February 2010 6 months ago, on June 26 2009, the A86 tunnel was officially opened on a 4.5 km section between Rueil-Malmaison and Vaucresson-A13 completing a portion of Paris’ 2nd ring road. Since then road users have widely adopted the tunnel and were able to test in real life the state of the art safety and security systems across the tunnel, including Citilog’s.

Engineered by Cofiroute the tunnel was nicknamed « Duplex » because of its double deck: the lower deck in the Rueil - Vaucresson direction and the upper deck for the Vaucresson – Rueil direction. The tunnel allows to travel in 10 minutes a journey that previously required 45 minutes. By reducing the surface traffic by 15%, the Duplex has a very significant contribution to the reduction of green house gases emission.

For safety reasons, the trucks will travel in a separate tunnel. The Duplex concentrates the latest innovations in terms of security and traffic safety and nothing is left to chance in this state of the art piece of infrastructure.

According to M. Bernard Lacrampe, the safety Guru at Cofiroute, “the Duplex was a very ambitious project and we chose to work with Citilog who gave us all the warranties in terms of raising the safety to where we wanted. We have never been disappointed and wish to pursue collaboration with Citilog on a safe extension of the A86.”

Once the project will be complete, 800 video input –fully redunded- will be analyzed by Citilog’s MediaTunnel software which was nicknamed DIVA by Cofiroute for Détection Immédiate des Véhicules arrêtés (Instantaneous Detection of Stopped vehicles). Every piece of equipment in the Incident Detection chain going from the camera to the Operators’ workstations is redunded in order to ensure the desired security level and reach 99.9% detection rate. This detection rate is also possible because everything in the tunnel was designed to reach these performances: from pavement to cameras and lighting.

An impressive Traffic Management Center was erected in Rueil to collect all data from the numerous control and safety subsystems inside the tunnel, particularly video cameras and the Citilog Automatic Incident Detection system. On the video wall a tunnel schematics shows the traffic in real time as well as incidents and anomalies. The faintest alarm is looked at and operators can remotely activate security systems as well as launch emergency vehicles based at both ends of the tunnel. The second section -5.5 km long- is under construction to link the A13 motorway in Vaucresson to Jouy-en-Josas near Versailles and should be opened in the fall of 2010.

Through this project Citilog is extremely proud to constantly raise the expectations of its customers and bring its contribution to enhancing security and safety for road users as well as increasing mobility and reducing congestion worldwide.
16 March 2009, Bala Cynwyd, PA Citilog, a leading provider of intelligent real time video monitoring and surveillance solutions for traffic, transportation, security and safety management throughout the world, today announced its Automatic Incident Detection (AID) software version 6. The new software features key performance gains for traffic and security related incident detection and monitoring of bridges, tunnels, roadways, highways and intersections. Improvements include a reduction in false alarms - particularly reducing the interference of shadows on monitoring and detection capabilities.

The upgrade enables Citilog’s VisioPaD™ solution to realize improvements in identifying appropriate object sizes and better trajectory tracking of vehicles. MediaRoad™ and MediaTunnel™ products from Citilog will realize a reduction in false alarms to improve traffic operations center incident responses and performance. Accuracy in detecting slow moving and wrong-way travelling vehicles is also improved for MediaRoad and MediaTunnel. Overall video quality is greatly enhanced to improve efficiency in responding to incidents and accidents as well as the traffic operator’s overall experience. Video clips, live streams and permanent recordings are available in H.264 encoding format, from 1fps to 25-30fps, either in PAL or NTSC.

“Citilog’s AID software version 6 offers compelling performance enhancements that significantly improve traffic and operations management center performance,” commented Christian Girardeau, CEO of Citilog. “The updated software touches each of Citilog’s solutions for traffic and security incident detection and monitoring solutions, improving upon many of the capability enhancements requested by our customers. With more than 400 worldwide deployments, we’re glad to offer version 6 to our customers to help them improve their capability to better manage traffic, secure their resources and provide overall improved safety, security and mobility across their infrastructure.”

There are other significant improvements offered in version six. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) is totally revamped to facilitate operations and maintenance of the Citilog system. The new supervision GUI takes into account a lot of feedback gathered from Citilog partners over the years. It features a full database-oriented GUI, user and role definition and management. Maintenance tools, such as a tool to visualize traffic measures, backups or log-file management allow having a throughout understanding of the state of the system, ensuring performances remain constant during the lifespan of the system. The backend database has also been optimized for better performance for more rapid responses to user inputs and updates. It now also allows synchronizations for improved video clip management. . By adding to the list of supported IP cameras and coders, integration has also been strengthened. Version 6 is able to take advantage of dual-stream hardware.

Citilog’s AID software version 6 is available now worldwide. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Citilog for details or a Citilog value added reseller (VAR) near them.
