We will showcase the Hyperion™ TVM family of sensors for light and traffic measurements in road tunnels at the Øgland System Tunnel Seminar in Stavanger, October 25-26.This includes the TVM-a sensor for traffic compensated measurements of veiling luminance at tunnel entrances according to the latest research and international recommendations including CIE88:2004. Our Hyperion sensors are fully compatible and integrated with advanced lighting control systems from Phoenix Contact. TVM-a supplies veiling luminance estimates and traffic information such as traffic density and speed over the Modbus TCP protocol to either the Advanced Tunnel Solution (ATS) or the Basic Tunnel Solution (BTS). Together these systems form a joint solution for tunnel lighting control allowing improved traffic safety and reduced energy consumption.

At the 12th Andean Seminar of Tunnels and Underground Works in October 2017, we will showcase the Hyperion™ TVM family of sensors for light and traffic measurements in tunnel applications.This includes the TVM-a sensor for measurements of veiling luminance at tunnel entrances according to the latest research and international recommendations including CIE88:2004. Our Hyperion sensors are fully compatible and integrated with advanced lighting control systems from Phoenix Contact. TVM-a supplies veiling luminance estimates and traffic information such as traffic density and speed over the Modbus TCP protocol to the Advanced Tunnel Solution (ATS). Together these systems form a joint solution for tunnel lighting control allowing improved traffic safety and reduced energy consumption.

Our Hyperion™ TVM system for continuous measurements of light and traffic for control of tunnel lighting is now fully integrated with the ATS and BTS advanced control systems from Phoenix Contact. The Hyperion™ TVM systems deliver veiling luminance measurements (Lseq) according to the latest international recommendations CIE88:2004 as well as legacy L20-measurements.

In addition to light measurements, the system includes functionality to estimate and communicate traffic density and speed allowing the control system to optimize the lighting in the threshold and interior zones to minimize energy consumption while maintaining traffic safety. Our cooperation with Phoenix Contact allows the national transport administrations to reach the full potential with the technology!

In 2017, we installed our first Hyperion™ sensors outside a research project - the Hyperion™ RVM (Road Video Meter). The Hyperion™ RVM measures road surface luminance according to the European standard EN 13201 and traffic flow (density and speed) allowing control systems to dynamically adjust the lighting based on actual conditions. The sensor-based control of road lighting ensures that requirements on traffic safety are met while minimising the energy consumption. 

The Hyperion™ RVM sensors control more than 400 LED luminaires on the Öland Bridge - the longest bridge in Sweden and a national test facility for the Swedish Transport Administration. The lighting level on the bridge is continuously adjusted based on the measured traffic density and road surface luminance. This unique installation represents a new generation of intelligent lighting control systems and may be the first of its kind in the world!

The Hyperion™ RVM sensor is closely related to the Hyperion™ TVM (Tunnel Video Meter) sensor used to measure veiling luminance and traffic at tunnel entrances and inside tunnels. 

Together with Phoenix Contact and Thorn Lighting, we have created the next generation of tunnel lighting control system for improved traffic safety and reduced energy consumption. The system involves our advanced video-based sensor - Hyperion™ TVM - for traffic compensated measurements of veilling luminance at the tunnel entrance according to the latest CIE recommendations. In addition to continuous light measurements, the sensor supplies real-time traffic flow data to the PLC-based lighting control system implementing algorithms for dynamically adjusting the LED lights based on the obtained sensor data. On October 19th, we will present our joint system at a seminar day organised by Phoenix Contact in Oslo.  The day will include several talks relevant to professionals in the field of intelligent road and tunnel lighting.

At the World Tunnel Congress (WTC) in June 2017, we will showcase the Hyperion™ TVM family of sensors for light and traffic measurements in tunnel applications. In particular, we will show the TVM-a sensor for measurements of veiling luminance at tunnel entrances according to the latest research and international recommendations including CIE88:2004. Our sensors are fully compatible and integrated with advanced lighting control systems from Phoenix Contact. TVM-a supplies veiling luminance estimates and traffic information such as traffic density and speed over the Modbus TCP protocol to the Advanced Tunnel Solution (ATS). Together these systems form a joint solution for tunnel lighting control allowing improved traffic safety and reduced energy consumption.
