NZTA modernises crash analysis system

emergency_services_personnel_survey_the_scene_of_a_1358490156The New Zealand Transport Agency has selected Unisys to lead the modernisation of the national crash analysis system (CAS).

The new system will automate the input, sharing and analysis of critical data captured at road accident scenes to help identify patterns and hot spots.

Each year there are approximately 30,000 road crashes reported in New Zealand of which around 10,000 involve injuries.

The Transport Agency’s CAS is used to capture and analyse information about road crashes to help determine the cause of individual crashes as well as to identify trends and contributing factors such as high speed or road curvature.

Previously, New Zealand Police would record key crash information on paper and that information was then later manually entered into the CAS. The new solution will leverage the Police’s investment in mobile technology, which includes Intergraph’s Mobile Responder, to capture the data electronically while at the scene.

Under the six-year contract, Unisys will lead the design and implementation of a new version of the CAS based on an open platform, which will provide the flexibility to integrate with other systems, departments and agencies.

Unisys will host the CAS in its Auckland data centre and deliver the solution to NZTA via a software-as-a-service model within a private cloud environment. Unisys will also provide service desk support for users.

Unisys has partnered with Intergraph for viewing complex data and e-Spatial for online mapping tools.

The contract was awarded to Unisys through a competitive tender process. It builds on Unisys’ relationship with NZTA including modernising and supporting the Driver and Vehicle Registry System .
