Ultrasonic vehicle detector for drive-through operations
First publishedin ITS International
Ultrasonic vehicle detector needs no loops
EMX’s Drive Thru ultrasonic vehicle sensor, USVD-4X, uses patent pending triangular planar array technology to detect the presence of a vehicle and is suitable for any drive-through operation including parking. The post- or wall-mounted detection head consists of four ultrasonic transducers and an internal microprocessor-based control board and is aimed at the vehicle entrance to initiate a transaction.
In operation the sensor scans the expected location for a vehicle and on detection activates its output without the need for any in-ground hardware.
