Valerann scoops prestigious Intertraffic Award

The coveted Inspiration Award at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2024 has been won by British company Valerann, for its advanced real-time data analytics platform Lanternn by Valerann.

At the opening ceremony of Intertraffic Amsterdam today the three winning entrants were announced for this year’s Intertraffic Awards, with the three winners chosen from the shortlist of 15 nominees.

The judges said: “The Inspiration Award went to Valerann for creating Lanternn by Valerann, a traffic management platform that seamlessly integrates all the very latest data sources and delivers them in such a dynamic and uniquely actionable way that the jury felt it to be one of the most versatile and usable innovations ever seen. It takes familiar concepts in traffic optimisation and delivers them in such a highly accurate way, that it enables a new level of real-time reactions, that the jury believes it will inspire urban mobility management for years to come.”

Another UK-based company, Intelligent Instruments won for its Sound Vue noise-enforcement camera system in the User Experience category. Noise reduction also won the Green Globe Award, with Italian company See recognised for its “highly innovative” Whisper NB-Eco-40-A3 acoustic panels.

A statement from the jury reads: “All the nominees to this edition of the Intertraffic Awards were of an incredibly high standard, which gave the jury an extremely difficult task to pick just one winner in each of the three categories.

They continued: “Whisper acoustic panels certainly weren’t the only product focusing on reducing noise from road transport. However, they were, the jury felt, worthy of the Green Globe Award due to not only their innovative low-CO2 production method but also that they completely do away with the need for any surrounding casing to protect them so that they can be easily attached to any existing wall, and last for at least 50 years. The sheer usability – instantly reducing the materials required for building noise barriers – and also their recyclability meant Sealed Air’s Whisper can make a real, immediate difference to carbon footprints.

“Sound barriers help to reduce background noise from traffic, however, sometimes certain individual vehicles can be so loud that they break the law. Until recently enforcing such laws was challenging. But now, Intelligent Instruments has created Sound Vue. Using a combination of video, AI and ANPR, Sound Vue can detect and fine vehicles that break legal noise levels. The jury felt this represents a new trend in enforcement but the key reason that Sound Vue was deemed worthy of the User Experience Award was due to its elegant user interface and the ease with which the enforcement process can be automated.
