Infrastructure of road systems efficiency & management, control & monitoring system of security & emergency unit

A. Development of modular real time traffic surveillance & management solutions based on the situation awareness, cognitive recognition & monitoring technologies. B. Web system that includes a dedicated hardware-based, gis/gps command and control tool for emergency forces.

A. The aim of the project is to develop and/or modernize traffic management systems in order to improve the road safety & capacity in large cities at low capital investment cost by implementing and integrating the following innovative technologies & solutions: Development of: -situational view & intersection control systems based on the use of high resolution panoramic cameras with multi-spectral LED lighting for improved object recognition in any conditions and a real time video analysis embedded platform; -smart motion tracking, behavior recognition & incident detection technologies to detect, classify and alert critical events and risks on the roads. - an adaptive multi-dimensional simulation model of city transportation network consisting of local and transit traffic flows based on statistical route and traffic density knowledge bases. - a smart interconnectivity infrastructure connecting cluster dispatch centers with road police, emergency & ambulance services, rescuers and other government operative rapid response services. Such infrastructure could be supported by media gateway modular processor enabling intercommunications of Radio, Audio, Video over IP with content management utilizing GPGPU HPC engine (with partner B). Traffic & road safety surveillance and monitoring is conducted at local cluster dispatch and data centers. A 3D simulation model of a given city and its greater area is created as a single hierarchical transportation network where prevalent local and transit travel routes are grouped in adaptive clusters. There is a dispatch and data center for monitoring and managing each cluster. The model imports real time traffic data from the situational view & intersection management integrated system for each cluster. Traffic data includes road rules violations, calculation of the number of vehicles per intersection, calculation of right/left turning vehicles, vehicle classification, measurement of the red light vehicle line-up, traffic flow speed and red-light passing vehicles statistics, as well as accidents or abnormal events detection. The traffic operator at a cluster dispatch center will be only presented with data and/or video feeds which are relevant. The system will automatically alert the operator in case there is a congestion area, an accident or a security threat in any of the surveillance zones using a wide range of integrated object & behavior recognition algorithms. Relevant data can be visualized on one large hi-resolution 3D screen and can be managed naturally without the use of any periphery devices such as a keyboard or a mouse. In case of accidents, emergency situations and/or any security threats, the system will communicate all relevant data to relevant government operative rapid response services, which will be equipped with mobile media communication systems that provide remote video assistance & guidance from experts offsite and wireless access to expert knowledge bases for quicker and better decision-making. When there's need for medical assistance, the system will either allow the patients to have direct communication in real time with the their doctors or provide qualified first aid in case of accidents and casualties through remote support of a number of experts. Simulations made by Tradition Group show that an overall improvement of regional transportation network capacity of 15-25% could be achieved, translating into savings of at least 8-19 billions roubles per year for a region comparable to Moscow city and improvements in citizen safety and security as well as better environmental conditions due to decreased air pollution. B. EMCM –Management, Control, and Monitoring of Emergencies forces. Emergencies, whether a result of natural disasters such as earthquakes,or man-made factors, such as terror attacks, occurs periodically with no warning. Governments and local authorities must be prepared with the appropriate response for such emergencies, and this response usually requires cooperation between different organizations. To coordinate this response, a system is needed for the planning and management of the various involved organizations. Proposed Solution: Develop an EMCM system, a Web, GIS system that provides a unified and complete picture of the emergency and the forces and organizations involved. Components: 1.EMCM - a web system that includes a dedicated hardware-based, GIS/GPS command and control tool for the management of police, fire-fighting, and rescue (MDA) forces, as well as other relevant authorities and forces. Major beneficiaries: municipalities governments, utilities and water , port/airport authorities, armed forces, hospitals, etc. 2. SIE (Standard Interface for Emergency forces) - a uniform interface used by any rescue force or authorities that is involved. 3. SRAM (Security Risk Assessment and Management) - a risk management module for important information: gas leaks, radioactive.
