CHALLENGE

Data collection for urban traffic management

Constantly searching for innovative, cost-effective and easy-to-implement technological solutions, the City of Poitiers find in the HIKOB INSTANT system a real-time wireless vehicle detection solution that is easier to install, integrate and maintain compared to traditional solutions (loops, cameras, radar …) and for a lower total cost of acquisition. 

To manage the traffic at the junction between 2 communes street and Winston Churchill Avenue, the city of Poitiers chose to rely on the HIKOB system for the robustness of its radio protocol and the speed of data collection. 

Capitalizing on the installed wireless infrastructure, the ability to simply extend the HIKOB system to datacollection for road traffic monitoring for road weather or meteorological information via the deployed infrastructure also weighed positively in the balance.
