Casella aids Spanish traffic police
23 January 2013
Casella Spain has been selected by the Spanish Traffic Police to participate in a working group assessing data provided by the instruments included in a monthlong trial of roadside monitoring enclosure systems (Romons)
Casellas integrated Romon, that encompasses, for the first time, both ambient gas and particulates and environmental noise equipment in one system, was included in the recent trials along with other cabins.
The objective of the Spanish Traffic Police is to regulate traffic by the use of roadside ambient pollution monitoring systems on Spains major highways as part of a network-wide traffic management system for air pollution control, using the data to automatically control speed restrictions when contamination reaches trigger levels.
Casella managed the difficult task of installing the monitoring system at night on the central reservation of the A6 motorway.
