Latest ClearWay incident detection from Navtech
NavTech Radar will be showcasing its new CTS350-X long range radar, the latest unit in its ClearWay automatic incident detection radar system, at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014.
ClearWay is an all-weather radar system which provides a way of automatically detecting incidents, including stopped vehicles, people and debris on strategic roads, bridges and in tunnels. It uses high frequency radar to scan the whole road surface, both up and downstream. The radar detects objects and then tracking software, which also forms part of the ClearWay solution, will follow both moving and stationary objects.
The new CTS350-X, which provides line of sight road coverage of up to 1,000 metres, is unobtrusive, compact and rugged in design. It is smaller and lighter than previous models and comes with enhanced software features and a reduced price tag. When combined with Witness processing software, NavTech Radar says it generates a low false alarm rate of typically 1 per km per 24 hours.
