Kistler Group (Kistler) will showcase its KiTraffic Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) solutions at this year’s Intertraffic in Amsterdam from the 20-23 March 2018. The innovations are intended to support road owners and authorities in road and traffic monitoring, weight enforcement and weight-based tolling.
The KiTraffic Plus, a WIM solution for automated road monitoring, comes with Lineas quartz sensors and is said to measure vehicle loads at different speeds on a range of lanes. It uses two to eight sensors per lane and can be combined with camera systems for vehicle identification and other applications. The data is processed in a protected roadside cabinet with analyses available in real-time via web-based human machine interface or application programming interface transfers.
KiTraffic Statistics is designed with the intention of providing a cost-efficient WIM solution for clients who want an overview of road usage. The Lineas Compact quartz sensors are integrated 25mm below the surface of the road, and are covered with a grouting compound, which is said to ensure an extended sensor lifetime while providing accurate data for Traffic Data Collection.
In addition, Kistler are offering a road analysis to determine the best position of sensors and a calibration service from its engineers to help ensure accurate measurement throughout the WIM system’s lifecycle. It is available remotely via web or phone, as well as on-site.
