India Chemical Plant Slows Cars with Evolution Signs and Guardian Cameras
An Indian plant of one of the largest chemical producers in the world installs Evolution radar signs and Guardian speed cameras from Traffic Logix to improve safety on campus roads.
One of the largest diversified chemical companies in the world has several plants located right in India. The multi-billion-dollar company manufactures their sought-after products across the globe including in America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. They produce a variety of innovative materials and products including chemicals, plastics, and metals.
At the Indian chemical plant, employees heading in and out of work were frequently overspeeding. In addition, other vehicles entering the plant were often not respecting posted speed limits. The unique conditions of the busy production plant with heavy machinery, large vehicles, and harsh chemicals made overspeeding particularly dangerous.
The campus roads are wide and there are no manned areas. Despite posted speed limits of 20 kmph, many vehicles were travelling far faster. The goal was to create awareness so that drivers were alerted to their speeds in contrast to posted speed limits. In addition, they wanted to identify repeat offenders and penalize them to prevent further infractions.
The world renowned chemical production company chose Traffic Logix solutions to protect their roads at the Indian plant. They installed two 11” Evolution speed display signs along with Guardian speed cameras to capture images of overspeeders on their campus.
The interactive Evolution radar signs show drivers their speeds in bright LED digits. The interactive signs are displayed along with speed limit signs so drivers can see how much faster they’re going than they should be. The lightweight, compact design of the Evolution 11 signs makes installation a breeze and lets the signs be installed and relocated at multiple locations. They come with a variety of power options including energy efficient solar power. The Evolution signs gather detailed traffic data that can be viewed, downloaded, and gathered into reports via the SafePace Cloud.
The Guardian speed cameras capture images of the license plates of overspeeders. They share up to the minute data and reports that can be accessed right on the web via SafePace Cloud. The cameras can be programmed to send custom warnings to overspeeding drivers as well as fines to penalize them for repeat offenses. They are a powerful tool to prevent overspeeding and improve road safety.
Since the radar signs and cameras have been installed at the Indian chemical plant, managers have noticed a marked difference in the way people drive. They noted how seldom overspeeding is becoming and how accurate the speed signs are in capturing vehicle speeds. They also noted how pleased they are with how heavy-duty and durable the equipment is, an important feature in the harsh conditions typical of a chemical plant.
Plant staff has regularly been checking the cloud software to monitor speed violations. Since the signs and cameras have been installed, drivers have become more aware of their speeds and overspeeding has become much more seldom. Employees have begun respecting posted speed limits and the roads at the plant are becoming safer for everyone who uses them.
Managers at the plant have expressed enthusiasm at the drastic change they’ve been seeing in the way people drive on the plant’s campus. The Traffic Logix technology is giving them the accuracy and reliability they needed to protect campus roads and it’s changing the face of safety at the chemical plant.
