This system utilises edge computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology at a signalised intersection. Easy-to-install and cost effective, The system only comprises a camera with image processor, a Road Side Unit (RSU) and an On-Board Unit (OBU) for detecting the on-coming vehicles’ locations, speeds, vehicle types and estimating the travelling time and required stop time at the same time. If the system predicts that a vehicle cannot stop securely in front of the stop line when traffic light is about to turn red, warning will be delivered.
Existing Red-Light Camera technology is capable for facilitating prosecution after a red-light violation event happened, but unable to help predict and prevent accident, or reduce the damage to human life and properties from a potential red-light violation event.
Automotive Platforms and Application Systems (APAS) R&D Centre was established in 2006 by the Innovation and Technology Commission of HKSAR Government and hosted by the Hong Kong Productivity Council. The Centre undertakes R&D programmes as well as commercialising R&D results in collaboration with industry, universities and technology institutes for the development of the APAS technology. Since its establishment, APAS R&D Centre has carried out over 100 R&D projects and focus on 3 R&D areas, Green Transportation, Smart Mobility and Intelligent Systems. To facilitate greater synergy and further enhance cost effectiveness, APAS is form part of the Hong Kong Productivity Council with effect from 1 Nov 2012.
