Situational Awareness

Failing to respond quickly to an incident or stopped vehicle could lead to secondary incidents. Relying on a 999 call to locate the incident is time-consuming and could be inaccurate, resulting in further problems.

ClearWays situational awareness feature can be added to tunnel and bridge applications, providing operators with a visual map of the road. An unlimited number of vehicles and pedestrians can be tracked, meaning the incident can be better understood by the operators. Emergency services can use the information to accurately locate each vehicle or person, for a smooth and fast response. This will ultimately decrease the chance of further incidents, and minimise disruption times.

Situational Awareness

  •  Live video stream
  • Exact location of vehicles and pedestrians
  • Exact number of vehicles and pedestrians
  • Exact location of emergency service vehicles

Detection
Conditions

  • All levels of light, from darkness to sun glare
  • Fog, snow and rain
  • Fire, smoke and hot gasses
  • Water and spray

How Does Situational Awareness Work?

Normal operation

The road is continually monitored and the control room is made aware of incidents in as little as 10 seconds.


During an incident

Real-time visibility and location of debris, vehicles and people are passed to the control room to coordinate emergency response.

Post event analysis 

A screen recording of the events can be evaluated following the event, for training and forensic purposes.


How does Situational Awareness make roads safer?

  • Fast detection rate

ClearWay detects an incident within 10 seconds, meaning response times are much quicker.

  • Exact location of incident 

ClearWay situational awareness shows the exact radar and stretch of road where the incident has occured. This is much more efficient than attempting to locate an incident via an emergency call.

  • Accurate information for emergency services

Emergency services are provided with the exact location, and also the exact number of vehicles and pedestrians involved.  The emergency service vehicle will also be tracked, so the operator will be well informed about the status of the situation.

  • Visual map for operators 

Operators can see the road on a visual map. This allows them to make informed decisions when there are changes on the road.

  • Screen recording for post-event analysis

A screen recording can be stored for up to seven days, meaning incidents can be analysed for forensic purposes. This can help with future incident prevention.
