Tunnel equipment and -operation


The Institute Highway Engeneering is concerned with this area of research with questions about the safe and economical operation of road tunnels.


Research topics in this area include the ventilation in regular operation and in the event of a fire, safety assessment and event management using operational and safety engineering facilities. For this purpose, the institute has developed a self-developed video decoding software (isacVITO) for automatic traffic data collection and event recognition, which can be integrated into existing video surveillance systems.


IsacVITO represents a real-time computer vision software solution, which detects and tracks vehicles in individual camera sections.
