The technological company INVAR Engineering and Computer Vision, together with Euskontrol, a benchmark in quality control, auscultation and instrumentation, and the company DronebyDrone specialized in aeronautical consulting and advice with drones, unify their strategies and capabilities to offer a global and comprehensive solution in infrastructure management, combining traditional techniques and methodologies with new technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision systems.
The mobility of our society is part of people daily activity. Every day through different modes of private or public transport, we move from our places of residence and rest to work and leisure centers, using the existing infrastructure and transport networks, which structure the territory as a great circulatory system. However, growing and progressive increase in population and, as a consequence, mobility, implies a greater number of trips, approaching the admissible capacity of infrastructures at certain times of the day and, at times, also affecting optimal conditions of security.
Over the last few years, extensive experience has been acquired in this field, with carrying out of various mobility, traffic and road safety studies to different state, regional and local organizations. In addition, it is necessary to highlight a business strategy that is firmly committed to technological innovation with the introduction into the market of new developments, products and services.
Led by an experienced human and professional team, with the required official accreditations and permits, it makes the three companies – DronebyDrone, Euskontrol and INVAR – capable of offering their clients a global and comprehensive solution in infrastructures management.
The use of unmanned systems such as drones, capable of recording images from the air, in combination with computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that process the registered information, allow the analysis of vehicle traffic and people who transit through roads, streets and public spaces.
An example of this synergy is Drone Saat system, which, by recording aerial high-resolution images with drones, and processing images with computer vision and artificial intelligence, allows monitoring of traffic, analyzing the intensity and level of service at each access, delays and times in making each movement, as well as the origin and destination matrices associated with trips made by vehicles.
The system stands out for its portability, adapting to any environment or infrastructure situation, it does not need any type of installation, it is not intrusive or invasive, and it respects the privacy and security of people.
As part of a global solution for the client, the information recorded by Drone Saat forms the basis of a traffic study that can be complemented with microsimulation models that analyze both the current situation and future scenarios, for example, considering the growth of traffic. or changes in road network.
On the other hand, safety management with officially accredited personnel according to Order FOM/943/2019, affects the entire life cycle of infrastructure with development of road safety audits, preliminary and project phases, previous (PPS) and initial in service (IS), or inspections in the operational phase with the review of status and situation of different elements (signaling, beaconing, geometry, visibility, drainage, …).
Applications and possibilities are multiple and varied, not only to roads. Among others, it is important to carry out studies of traffic and pedestrian mobility, analyzing the behavior of the population, areas with highest density and concentration of people, periods of maximum influx, …
