NI company develops system to prevent dangerous driving at roadworks sites

A Northern Ireland security technology company has created a new traffic management system to stop dangerous driving at roadworks sites, protecting the lives of construction workers.

Envision Intelligent Solutions developed Roadscan, a completely wireless stand-alone unit that records traffic breaches, capturing the driver’s number plate in real time providing information that is compliant and can be used as evidence.

The new system can also act as a deterrent as drivers see the cameras recording traffic offences and may reconsider running a red light.

The small unit, designed to be easy to deploy, provides site managers with real-time access so they have an overview of operations and safety compliance at all times. Footage is securely encrypted then stored to the cloud for playback and is compliant as evidence for any traffic violations or abuse of construction staff by drivers.

The unit has undergone on-site testing at road sites in the Republic of Ireland and is now being considered for use by Greentown Traffic Management. Greentown, which has offices in Fermanagh, Lisburn and Dundalk, plans to offer Roadscan as an option to their public and private sector clients.

Envision, set up in 2011 as a netcentric technology interfaced security company specialising in construction and manufacturing industries, was recently acquired by US firm Johnson Controls, a global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings.
