Teledyne has eyes on Çanakkale Bridge

Teledyne Flir has just lately put in its weather-proof twin thermal AID digital camera know-how to be used on the brand new 1915 Çanakkale Bridge in Turkey.

The bridge crosses the Çanakkale Strait that connects the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea in western Turkey. It was constructed in a three way partnership between DL E&C (previously Daelim), Limak, SK Ecoplant and Yapı Merkezi. 

Teledyne Flir’s incident detection cameras now cowl your complete size of the six-lane 4.6km bridge, the longest mid-span suspension bridge on the planet and a part of the Malkara-Çanakkale Motorway.

The bridge’s operators must see clearly in all climate circumstances, from fog to heavy rain. Another problem is solar glare which might distort photos generated by a visible camera-based computerized incident detection system. Thermal cameras don’t have any points with fog, unhealthy climate or solar glare since they detect visitors primarily based on warmth and never mild.

“Winters might be arduous in Çanakkale and Malkara, with snow, fog and heavy wind,” stated Emrah Ilteray, chairman of Elmak-YMIdis, the three way partnership chargeable for the ITS a part of the undertaking.

“The 1915 Çanakkale Bridge is a high-profile undertaking with worldwide impression. That is we didn’t compromise on the standard of our incident detection know-how. Flir’s Dual AID digital camera ticks all of the packing containers by way of detection efficiency and accuracy.”

Nearly 100 of Teledyne Flir’s ITS-632 Dual AID cameras are put in each 96m on all sides of the deck.

The digital camera combines thermal and visible imaging know-how with superior video analytics to reliably detect incidents—together with collisions, stopped autos, wrong-way drivers and pedestrians. It additionally detects fires inside seconds of ignition and supplies priceless visitors knowledge, together with variety of autos and automobile lessons.

In addition to the incident detection cameras, Teledyne Flir additionally delivered eight of its Flir Elara DX-Series multi-spectral pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) safety cameras. They supply management room operators further means to observe the bridge for incidents.

One of the strengths of Teledyne Flir’s twin collection AID cameras is that they’ve their video analytics embedded inside the digital camera. Since the digital camera takes care of all of the video analytics processing, the video stream doesn’t should be despatched over the community to a central processing server. This considerably reduces community visitors and ends in a lot decrease latency.

In case the community ought to go down, the digital camera nonetheless shops its incident occasions. Another advantage of such a distributed structure is that within the uncommon case an AID digital camera ought to go down, the remainder of the community and digital camera infrastructure should not affected.

Information from the 98 AID cameras and eight safety cameras is collected and managed by Flir’s Flux video detection administration system.

Control room operators use this software program to overview visitors knowledge, occasions, alarms and video photos generated by the assorted cameras. Flux supplies a user-friendly interface composed of a monitoring and a reporting utility and allows real-time monitoring of occasions and alarms.
