The Autoscope system converts video images of a traffic scene into digitized traffic data that may be transmitted to local or remote locations for real-time traffic management or stored for later analysis. The Autoscope system is modular, flexible and expandable and has a variety of applications in intersection control, freeway traffic management and traffic data collection. The system can be used by traffic managers for traffic control, management, planning, research and other applications and ultimately can help reduce traffic congestion, improve roadway planning and increase cost efficiencies in traffic management and control.
The Autoscope System
Automated vehicle detection for traffic management traditionally has been performed with inductive wire loops buried in the pavement. However, embedded loop detectors are difficult to install and maintain, are destructive to road surfaces, and are not capable of wide-area vehicle detection without the use of many loops. The Autoscope system is easier to install and maintain than embedded loop detectors, is non-destructive to road surfaces, and is capable of wide-area vehicle detection with a single camera, thus enabling one camera to do the work of many loops. We believe that the Autoscope system's range of applications and its ability to support new applications for advanced technology solutions to traffic management problems make it superior to loop detectors and most other commercially available vehicle detection systems.
The Autoscope system permits users to draw detection zones on a video screen displaying the traffic scene and to derive traffic data from the portion of the image specified by the detection zones displayed on the screen. The system analyzes virtual detection zones that appear only on the video screen, not on the roadway. Each detection zone represents an area in the field of view of the camera that the system user wishes to analyze for determining the presence of vehicles or extracting other pertinent traffic data. More than 50 detection zones can be programmed per camera. The system user determines the detection zones by drawing them on a video monitor with a mouse. Different types of detection zones can be selected and may be placed anywhere in any orientation within the field of view of the cameras using the system's unique interactive graphics. The detection zones can be changed easily by using the mouse to resize, reshape or relocate the detection zones on the video monitor.

We will develop two radar systems for intrusion detection the first, called more properly GUIDAR is based on ranging leaky coaxial cable sensors and creates a volumetric protection zone; the second is a high performances free-space RADAR and creates a virtual barrier. Both systems are designed to detect moving targets.
The GUIDAR exploits the features of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) radar signal transmitted along a leaky coaxial cable and whose reflections, given by targets approaching the cable, are received by another leaky coaxial cable and then processed, detected, and classified by means of a complete and innovative Digital Signal Processing (DSP) system.
The leaky coaxial double cable can be installed, buried or not, along a generic path and protect a cylindrical volume around the double cable with a diameter of about 2 m along its entire length. Each digital processing system, able to detect the position and size of any target, can manage up to hundreds of meters of cable. More digital processing systems can be networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central managing system. This technology is generally classified as active, volumetric, terrain following, all-weather, and immune to vegetation and blowing debris.
We also developed a mono-static UWB electronic scanning radar (ESR) using a new antenna design and an advanced DSP system realizing a protection barrier. The processing unit is developed implementing a signal processing scheme able to precisely recognize the intruder radar cross section and position up to hundreds of meters distance from the antenna. More processing units can be networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central managing system. This technology is classified as active, volumetric, all-weather, ideal for low profile targets, and immune to vegetation and blowing debris.
We will develop innovative cable geometry and innovative antennas that dramatically improve the performances of our systems in terms of ranging with respect to the existing products. Moreover we will adopt innovative UWB radar analysis software based on DSP architecture that permits us to reach very high detection capabilities and performances and to be highly resilient to the environment changes (nuisance).
These systems are ideal to protect military and operation plants, airports, borders, oil pipes, etc.
2 – EMSEC (protection and eavesdropping)
Electronic equipment can emit unintentional signals from which eavesdroppers may reconstruct processed data at some distance.
We will develop a single pc/laptop active protection system based on the emission of correlated signals (innovative concept) that is intrinsically totally secure. Emitting a composite correlated protection signal the received spectrum is a non discernible mix of the signal to be protected and the protecting signal. This apparatus is low power, narrow band, impossible to violate and easy to be installed.
We will develop a high performances (large distance and through the wall) eavesdropping system on video display unit based on state-of-the-art digital signal processing. The system is an all-digital system implementing a fast AD conversion and digital front-end. Channel equalization, automatic choice of spectral harmonic, automatic extraction of vertical and horizontal synchronizations, and digital image enhancement permit to reach unprecedented performances in terms of readability.
A completely and totally new concept is applied to the protection system and a totally digital system will be developed for eavesdropping permitting to reach unprecedented performances.
The protection system can be applied in military installations, in governmental buildings, during tactical operations, etc.
3 – Real time positioning system
Organizations need a system able to locate objects or people. A real time positioning system consists of a fixed infrastructure of base stations and associated hardware and software to enable accurate real-time tracking of small battery powered (active) tags, which can be attached to people or objects, within the area covered by the base stations infrastructure. Compared to Global Positioning Systems (GPS), this system provides greater accuracy (typically to a resolution of a few centimetres) and the ability to work in situations where GPS does not (such as inside buildings) and with very small devices (active tags) with very small batteries.
The sensors in each base station are very sensitive detectors for the low power pulses emitted by the tags and can distinguish between reflections and directly received signals. Each sensor independently determines the azimuth and elevation directions of arrival of the incoming signals using special antenna array and signal analysis. Sensors do not need to have optical line of sight contact with the tags since the signals go through walls and other objects. An infrastructure of base stations can be installed and networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central management system.
New sensor antennas will be developed with improved performances. Innovative signal processing techniques will improve range and precision. The main advantages of such technologies are high precision, very good performance even in presence of obstacles or limited visibility, capability to work both outdoor and indoor, capability to work also with important metal obstacles using a suitable topology for the base stations, very high noise immunity, etc.
The system can be applied wherever is necessary to track in real time the position of people or objects, i.e. to associate the data from a bar code scanner with its position in a warehouse, to provide the position of a pallet of goods placed in a warehouse or a container in a storage area or airport, to automatically detect the proximity between objects, to determine if during an emergency procedure employees have all reached designated areas, etc.
4 – Image processing codecs
This system is constituted of an off-the-shelf electronic board based on digital signal processors running state-of-the-art image processing software algorithms (embedded system). It gets an input from any video camera (or radar, or eavesdropping system) and gives alarm and other outputs. It will perform the following content video analyses motion detection, abandoned/removed object/vehicle detection, perimeter crossing detection, panic situation detection, people/vehicle counting and speed evaluation, PTZ camera tracking, plate recognition, behaviour analysis, face recognition.
We are confident to reach incredible performances in terms of image resolution (> 1 mega-pixel) and video rate (> 25 frames per second).
The system is ideal to protect military and operation plants, airports, borders, vip houses, highways, cities, etc.
