Innovation shortlist

The Wisenet Automatic Incident Detection (AID) software, developed by Hanwha Techwin and analytics firm Sprinx Technologies, has been shortlisted for an Intertraffic Amsterdam Innovation Award.

Wisenet AID is one of three products on the shortlist for the Traffic Management category, announced by an international jury. The winner will be announced at the opening ceremony of the Intertraffic Amsterdam 2018 exhibition, from March 20 to 23, at RAI Amsterdam.

Paola Clerici, General Manager and Commercial and Marketing Director of Sprinx Technologies s.r.l, said: “We are proud that together with Hanwha Techwin we have developed a solution which has been recognised as being innovative by the World’s leading traffic Industry event. This is further confirmation of the power of the combination of our mutual technologies and expertise. We have trust in our partnership with Hanwha Techwin, which is why we have decided to work only with their video surveillance products and are making every effort to promote our joint solution in the traffic management market.”

The Wisenet AID uses the processing power of the chipset in Wisenet X cameras. This allows all application functions to simultaneously operate on the edge. Wisenet X cameras also come with a half-inch Full HD image sensor which offers Hanwha Techwin technology partners, such as Sprinx, the freedom to develop features as benefits to end-users. 3D object recognition, unique to Wisenet AID, significantly negates the risk of false alarms compared to conventional 2D technology used in other cameras, the makers say.

Wisenet Automatic Incident Detection (AID) is described by Hanwha as a city wide incident detection solution. Hanwha Techwin engineers have worked with Sprinx to meet the expectations of traffic managers who are tasked with resolving the challenge of vehicles causing congestion in city centres and on highways.

Traffic AID lets operators know when traffic is slowing, and whether there is a lengthening queue. It will also detect broken down or illegally stopped vehicles and if there is a wrong way driver, a pedestrian in danger or there is smoke in a tunnel. It will even spot if cargo has fallen off a lorry.

Traffic AID uses intelligent image processing to alert operators about traffic related events while enabling statistical data such as vehicle classification, counting and flow to be recorded. Traffic AID’s intuitive web user interface enables operators to specify detection zones and parameters and to analyse statistical data via graphics and charts. An event journal provides a log of all events and snapshots of incidents.


For city surveillance managers who do not require the complete Traffic AID package, module options are available for them to keep traffic and pedestrians on the move. These include: Pedestrian and Stop Detection (PSD), Traffic Flow and Traffic Data, whilst the Traffic Hub server based application collects and aggregates data from multiple network connected Wisenet cameras and through its interface offers an overview of traffic incidents.
