New Smart Sign Detection & Inventory feature automatically identifies, photographs and tags road signs, adding them directly to the jurisdictions digital sign inventory.
Ontario, Canada — Oct 12, 2020 — Today TES Information Technology announced immediate availability of their newest feature; Smart Sign Detection & Inventory.
Fully integrated with the TES Sign Inventory module, this innovative tool helps save time, money and reduces liability by creating an inventory of traffic signs using state of the art AI-based image processing and recognition. By simply driving through their road networks using affordable consumer grade dash cam video, TES clients can automatically identify, photograph and tag road signs, adding them directly to their sign inventory.
“This application has huge potential for road jurisdictions and has already been used on a number of projects and initiatives in Ottawa.” said Byron Hemlow, Section Manager at the City of Ottawa. “Just from a speed sign perspective, it has contributed to geo fencing for E-kick scooter suppliers, emergency services for routing, sign inventory for traffic calming measures and planning/modelling to name a few.”
“Digitalizing and managing sign inventory is a challenge for jurisdictions around the world” explains Greg Szrejber, President and Founder of TES. “By harnessing the power of AI based image recognition we knew we could solve a common problem for our clients in a very cost-effective way.”
