On June 12, 2024, LMT, in collaboration with Lithuanian system integrator FIMA, launched the LMT transport monitoring system‘s first test spot in Lithuania. The solution will run in test mode until August 15, 2024, providing the City of Vilnius with full access to statistics about traffic violations at a certain intersection in Vilnius.  

During the test phase, the LMT solution will focus on detecting three types of traffic violations at the particular intersection – running red lights, making illegal turns, and monitoring bus lanes. Bus lane monitoring means that the system will detect the types of vehicles driving the bus lane, analyze their number plate types, and detect unauthorized use of the bus line, according to Lithuanian traffic rules. These will be the first tests of the system’s whitelist/blacklist functionality at such a scale.

To launch the transport monitoring system’s test spot in Lithuania, LMT collaborated with the system integrator FIMA. This is the first time it collaborated with a local system integrator rather than the municipality itself. 

This collaboration marks our second export customer, and we're pleased it's in the Baltics – our home region. We especially want to thank the FIMA team for their patience and enthusiasm in introducing new solutions, which is crucial in an innovative environment. We are also open to new collaborations on testing the LMT smart traffic monitoring platform across Europe, especially the CEE region, as we see plenty of potential in enhancing traffic safety there.

The LMT transport monitoring system is also used in the City of Graz in Austria and in several locations across Latvia. The system’s key functionalities include the identification and classification of objects, object location and trajectory, and identification of license plate numbers and traffic light signals. 

The system combines high-resolution cameras with machine vision and edge computing. Traffic infringements are evaluated on the edge, and if an infraction is detected, the information is sent to servers through the mobile network for further analysis.

Edge computing enables the use of existing mobile network coverage and reduces the installation requirements – the system can be installed in a matter of hours without construction and only requires an electrical connection. As a result, municipalities do not require significant investments in the infrastructure to benefit from smart city technologies. The solution is fully GDPR-compliant, as well as 4G compatible and 5G ready – it can be installed in any city with mobile network coverage.
