Tunnel Automation Market: Overview

A tunnel contains a large number of ventilation systems, lighting systems, and speed limit indications, among other things, all of which demand a large amount of power and must be managed successfully and efficiently in order to control traffic. Any flaw in the operation of any system, or any malfunction in the power supply, might result in serious mishaps. As a result, tunnel system automation is the best alternative for avoiding such unfortunate accidents. Tunnels make it easier to transport things, cars, and products swiftly, but at a higher cost and risk. Tunnel automation can save money by reducing human labor and utilizing renewable energy sources. Tunnel automation is supposed to improve safety by creating an optimum environment for speedy mobility. Tight government rules, an increase in traffic accidents, a strong need for greater security, and the rising integration of cloud computing technologies and IoT into tunnel automation solutions are the primary factors pushing tunnel automation adoption.

Advancements in digital signal processing, embedded computer architecture, digital sensing, and navigation and guidance, have unfolded automation and innovation in the tunnel system around the world. Currently, automation technology is highly attractive toward underground road tunnels, rail tunnels, and underwater tunnels. The main components of a tunnel automation system include smart lighting, fire detection, hazardous-cargo detection, traffic management system, video surveillance, emergency call system, traffic counting, fire extinguishing system, and digital control systems. Switzerland, England, France, Norway, Japan, Colorado, China, Malaysia, etc. are expressing interest in automating their tunnels.
