Siemens Shows One-Stop Tunneling Solution
One of the more involved and complicated exhibits at this year’s Gulf Traffic is a model of a single source tunnel lighting, ventilation, energy and traffic management solution being displayed on Siemens’ stand. The system includes air quality monitoring with automatic fan control, automatically variable lighting for the portal area, monitoring and control of emergency exits, variable speed and measure signs, traffic lights and barrier control. In fact, everything needed to manage and control a road tunnel.
Additional inputs, such as a stopped vehicle, pedestrian in the roadway and wrong-way driver detection can be incorporated into their management system to provide a single and all-encompassing operator interface with pre-settable alerts. They system can be employed on any length of tunnel and is said to simplify installation.
