Wanco’s Traffic PVS System features cameras and sensing devices chosen specifically for transportation departments.

This is a deceptively simple device with a wide array of applications. It lets DOT watch centers monitor traffic, road and weather conditions in real time. Traffic engineers can perform intersection studies for vehicle, lane and turning counts. ITS and signal engineers can tie into smart work zone systems for managing road construction projects. Municipal DOTs can monitor traffic in heavy-volume areas at peak periods. Because the Traffic PVS is portable, it can also augment applications where construction might require permanent cameras to be taken offline.

The system deploys quickly and easily, and almost anyone can use it without training. Remote-video access is achieved via any Internet-connected device. With additional batteries and solar, the Traffic PVS can be fully autonomous for long run times in most U.S. regions.
