TDS celebrates triple product launch at Intertraffic
Florian Weiss of TDS displays the ground-breaking products
Germany-based Traffic Data Systems (TDS) is launching three ground-breaking products at Intertraffic – the TMCS-U Weigh In Motion system, Bike-DSP, and a world first in testing devices (WIM-SIM).
TDS predicts that the TMCS-U with the WIM-DSP unit (Digital Signal Processing, cascadable) will become the new standard for traffic monitoring and Weigh In Motion systems. With a built-in uninterruptible power supply, the company says the device is the world’s most powerful and smallest eight-lane route station to be used for Weigh In Motion, with Kistler Lineas sensors and for classifying with double loops. The small sized WIM-DSP unit is connected to the new Kistler charge amplifier and Lineas sensors to provide a compact and powerful Weigh In Motion system.
Moreover, TDS says that the TMCS-U has been developed to be sold not just to end users, but also to the company’s competitors and subcontractors, as it believes this system will become the new world standard for Weigh In Motion systems as well as for loop classifiers based on pattern recognition. At Intertraffic, TDS is also introducing its newly-developed Bike-DSP which doesn´t just count, but also measures speed as well as direction of travel and classifies different types of bicycles, for instance the Danish Christiania bikes. It is a separate interface that is hooked up to the TMCS-U.
Traffic Data Systems will also show what it claims are the world´s first digital multivendor capability testing devices (reference instruments) for inductive loops as well as Kistler Lineas sensors. The system simulates up to 16 external loop and/or WIM signals and generates defined reproducible vehicle classes, speed and/or weight information.
