The Transport Administration is responsible for Sweden’s infrastructure. They plan the transportation system, decide on building projects, provide maintenance, procure services and are responsible for traffic information. In the early 1990s, the Administration introduced speed cameras, which monitor traffic on certain roads and photograph violations. The problem was that the cameras had to be emptied manually, which led to time-consuming administration and extra travel. The requirements for the new solution were higher: In addition to being connected to the cloud, the requirements for reliability and accessibility were extremely high.
The MIIPS platform was quickly installed in a number of speed cameras. A one-year pilot project was carried out to determine whether everything worked as it should. The results of the trial were extremely positive. We met the requirements in all three areas – platform, accessibility and safety – and were engaged to continue to provide services. The solution was so effective that the Transport Administration decided to expand the project to two additional areas.
