M62 - Your Local History

A lot of finds were uncovered during the archaeological evaluation carried out for the M62 Junction 6 Improvement scheme so we thought it would be nice to provide an interactive website so you can see what we found.

Don't Cross or Walk Along Motorways

The Highways Agency aims to make more people aware of the dangers of walking or crossing our motorway. We have launched a poster and radio campaign aimed at 16-25yr olds. Hopefully with our hard hitting posters, our message will come across.

Project Background

HA TOD are in the process of obtaining three years funding for deployment of alternative CCTV cameras across the motorway and trunk road network. The use of these new low cost cameras and installation necessitates research into real time camera control using wide area network communications and protocols. TOD have requested that SSR undertake research to investigate solutions for real time camera control across internet, telephone, GSM and other communications media and to define the protocols and technology bridges required to link to existing HA infrastructure including second generation CCTV and NRTS. The project will investigate and report on suitable technologies and develop a demonstration platform, which will be used to evaluate latency and performance characteristics of these new camera control systems.

Project Objectives

1. Investigation to determine suitable technologies and protocols for real time camera control over Wide Area networks

Project Summary

The project will investigate and report on suitable technologies and develop a demonstration platform, which will be used to evaluate latency and performance characteristics of these new camera control systems.
