Technology for Intelligent Transportation Systems

Teledyne DALSA offers a wide range of area and line scan cameras ready to support imaging for advanced transportation systems. Compact, lightweight and versatile, with on-board processing, Gigabit Ethernet networking capability, and ruggedized for harsh environments, these cameras are ideal for traffic and transportation applications. Capabilities include:

  • high resolution, high speed cameras 
  • wide dynamic range
  • zoom & focus lens control
  • image compression
  • loop buffer to see "back in time"
  • on-demand image transfer
  • harsh environment tolerance
  • easy networking over long distances
Genie TS - ideal for transportation and traffic imagingGenie TS

Our Genie TS platform is particularly suited to ITS. It has been engineered to meet the critical performance and environmental requirements of traffic and transportation applications. Genie TS captures up to 12 megapixel images with extremely high quality resolution and remarkable dynamic range to ensure optimized images from sun to shade.

Integrated features like motorized lens control with image-to-image aperture, zoom and focus functionality, auto iris, image compression, loop buffer, image transfer-on-demand, and both RS-485 and RS-232 ports, are all built into a tough compact body equipped with a GigE Vision Compliant, direct to PC  interface making high speed data transfer and multi-camera networks easy to deploy.

The Genie TS's remarkable feature set allows to serve multilple functions simultaneously, reducing system deployment costs and complexity. For example, with its high speed, high resolution, and ability to multi-cast its data to multiple PCs for simultaneously data analysis, one Genie TS can serve traffic flow control and license plate recognition at the same time.

Piranha4 - line scan cameras for transportation and rail inspectionPiranha4

High Performance Color, Advanced Features, and Programmability

The Piranha4 cameras offer advanced features such as sub-pixel spatial correction, areas of interest (up to 4 at a time) to reduce data processing and simplify cabling, as well as dual-line area mode to double line rate, HDR mode, shading and lens correction. The Piranha4 is built for the real world with features to ease system integration. The advanced GenICam compliant user interface makes it easy to set up and control camera parameters such as exposure control, FFC, white balance, gain, test patterns, diagnostics and more.

Beyond the cameras, Teledyne DALSA's extensive range of framegrabbers and vision processors harness torrents of data from almost any manufacturer's cameras. Teledyne DALSA's X64 Xcelera framegrabbers deliver leading-edge performance, and its Anaconda vision processor offers real-time image processing to accelerate inspection system decisions.
