Traffic Bureau Establishes New Monitoring and Warning System to Improve Intersection Safety

圖卡(1100517修)
【Kaohsiung News】 To improve intersection safety, the Transportation Bureau has initiated the trial plan of Risky Road User Behavior Monitoring and Voice Warning System. After two months of observation, it is noted that the average number of traffic offenses at all intersections shows a decline, and the overall number of offense cases has decreased by about 37% compared with the number before the system went online. It is expected that the number of traffic accidents at accident-prone intersections will be reduced further with the help of technologies.

Accompanied by staff from the Transportation Bureau, Information Management Center, Traffic Police Corps, and Linyuan Precinct, Deputy Mayor Charles Lin inspected on 19 this month the establishment and operation of the system at the intersection of City Highway 188 and Huajhong Rd. at Dafa Interchange of Express Highway 88.

According to Deputy Lin, "red-light running" and "wrong-way scooter driving encroaching upon crosswalks" are offenses that can lead to traffic accidents. These behaviors happen as a result of conformity behaviors, so warning and reminding road users will help reduce the occurrence of traffic offenses.

This plan summarizes the characteristics of traffic offense patterns at accident-prone intersections based on field observation and accident statistics and decides the installation location and detection direction of equipment accordingly. The system identifies whether road users commit offenses based on vehicle trajectory detection and AI analysis. When identifying any offenses, it then warns offending vehicles and reminds other vehicles to abide by regulations.

The Transportation Bureau said that it has established the systems at City Highway 188/Fonglin 2nd Rd. intersection in Daliao District, City Highway 188/Huajhong Rd. intersection, Jhongshan E. Rd./Boai Rd. intersection in Fengshan District, and Jhongshan E. Rd./Guangyuan Rd. intersection. The systems at the first three intersections detect and warn red light running committed by cars and scooters. The system at Jhongshan E. Rd./Guangyuan Rd. intersection detects and warns wrong-way scooter driving encroaching upon crosswalks based on the traffic offense pattern.

The Transportation Bureau compared statistics before and after the system went online and found that the number of red-light running cases has decreased by 37%. To effectively prevent offensive behaviors, the Transportation Bureau will continue to improve and refine the system in the hope of reducing traffic accidents and ensuring road user safety.
