same time as recording, and can be easily integrated with other systems. All videos are digitally signed to prevent their possible manipulation.

Other Subsystems
  • Variable Message Systems (VMS) is an electronic traffic sign that provides motorists on highways with important information on routes, incidents, congestion, construction, speed limits, alternative routes, alerts, etc. VMS is essential for dynamic traffic management systems to assist in streamlining traffic flow and lessen road congestion by displaying real-time traffic information.
  • License Plate Recognition consists in automatic number plate recognition solutions used to control traffic on motorways, roads, streets, etc. It offers high reliability for traffic surveillance, toll collection, traffic enforcement, and traffic management. As only one unit is necessary per monitored lane, the solution reduces installation costs by eliminating complex cabling, and can be combined with lighting, camera, processors, inputs and outputs into one single unit.
  • Traffic Data Collection supports a wide range of applications in cities and motorways by employing traffic detectors such as video, inductive loop, radar, passive-infrared, etc. These solutions provide real-time traffic data and statistics, including speed, queue occupancy levels, traffic volume and density, average speed, and vehicle classification according to length.
  • Road Weather Stations these stations measure real-time atmospheric and visibility factors. RWIS data are used by road operators to support drivers.
  • Weight in Motion (WIM) is used as an enforcement system that consists in road sensors and a weighting system on roadways and highways for capturing information on various parameters of vehicles such as gross weight, axle loads, number of axles, as well as speed and vehicle classification.
  • Section Speed Control Systems (SCS) provide accurate speed enforcement measurements by establishing the average speed of vehicles across entire road sections. The average speed enforcement measurement tool is suitable for urban and interurban road networks. The innovative Section Control System (SCS) uses sensor technology to monitor vehicles across an entire road section to establish average speed and detect any speeding violations. SCS utilizes radar technology closely synchronized with ANPR cameras placed at the start and end of the monitored road segment. The advantage of SCS is that speed can be enforced over an entire segment of road, which is significantly more effective than spot speed measurements.
