Infracontrol was founded in 1993 as an independent system integrator specializing in IT for infrastructure. The customers are primarily public sector purchasers for the state and municipalities. Today the company has annual sales of SEK 50 million, employs 25 people and has offices in Göteborg, Stockholm and Oslo.
Infracontrol has delivered control- and supervisory systems in a number of complex traffic facilities such as traffic tunnels, traffic management systems and variable speed limit systems in Sweden. The company consolidate all functions and information in a clear user interface so that the staff at the traffic control center can make the right decisions and take action quickly and easily. The system primarily consists of automatic safety functions that detect traffic disruptions and lower the speed limit or display traffic information.
A traffic tunnel is a good way of making traffic flow smoothly and of creating an attractive environment in areas where there was previously heavy traffic. But this is only possible if a high level of safety can be ensured. Infracontrol creates a reliable and flexible platform that offers complete control of everything from pumps and lighting to traffic lights and TV cameras.
Many people may not realize that traffic tunnels in urban areas are very complicated structures. There are a great number of technical installations such as traffic control equipment, ventilation, TV surveillance, power supplies, lighting and pumps. All of this is in place to ensure that it is always safe to be in the tunnel. However, all of this technology requires coordination.
Infracontrol makes it possible to consolidate all systems and functions in one integrated entity. We make the various systems interact in order to maintain safety and accessibility. The users in the traffic control center can manage all functions related to traffic, operations and safety in a uniform user environment. This includes features such as ready-to-implement shutdown plans where just a few clicks of the mouse are enough to quickly and easily reroute traffic or close a tunnel tube.
