Let us help your city
According to the World Health Organisation, over four million people die every year from the effect of low air quality, with 75% of pollutants believed to be caused by vehicle emissions.
In the UK, air pollution is one of the most significant environmental risks to human health. Our innovative and highly secure solutions for improving air quality are modular and future-proof and are helping cities around the world to address a range of air quality issues. Let us help you meet your air quality targets by exploring and implementing our intelligent solutions.
Clean Air Zones
There are several initiatives already in place to help tackle many of the sources of air pollution - for example, London's Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). A further five councils across the UK are also set to introduce Clean Air Zones (CAZs) having been identified by a DEFRA study to identify cities in the UK which were likely to miss EU air quality targets by 2020. Such schemes are highly effective in targeted locations to incentivize and/or regulate driver behaviour. Clean Air Zones are part of a broader strategy to improve the air we breathe but also improves the way we move around our cities.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
London’s ULEZ in detail
Yunex Traffic provided the TfL ULEZ enforcement system in London on a Design, Build, Operate and Maintain basis, covering both the roadside equipment and central IT instation. A central IT instation service management centre is operated on a 24/7, 365 days a year basis by a dedicated Yunex Traffic team with our maintenance engineers providing local 1st and 2nd line support. 3rd line support is provided by technical experts at Siemens Mobility in Poole, UK.
The system is integrated with the roadside sensors and ANPR cameras which form part of TfL's existing Congestion Charging scheme. ANPR cameras identify and register every vehicle that enters the ULEZ - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This information is then transmitted to a dedicated and secure Yunex Traffic data centre, where our ULEZ instation software determines the compliance of the vehicle.
The system can process an immense volume of data, which has to be processed and stored in such a way it can be used as a basis for notifications of charges and penalties. The information the system processes must constitute a strong basis of evidence. Vehicle data from the ANPR camera network is also used by TfL for scheme analysis and reporting, and to assist with their traffic management operations.
Low Emission Zone
Society's growing and justifiable concerns about noise and pollution from high-emission vehicles and traffic congestion need to be addressed as a matter of urgency. Low Emission Zone from Yunex Traffic is one of the key solutions.
