Project Introduction

The A2 motorway in the Lucerne area between Reussegg and Grosshof is undergoing complete reconstruction, and is expected to be completed in 2013. A high priority has been placed on ensuring that the roads and tunnels meet today's technology standards, with particular emphasis on noise protection, environmental protection, and traffic control and monitoring. Two essential requirements are the ability to monitor traffic speed and control traffic lights remotely, and wireless technology will be used to reduce wiring costs and simplify implementation.

System Requirements

-Must support cellular communications
-Serial interface to connect speed radar detector
-Digital output for traffic light control
-Must be able to work with either private or dynamic IPs
-Easy to integrate into WinCC SCADA
