Valerann to showcase the benefits of data fusion for road safety and incident management enhancement on Irish motorways

Valerann is delivering their data fusion platform under the enhancing Motorway
Operation Services (eMOS) programme being delivered by Transport Infrastructure
Ireland (TII) and Roughan & O’Donovan-AECOM (RODA). Valerann, a technology
provider for road analyics, have deployed the Lanternn by Valerann™ (LbV) pla3orm
to pilot the benefits of data fusion on parts of the motorway network to enhance road
safety and incident detection in Ireland.

One of the main objectives of the deployment, focusing on sections of two key motorways in
Ireland, the M1, and M6, are an assessment of the potential for using deep Data Fusion of third-party
data sources to provide improved situational awareness, to supplement information gathered
from fixed Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).

Through the use of Lanternn by Valerann™ (LbV) to provide additional insight into the occurrence
of incidents, Valerann aim to demonstrate the added value of adopting a Data Fusion approach,
to provide insights to Control Room Operators in the Motorway Opera/ons Control
Centre (MOCC) in Dublin. This would assist in enhancing TII’s situational awareness and
understanding of traffic conditions on these motorways, particularly in areas with lower-level ITS
and CCTV coverage. The use of LbV aims to provide a holistic, real time overview of the traffic
situation on a single platform, including indicators of elevated incident risk, thereby enhancing
decision-making capabilities without replacing the existing systems.

If successful, this evaluation will focus on reducing the MOCC operators’ reliance on manual event
verification, improving detection and classification of road incidents and reducing response /mes.
Developed by Valerann, LbV is an advanced AI-powered solution that ingests and analyses data
from the existing roadside infrastructure, third-party sources, historical incident data and
weather data to deliver a detailed real-time overview of the road traffic situation and an accurate
prediction of potential road incidents.

“Our commitment to ensuring the safety, resilience and sustainability of the motorway network
remains our top priority in this partnership with Valerann.” says Lewis Feely, Director of Roughan
& O’Donovan. “This collaboration underscores TII’s dedication to embracing emerging
technological solutions to support the operation of Ireland’s motorway network.”

“We are thrilled to collaborate with TII and Roughan & O’Donovan on this initiatve. Leveraging
our technology, we aim to bring a new dimension of intelligence and efficiency to the motorway
network in Ireland. This project is not just about enhancing road safety and incident response, it’s
about setting a new standard for ITS-enabled proactive road management.” – says Michael Vardi,
Valerann’s co-founder and Chief Business Officer.
