Video- and radar-based vehicle sensor
The new TRAFIRADAR vehicle presence sensor is a combination of a video sensor and radar, offering the most accurate detection for a wide range of applications. TRAFIRADAR has been designed to improve traffic safety and efficiency at signalized intersections.
ACCURATE STOP BAR AND ADVANCE DETECTION
TRAFIRADAR will provide traffic data and information on the presence of vehicles approaching or waiting at an intersection. The detection algorithms are based on Traficonís renowned VIP platform of video image processors, which has been installed at thousands of intersections around the world.
MAKING TRAFFIC FLOWS EFFICIENT
TRAFIRADAR will pass over its information to the traffic light controller. As a result, better decisions can be made to control the traffic lights in a more optimal way. TRAFIRADAR is therefore an ideal solution to support traffic adaptive systems.
MORE SAFETY IN THE DILEMMA ZONE
TRAFIRADAR will warn the traffic light controller whenever a vehicle is present in the dilemma zone. In that area, motorists might hesitate whether to continue driving or stop in case the traffi c light switches from green to amber. In the first case, motorists might choose to accelerate with a risk of overspeed and collision at the intersection. In the latter case, an emergency stop might cause a head-tail collision. The traffic light controller can take the vehicle presence info into account to extend green time or to extend all red, so as to avoid dangerous situations at
