Came India Automation Solutions Pvt Ltd, one of the exhibitors of Smart Mobility 2017 -TrafficInfraTech Expo and Parking InfraTech Expo- recently debuted at the international furniture trade show, the Salone del Mobile, in Milan, for controlling the flow of visitors at the Rho-Pero site. The 65 XVia turnstiles is access-control system designed by the group from Treviso, leader in providing integrated technology for automating residential, public and urban spaces.
XVia handles the complex array of data and variables related to reading all of the different types of admission tickets, the high number of peripherals and the over 5 million people who attended the trade shows.
The pedestrian access points to the centre were controlled by 65 automatic turnstiles, positioned on all four sides of the exhibition venue and in the four reception areas in the centre, which control access to some of the pavilions.
A 24-7 Ethernet network connection provides real-time control on all the system's functions. The turnstile is also designed to communicate with visitors, using light and sound signals to make the access stage quicker – just 5 seconds – thus cutting back on queues and long waiting times. The lit-up direction indicators ensure a safe and easy passage when flows are at their highest, and the light signals make it simple to understand straight away when to pass through.
XVia's standard motor-powered mechanism, the tripod pre-rotates when a ticket is validated, thus making it easier for people to pass through. For emergency situations, or when it is necessary to instantly free up the passage way, it is fitted with a drop-away arm function.
This CAME access-control system joins the existing automation technology used for the gates, road barriers and bollards at the Rho-Pero area of the exhibition centre, which have already been controlling the peripheral access points and internal road access for several years.
