ISA automatic speed assistant

18-March-2022
ISA is an automatic speed assistant that assists drivers in not exceeding the maximum speed. As a result, ISA not only contributes to road safety, but also, for example, to combating noise nuisance and air pollution. ISA works for this with camera recognition that reads the speed signs. With the signs that are now along the Dutch roads, these ISA cameras will not always work properly. ISA is an automatic speed assistant that assists drivers in not exceeding the maximum speed. As a result, ISA not only contributes to road safety, but also, for example, to combating noise nuisance and air pollution. ISA works for this with camera recognition that reads the speed signs. With the signs that are now along the Dutch roads, these ISA cameras will not always work properly. The Whitepaper of the University of Ghent (B) shows that modern cars with smart cameras cannot fully meet this demand to make the Netherlands ISA-Proof. The automotive industry underlines this.
Successful operation and acceptance of ISA requires highly visible, legible, logical, and credible speed signs that can be read by man and machine. Our analyzes have shown that signs are missing, and adjustments are needed. Signs that are crooked and soiled also require attention.
Signs that need to be adapted in terms of design are, for example, the beginning of the built-up signs. The start of the sign officially means 50 km/h and the end of the sign is 80 km/h. To a camera and the machine translation, these signs fall into the 'advertising' category and the start sign has the same characteristics as the normalized street sign. An international approach is expected with the European standard. Beginning of the built-up signs, such as the concept designed on the right, would match this idea and the needs of the automotive industry. Because ISA does not only act on observations of assets, but can also do so on the basis of area data, it is good to map out the data of speed areas and make it available. This must be kept up to date, reliable and complete.
HR Groep Streetcare has been commissioned by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management to inventory the data of all RVV traffic signs along and above all roads in the Netherlands and to make some of it available as Open Data. But did you know that HR Groep Streetcare can unlock the complete and detailed dataset of legal and non-statutory RVV signs for every road authority via Intelligent Public Space management (IPSm). IPSm not only provides complete information about sign and carrier type, but also text, height and viewing direction of the sign, among other things. In addition, you can link traffic decisions via IPSm. This not only provides you with a digital overview of your area, but also lays the foundation for a visual inspection of your signs.

What steps can road authorities take?

Road authorities can already record road signs, both temporary and permanent, via our free IPSm app. We make the IPSm app available to parties, such as road authorities and contractors, who implement changes in the public space. Would you like more information about what you can do to prepare your area for ISA?
