The Vehicle Counting and Classification System integrated in the Control and Surveillance System has the objective of permanent monitoring (counting, classification, registration and archiving) of the traffic.
The Traffic Classification and Counting System, including its Automated Classifiers Vehicle (CAVs) - physically installed in the roads, for a total of 14 stations - communicates with the Control Center through the private fiber optic network, with possibility of permanent and on-line verification of the reliability of their registrations.
The permanent verification is guaranteed through the provision of an on-line data circuit.
The location of the counting stations, their identification and respective areas of influence are listed in the figure below.
