NEC deploys AI-based traffic monitoring system with fiber-optic sensing tech

NEC Corp has deployed an AI-based traffic monitoring system to Central Nippon Expressway Company Limited. The system uses fiber-optic sensing and AI technologies to visualize traffic conditions, such as the location, speed, and direction of travel, from vibrations produced by vehicle movement. The system includes sensing devices attached to one end of an optical fiber and an analytical AI engine, developed in-house by NEC, which makes it possible to continuously monitor traffic flow by utilizing existing optical fiber infrastructure for communications laid along highways. Nexco is the first expressway operator in Japan to continuously monitor traffic conditions using these kinds of technologies.
