Sunstone Systems and Partners Win Highways England Award for Customer Focused Network Management

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Sunstone Systems, HW Martin, Galliford Try, and Vivacity Labs are proud to announce that they have won the Customer Focused Network Management Award at the 2020 Highways England Awards. The award recognizes the team's innovative project to deploy a solar-powered surveillance system on the Strategic Road Network.

The system, which was developed by Sunstone Systems, uses solar panels to power a network of cameras that monitor traffic flow and identify incidents. The data from the cameras is then sent to a central control room, where it is used to improve traffic management and make the road safer for motorists.

The project was a major success, and it has the potential to be rolled out to other highways in the UK. The award is a testament to the partnership working by everyone on the team and Sunstone's ability to deliver technologies and improvements for everyone who uses the roads.

The Solar-Powered Surveillance System

The solar-powered surveillance system is a major innovation in the field of traffic management. The system is completely self-contained, meaning that it does not require any mains power or cables. This makes it ideal for remote and off-grid locations, such as highways.

The system is also very cost-effective. The solar panels generate enough power to run the cameras and the data transmission equipment. This means that there are no ongoing running costs, which makes the system very attractive to highway authorities.

The Benefits of the System

The solar-powered surveillance system has a number of benefits for highway authorities and motorists. The system can help to improve traffic flow by identifying and resolving incidents quickly. It can also help to make the road safer by providing early warning of hazards.

In addition, the system is very cost-effective and easy to maintain. This makes it a very attractive option for highway authorities who are looking for a way to improve traffic management and make the roads safer.

The Future of Solar-Powered Surveillance

The future of solar-powered surveillance is bright. The demand for these types of systems is growing, as businesses and organizations look for more sustainable and reliable ways to monitor their operations. Sunstone Systems is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth. The company has a strong track record of innovation, and it is committed to providing its customers with the best possible solutions.
