  • XCU Dual Camera: Our XCU dual fiber camera, complete with thermal and optical capabilities, is a game-changer for tunnels. It detects fires, smoke, and more, keeping highways and tunnels safer.
  • Complete Awareness: Our VMS offers complete tunnel and highway monitoring, complete with maps, tolling station insights, and quick access to the information you need when you need it.
  • Integration Excellence: Our VMS seamlessly integrates with third-party systems, utilizing sensor data from loops, cameras, and radar to generate vital events and statistics. These empower you to make more informed decisions and implement safer, smarter transportation solutions.

Case Study

2nd Coentunnel, The Netherlands

Tunnel and infrastructure solutions

Reliable and accurate video surveillance is of utmost importance at critical infrastructure such as tunnels, bridges and highway crossings. With our client Rijkswaterstaat, we were able to implement VDG SENSE VMS in the 2nd Coentunnel which connects the main freeways of the northern part of The Netherlands with the country’s capital, Amsterdam.

Over 30,000 vehicles pass through the tunnel each day, and it required a video management system that was both powerful and had the possibility to interact with the many other safety systems implemented, such as fire & smoke detection, traffic flow control systems, intercom and variable message sign systems.

VMS offers powerful and intelligent features with a unique flexibility to integrate in any kind of security environment also offering critical features such as ‘failover’ which ensures that even if a system fails, video streams and recording can continue uninterrupted.

The VMS for Coentunnel is connected to the SCADA system through the OPC protocol. In case of alarms from other systems and sensors in the tunnel, events are sent to the VMS. It will then respond by controlling the relevant cameras and showing the corresponding video streams on the video wall and on operator screens.

One of the other unique features of the VMS is its ability to create custom layouts, allowing for flexible configurations on video walls, operator screens, and any other client or viewer’s screen.  The possibility to access video through mobile apps also provides huge advantages for the operators on the job.

Excellent video security is essential for tunnels, as without continuous and clear video footage, they can be required to shut down, with costly consequences. With VDG SENSE continuity is guaranteed.

Nationwide upgrade and extension of Asfinag’s video surveillance system, Austria

Austrian Highways Project

Today’s highways are complex networks that need to be monitored closely, not just for safety, but also to ensure optimal traffic flow.

Our cooperation with Asfinag (Austrian highway management company), meant that we were able to align their vision and anticipation of future growth with our solutions: a smart, user-friendly system that would embrace open standards while offering support for legacy protocols.

In collaboration with systems integrator Siemens, we designed an end-to-end surveillance system based on ONVIF-compliant hardware. Part of Asfinag’s 5,500 surveillance cameras were replaced, and new and existing analogue cameras were connected to a mix of SIQURA’S S-series video encoders which offer standardized H.264 video streaming and flexibility of wiring.

To make the most of AKUT, Asfinag’s acoustic tunnel monitoring system, TKH Security adapted its XCU cameras. The tunnel sound picked up by AKUT can now be digitized and transferred to the control room for further analysis.

The XCU camera continuously analyses the images it captures for unusual occurrences, such as stopped vehicles, pedestrians, lost cargo or smoke and as soon as an incident is detected, it automatically sends out an alert to a control room.

Enclosed Service Roads, Al Maryah Island

Al Maryah Island is in the vicinity of one of the largest tunnels in the region, the Shaikh Zayed Tunnel for which we had the distinction of offering our IP Encoders.

Today, our advanced traffic monitoring solution is implemented on enclosed service roads in Al Maryah Island that are dedicated to fire and life safety measures with respect to current Governmental Authorities requirements.

Leveraging our rugged XCU Compact Cameras, these are designed to operate in harsh environments, ensuring durability and clear surveillance through a full set of image enhancement tools on-board to improve the image for the actual application. Moreover, the XCU Compact is available with motorized lens and autofocus for rapid deployment and remote installation with Remote zoom and focus that allows you to define and configure the field-of-view afterwards, without opening the camera.

The adjustable white balance and hue can compensate for varying lighting conditions. Back-light compensation and wide dynamic range functions enhance image quality in difficult lighting situations, ensuring quality pictures even in challenging scenes.

With our solution we were able to equip the enclosed service road with reliable and efficient monitoring to meet safety regulations and enhance the overall urban living experience.

Traffic Management System, Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA), Riyadh – Saudi Arabia

The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) of Saudi-Arabia is responsible for the socio-economic, cultural, and environmental development of the city of Riyadh.

Our solution included the implementation of high-resolution speed dome cameras. Along with offering clear situational awareness of traffic at junctions, these outdoor high-speed PTZ dome cameras offer exceptional imaging controls, providing detailed surveillance footage in high definition (1080p). Paired with our advanced VDG SENSE VMS these cameras ensure seamless integration and superior performance.

Offering a significant upgrade from fixed-time systems, our traffic management system goes beyond automatically adjusting traffic signal timing in real-time based on current traffic conditions. This dynamic approach significantly improves traffic flow and reduces congestion, providing a remarkable upgrade from traditional methods.

To ensure data storage for essential monitoring and analysis, our hardware servers and hard discs were installed in control rooms. These have a large storage capacity, enabling us to conduct comprehensive analysis and review of the data whenever necessary.
