The awareAI system by Yunex Traffic recognizes road users after the training phase with the integrated deep learning algorithms and classifies them. For example, it detects whether the person is a child, a wheelchair user or a group of people. The system can also detect if the pedestrians want to cross the protective path or if they are just walking past the intersection. Larger groups or slower pedestrians are detected by virtual speed tracking, and the duration of green phases is adjusted as needed. This ensures higher safety and provides more comfort for citizens with special needs.
The connection of the new high-tech system is made via the central, traffic-related data network of the city of Linz. In a secured data network, traffic data including operating and status data are transmitted via wide-range modems (fiber optics and data lines) at up to 1 GB/s to optimize traffic processes.
All detection processes are carried out within the local evaluation unit and only completely anonymized information is optionally processed externally. This offers the highest level of data protection.
